Let’s be honest, after you’ve worked all week, the last thing you want to do is waste your precious R&R time sifting through offers and websites. So we’ve done the hard work for you and selected the most interesting, unique, fun, and exciting activities happening in Dubai this weekend that you won’t want to miss. So whether it’s a one-night only special performance, a new exhibit, an interesting cultural workshop, or even just a well-deserved spa treatment, you will never worry about what you should do this weekend again.
Go See ‘Chicago’ at Dubai Opera
From now until January 15th, rouge your knees and roll your stockings down, because Broadway‘s longest-running musical, Chicago, is going to give us the old razzle dazzle. Featuring much of the original Fosse choreography, and a band that will have you shimmy-shaking along, Kander and Ebb‘s most famous musical is bringing all that jazz and more to the Dubai Opera this weekend and next. It’s the most fun you’ll ever have with six merry murderesses. Trust us.
Catch ‘Les Miserables’ at The Junction
Do you hear the people sing? Art Box Theater will be singing the music of the people this weekend at The Junction in Alserkal Avenue in Basem Adel’s adaptation of Les Miserables. With a score that will haunt you for years to come, and a cast of over 15 different nationalities, go on a journey with a group of people who find themselves stuck in an old theater for a night and compelled to dream a dream of time gone by. Dubai’s award-winning theater company is back with its most awe-inspiring production to date, and you simply do not want to miss it.
Don’t Miss Rogelio Douglas Jr. at Q’s Back for This Weekend Only
Internationally-acclaimed and bonafide triple-threat, Rogelio Douglas Jr, is back in Dubai and playing at Q’s Bar & Lounge this weekend only. He’s brought his tapping shoes, his smooth-like-butter voice, and all the moves like Jagger we have missed since his last residency at Palazzo Versace. His shows never cease to impress, and it is guaranteed to be one incredible night. Plus, he’s this editor’s old friend from LA, so you know where we’ll be this weekend.
View Iconic Images From ‘The Silver Screen and Beyond’ at Masterpiece Fine Art Gallery
Masterpiece Fine Art is inaugurating the opening of Gallery 3 with a photography collection entitled ‘The Silver Screen and Beyond.’ Featuring the works of fashion and celebrity photographers, including Markus Klinko, visitors will have the opportunity to view iconic portraits of legends like Marilyn Monroe, David Bowie, Audrey Hepburn, Sean Connery, and many more. It’s a highly curated collection of all of pop culture’s most legendary faces, but it will close at the end of January, so make sure you catch it before the stars fade away.
This Cold Weather Calls for Chalet 105 x Mont Blanc
With the cooler temperatures, what better place to stay cozy than at our favorite winter Chalet 105? In collaboration with Mont Blanc, Chalet 105 delivers all the ski resort vibes, vintage furniture, and warm fireplace views while you dine on fondue and raclette as if you are in the Alps themselves. Located at La Cantine Du Faubourg as well as Twiggy by La Cantine, it is starting to look like this weekend just got a little warmer.
