Explore venues like Curry House, a restaurant serving up sumptuous Indian, Chinese and Mexican cuisine.

If a trendy restaurant is more your vibe, venture to Frevo and discover Brazil on the beach. Tuck into a churrascaria meal or savour the lamb rack as you sit on the outside terrace and soak up the Marina skyline and pulsating live music.
For a crowd-pleasing mix of modernity coupled with old Dubai, head down to Bastakiah Nights, quietly tucked away in the Al Fahidi Neighbourhood.
