Want to be part of the Dubai ‘it’ crowd? Read on for our list of the places to see and be seen.
A restaurant for every occasion
Dubai is a hub for high-end, Michelin star, award-winning restaurants. This means that there is a variety of places you can go that will suit every palate. One place to be seen and popular with celebrities is the Pierchic restaurant. Set on a bedecked pier jutting out into the Arabian Gulf, Pierchic offers some of Dubai’s finest seafood, and has previously been recognized as Time Out Dubai’s Best Seafood Restaurant.
7* indulgence for new clients (or dates!)
Consider the scene – you’ve landed a coveted client meeting, or first-date, and seriously need a venue to impress. Enter: The Burj Al Arab the most expensive luxury hotel in the world. The Burj Al Arab is also the perfect place for business meetings. You can wine and dine clients at the Al Mahara restaurant situated within the Hotel where all tables have a floor to ceiling view of colourful aquatic creatures.
(If you are on a first date this will be a perfect ice breaker!)

Place your bets!
