More restaurants, more beautiful views and more Ladies nights! Dubai is truly a city that does not sleep - we have a list of some more new restaurants and lounges that opened their doors to everyone! 


From the moment you set your foot in TABU, you’re greeted with a quirky ambiance and artistic views and once you’re at TABU, you’ll want to stay and dance the night away.

The theatrics at TABU go beyond its performances - experience interactive dining and appreciate the exquisite art that is Japanese cuisine. We don’t want to give away too much. Head over to TABU for an unforgettable evening.

P.S: Now that the weather is getting cooler, watch out for the beautiful terrace space and get your next ‘gram worthy shot with the two Sumos framing the Burj Khalifa. 


Recently having been visited by HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai and His Highness Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Dubai Crown Prince and Chairman of The Executive Council of Dubai, Alaya has the Royal stamp of approval.

This DIFC based restaurant has two of Dubai restaurants’ well-known heavyweights, Evgeny Kuzin and Izu Ani. They embarked on this journey called Alaya to bring us a culinary experience themed as a ‘Tribute to the Middle East”. 


Adding to the culinary scene on Bluewaters Island, VAGA recently opened up and has been creating a buzz. Short for “vagabond”, this two-storey contemporary restaurant invites people to journey through a fantasy world where two distinct cultures are brought together through food.

P.S: if you are looking to watch cooking in action, this is the place for you. VAGA separates the kitchen from you with two large glass windows, framed by beautiful copper tiles.

One more dinner and show, with the edge of being on the 53rd Floor of Sheraton Grand Sheikh Zayed Road - it’s claimed to be the highest dinner show in the Gulf.

You might start off with enjoying the drop-dead gorgeous views of Dubai’s skyline, but we guarantee that you won’t be able to take your eyes off the stage once the performances start.

With each performance crafted with precision, we know you’re going to be mesmerized and hooked while enjoying a menu built for every taste! 


DIFC is home to some exciting culinary gems and EKAI is no exception - with a chic and elegant vibe, EKAI should be your new place to dine and unwind.

The interiors match the vibe with a blue and golden theme with artsy and edgy decor and pop art on the walls. Adding to that, the menu is primarily Italian with a fusion of Mediterranean food. The drinks are what you MUST try when you head to EKAI. That’s all we’re going to say!

P.S: EKAI has Happy Hours everyday from 6pm to 8pm. Enjoy drinks starting at AED29.

P.S x 2: Ladies, if you’re looking to enjoy a Ladies Night midweek, head to EKAI for unlimited house pourings and 2 appetizers @ AED129.
