The weekend is over but that doesn’t mean the work week has to be a bore, bring it to life with some of these cool things to do.
1. Unwind with Jazz Night
Tuesdays can be ridiculously long, so take the chance to chill out at Club Vista Mare’s Jazz Nights at Palm Jumeirah until 27 February. From 6-8pm chill out with friends and colleagues to the beats of modern jazz along with happy hour benefits. The setting is also one worth mentioning: al fresco on the Club’s terrace with fantastic beachfront setting.
2. Let loose at Dubai Jazz Festival
Attended by more than 500,000 guests since 2003, the Emirates Airline Dubai Jazz Festival has featured the musical, smooth talent of global stars and become one of Dubai’s favourite events. The annual festival will be held at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre and this year features John Legend, Duran Duran, and Ricky Martin over the three nights. Tickets are still available starting at Dhs 325.
