During the many years I lived in Dubai, I must have sipped drinks on the wide, breezy veranda of Bahri Bar hundreds of times. It was the bar I took my many visitors to Dubai—from my Mum to my old school friends—on their first night in the city and...

Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Blvd - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
From the moment it opened Neos became my go-to bar when I wanted to impress my visitors to Dubai. From the giddy heights of this very glamorous bar on the 63rd floor of The Address hotel, one of Dubai's swankiest, they could not only watch the...

While many of Dubai's cafes offer afternoon tea, it's more fitting to partake in the tradition in a posh hotel lobby. Dubai is actually one of the few cities in the world where I encourage people to spend time in hotel lobbies. Thanks to the...

4 B Street, Al Karama, Behind Park Regis Hotel, Bur Dubai - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
There is such a mind-boggling variety of food cramped up in the block behind the Park Regis hotel in Karama, that your brains get fried into this chewy schmukaroo of dinner-time confusion. Should you do Ethiopian? Or Sudanese falafel? Or...

Umm Suqeim Road, Al Barsha 2 - Dubai - United Arab Emirates
Tucked away in a very dusty, uninspiring road behind the Mall of Emirates, Cabrito Mandi is a traditional restaurant that caters to the carnivorous taste buds. The dish to order is their Lamb Shoulder haneeth, crusted in cumin and falling off the...
