It's the weekend, and we're here to save you from the clutches of indecision by giving you all the best events happening around the city. You're welcome.
The Messy Friday Night
It's the moment we've all been waiting for. Hot Mess is finally making its long-overdue comeback. After a pause, the iconic party by Factory People Beirut is all set to light up Dubai's Friday nights once again, now at Helipad by Frozen Cherry. It's been far too long since we've seen Tala and Wass on the decks, and this Friday, we get the package deal with their back-to-back set.
The World Tour
Speaking of long-awaited returns, Dubai's beloved Global Village has just flung open its doors for a new season of worldwide wonders, and it's time to eat our way around the world without leaving Dubai. With sizzling street foods and mouth-watering delicacies from Tokyo to Tehran, there's enough to keep your taste buds busy all season. Trust us, your stomach will thank you for the trip (but your wallet might not). While you're there, stop by the Palestine pavilion to show some love and support and immerse yourself in their rich culture and hospitality.
The Soulful Brunch
Looking for a brunch that's not your typical Dubai scene? Step back in time at Soul Kitchen's Flowers on Toast Saturday Brunch, where the spirit of the 60s and 70s comes alive. Get lost in the music curated by expert sound selectors and indulge in Chef Margarita Vaamonde's creative mezze, inspired by the fusion of Arab and Latin American flavors.
