Feel the vibes. Nothing says ‘out of office’ like VIBE 2.0’s happy hour in DIFC, which is now available every day throughout the week. Grab a friend or colleague, soak up epic vibes from 4pm-8pm and spread the season’s cheer. Reservations are mandatory.
Christmas lunch. Friday is the big day and if you’re looking for a last-minute meal out, Kris with a View at Park Regis Kris Kin is holding a brunch complete with festive tunes. Highlights from the menu include roulade of stuffed turkey breast with chestnut, sage and caramelised sweet onion stuffing, turkey gravy, and a decadent butter pound pudding with matured raisins and coated in icing. Get there from 12pm to 3pm and prices start at Dh129.
Kids’ club. Children’s play factory OliOli plans to bid 2020 a grand goodbye, whilst welcoming 2021 with hope and positivity. From Saturday, the Al Quoz destination is holding activities including mad science experiments, robot races and a sensory play experience. It’s only on for a week, so catch it quick.
A-maze-ing day out. Don’t be late for this very important date with an Alice In Wonderland themed maze at the Waterfront Market in Dubai. Bringing back safe entertainment to the Market, enjoy a range of outdoor kiosks selling fresh food and gifts whilst kids will also be able to play in the new playground area and trampoline park. Entry into the Maze includes free popcorn as well as the chance to win some great prizes in a daily competition.
Dreaming of a bright Christmas. It’s fun to recreate the snow and decorations befitting a northern European Christmas, but remember we find ourselves in a country with one of the greatest winters on Earth and some would love the chance to spend Xmas on the beach. If you’re one of them, Azure Beach at Rixos Premium Dubai is offering you a glamorous alternative for the festive season: a private, luxury cabana experience complete with a plunge pool for some seasonal spirit in private. Packages for the small cabanas start from Dh3000 minimum spend and can host six guests.
