Located within Megaplex Dubai, adjacent to the Grand Hyatt Dubai, the adults-only entertainment destination promises bowling, cricket simulators, digital darts and pool. So, whatever way you like to get your thrills and unleash your competitive streak, get ready to round up your mates and head to Tiger Strikes.

Christiano Ronaldo and Rafael Nadel’s super restaurant

The restaurant, born in Madrid and now found in Ibiza, Beverly Hills, Mexico City and Riyadh, is now open in Hotel Boulevard, Autograph Collection in Downtown Dubai, formerly the Vida Downtown. Tatel promises to fuse traditional Spanish gastronomy with cosmopolitan global influences befitting of Dubai’s global tastes. At its global locations, it pairs its modern Spanish cuisine with live music and a vibrant bar scene, which we hope to also find at the Dubai iteration when it opens soon.
