Date Night at the revamped Siddharta Lounge @ Grosvenor House Dubai

Did you make it to the opening party of Siddharta Lounge last Monday? I really should’ve made an effort, gotten dressed up and walked across the bridge. It’s literally a ten minute walk from home and if I peek out of the balcony I could just see it. But… it was one of those days. […]

A Fab Lunch @ Maine Oyster Bar & Grill Dubai

If Lovin’ Dubai were to do a post on this, they would probably title it, “This has got to be the best business lunch deal in JBR”…… or “If you work or live in JBR, you have to come here for lunch.” Unfortunately as great a title that would be to get everyone to click on […]

Click, click, click, click, still nothing. So, you must […]

An evening under the stars @ Shades, The Address Dubai Marina

Few weeks ago I was struggling to find a ladies night spot for Wednesday, so I jumped onto this site and out popped Shades. Ah ha, since when did Shades have a ladies night? 🙂 I emailed them ( as the sceptical person in me does ) to reconfirm, and they repied to say it’s on, woohoo! […]

Italian Breakfast Date @ Bussola, Westin Mina Seyahi

He he he. The 1st of the month is always exciting for liloneoftheashes. That’s when the Entertainer gives its monthly deals. This morning I woke up, and had a flick around the app and guess who’s on – Bussola Italian Restaurant, at The Westin Mina Seyahi 🙂 We’ve seen this place from the outside many […]
