From a great dinner deal to a pool day or an extra sitting at The Laughter Factory…

It’s nearly the weekend in Dubai once again, which means it’s time to start thinking about your plans. Even if you’re more of a do-it-on-a-whim kind of person, we’ve rounded up plenty of great dinner deals, happy hours and a pool day to choose from.

Here’s 5 awesome things to do in Dubai this weekend…


1. Enjoy a three-course dinner with a bottle of wine

For a chilled out Thursday night catch up with friends, urban Italian restaurant Motorino has just the deal for you. Every day, you can avail a fantastic deal, where 1 starter, two mains, 1 dessert and a bottle of house wine will cost you just Dhs199 per couple.

Motorino, JA Ocean View Hotel, Dubai, offer available every day from 5pm to 10pm, Dhs199 per couple. Tel: (04) 814 5918.


2. Go for a wallet-friendly pool day

If Friday doesn’t involve brunching, it usually means a pool day is in order. Head to the stunning Mosaic Chill Pool Bar at Kempinski Hotel Mall of the Emirates, where entry is Dhs250 which is entirely redeemable on food and beverages. There’s a pool bar, so you can take shelter from the hot temperatures there.

Mosaic Chill Pool Bar, Kempinski Hotel Mall of The Emirates, Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai, open daily, 8am to 7.30pm, Dhs250 fully redeemable on food and beverage, every day. Tel: 04 409 5006.

Dubai’s most popular comedy show, the Laughter Factory is back, and it’s been seriously popular. So much so, that every show has sold out. Until now. Organisers have added one more Friday lunch show so you can still get your laughs. Danny O’Brien, Nick Page and Peter Flanagan will be performing and you can enjoy main courses from Dhs35, along with some great drinks deals.
