Your guide of things to do in the UAE this month, including top UAE road trips, new restaurants to try, nightlife news, and more… 

Cabin fever has taken on new meaning during these times, hasn’t it?  Though the UAE is still very much in the midst of this pandemic, guidelines have been put in place to allow hotels, restaurants, cinemas and beach clubs to open safely so that we can try to save what semblance of 2020 we have left. And since nothing feels more freeing than a road trip, we’ve put together a guide to our favourite UAE road trip destinations, with details about how to have the best time (yes, even now), all while keeping your safety top of mind.

In restaurant news, we have the verdict on the new fine dining spot Hanami in Dubai and Louvre Abu Dhabi, Fouquet’s, as well as some casual eateries in the form of Cycle Bistro, and our review of the latest Secret Parties brunch to launch at Ritz Carlton DIFC.

Elsewhere, there’s our top Thursday evening deals in Dubai, monthly subscription boxes you need to try, wacky workouts, and news of our next What’s On Lock In – the family edition. Throw in some hot news about our latest supper club in Abu Dhabi, and a whole little booklet of wellness wonders and you’ve got the perfect package to kick start your autumn. Get out there and explore – and don’t forget to prep your road trip soundtrack.
