Most happy hours deals in Dubai start after work, which for most people is – around 5pm, or 6pm. Unfortunately this does not work for me, as that’s ‘dinner-time’ with the kids. For a lot of us who are able to sneak out earlier in the afternoon, an early mid-afternoon drink suits better. That way […]

We had spent a few evenings by the Park Hyatt lagoon pool back in December, watching the restaurant being built. Little did we know that it would be Twiggy, one of La Cantine’s newest venture – and a very successful one it appears to be, seeing how busy it was on a late Monday afternoon. […]

(Scroll down for detail on ladies nights at Vii) Just look at that. Tell me where else in Dubai can you find another terrace lounge that looks anything similar, and I’m there 🙂 Few weeks ago we were invited to a media preview of VII, a bar nestled on the 7th floor of the Conrad […]
