Visit the Reopened Global Village for Season 28

The popular open air spot has been closed for summer and is reopening a week before its usual time, on Wednesday October 18th. Previously the park was closed until the end of October, so this year you’ll get more time to browse the stalls and attractions throughout the winter months. It will be open at 4pm daily with Tuesdays being reserved for ladies and families, and expect big things for their opening event on Wednesday.

Sample BBQ Flavour at Big T’s

If Southern BBQ food is your style you need to check out Big T’s BBQ in Al Quoz. Founded by Palestinian chef Fadel Faour, this hugely popular venue was closed for summer but has reopened for winter – get the “Big Tasty” and other authentic Southern dishes on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays, from midday until 10pm. Located in Al Quoz 4. 

Visit the Ripe Market

Another of the city’s favourite things to do which has reopened for winter, longtime farmer’s market Ripe is back with your favourite artisanal goods, crafts, and new homegrown vendors. There’s nothing better than taking an outdoor stroll on the weekend with your friends around the stalls and picking up some nick-nacks. Catch the first one on Sunday October 14th at Academy Park and every Sunday thereafter. 

Visit Music Mondays at Taverna Greek Kitchen

This lively Greek restaurant in Souk Madinat is hosting live music every Monday from 8pm until midnight during winter. They have some pretty fabulous outdoor spaces that overlook the fountains, as well as authentic Greek food, so this is a great spot for a mid-week dinner or to take visiting family.
