1. OUiBAR + TERRACE
OUIBar + Terrace at Radisson RED Dubai Silicon Oasis blends the best of many worlds. A super-cool ’n casual dining space, it has a stunning outdoor terrace, ideal for Dubai’s winter weather, with a 2.5m screen for sport lovers’ vital viewing. The perfect place for sundowners in a contemporary setting, you’ll get 50 per cent off daily drinks from 4-7pm, while the bar’s Sunset Sessions every Friday is a chilled way to see in the weekend. Another thing we love is Teachers Night every Wednesday, where OUIBar pays tribute to all academic staff with three free drinks from 4-7pm.
Promising a true feeling of la bella Italia, Certo at Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Media City dishes up some of the city’s most authentic Italian food, served amid black and white photos of quintessential Italian life peppering the walls.
Start off with an aperitivo at the beautiful marble bar, before slinking into a banquette seat for La Vita Bella ladies night, Festa Di Famiglia Saturday brunch or two-for-one lunch. Think burrata, octopus salad and tuna ceviche with fritto misto, porcini mushroom risotto and pan-fried seabass. The homemade Tiramisú will round off your meal perfectly. Delizioso.
3. THE FISH MARKET
Seaside chic reigns supreme at The Fish Market at Radisson Blu, Dubai Deira Creek, where pared back décor inspired by the coast sets the scene for truly wonderful seafood. Inviting guests to get involved, you just grab a basket, ‘shop’ for your freshest catch and ask the chef to cook it exactly as you’d like, be it red snapper, lobster thermidor or Singaporean-style king crab. The restaurant has its own oyster shucker, too. Book now and get 50 per cent of the tasting menu, or go for lunch or dinner from Saturday-Thursday and take advantage of unlimited servings of your favourite seafood. Sea you there.
