September is a funny month. It’s not quite winter and festive season and it’s not quite summertime anymore either. You might think it’s cooler, or you might not. Either way, we’re itching to get out and about and we’ve found some wonderful places to keep us busy until winter really hits!
Bakemart Gourmet: Gourmet Pizza
Estimated Savings: AED49
Location: Umm Suqeim
Our Opinion: The menu is bursting with flavour and choices at Bakemart. We’re particularly fond of their newly launched gourmet pizza. It’s all made inhouse, even the pizza dough! It’s especially popular with business lunch-goers who need a quick bite on the go without compromising on the quality. Plus, the cakes and bread here are literally mouth-watering. Who could resist?!
Top Tip: Grab a cake on your way out. They’re too good to miss.
Café Nikki: Summer Brunch
Estimated Savings: AED295
Location: Nikki Beach Resort & Spa
Our Opinion: You could easily mistake your surroundings here at Nikki Beach and forget you were even in the UAE. It’s chic, white and cool tones are reminiscent of beach clubs across Europe and the vibe is equally chill. Cafe Nikki is the perfect spot for a relaxed afternoon with gorgeous views and unlimited drinks on ice.
Top Tip: Wear your best boho outfit because the photo opportunities are endless here. Oh, and don’t forget your sunglasses!
Estimated Savings: AED70
Location: JW Marriott Marquis
Our Opinion: All the way from Lebanon, this funky venue is quite the hit amongst Dubai party-goers. It is definitely a place to been seen and the music, decor and swanky vibes are not out of place in this city of glitz and glam.
Top Tip: Wear your comfy shoes because it’s quite a trek through the hotel to actually get to the venue!
Key West Bar and Grill: Main Course
Estimated Savings: AED120
Our Opinion: This exclusive yet unpretentious venue gives us crazy tropical island vibes with European refinement. It’s a winner in September with an indoor/outdoor set-up that gives you the best of both worlds.
Top Tip: Bring your swimming costume because you’ll find the sun, sea and sand too hard to resist after your delicious food.
Odyssey Nursery: 50% Off One Week Camp or 50% Off Registration
Estimated Savings: AED722 or AED750
Location: Umm Suqeim
Our Opinion: September means kids go back to school! Now you might be rejoicing at this after a long summer surrounded by ankle-biters but for parents with extra little tykes, this means choosing your child’s first school. Odyssey is a top choice and even better, it’s 50% off thanks to us. You’re welcome!
Top Tip: Pack the school lunches and backpacks the night before. Trust us, doing it in the morning is a nightmare and an added pressure you don’t need.
