Things to do this weekend

Look no further for special experiences. Here are our best recommendations:

Aprons & Hammers Beach House, Palm West Beach, Jumeirah

An ultra-new look and location is a good enough reason to visit this beachfront property at the new Palm West Beach, Palm Jumeirah. The new Aprons & Hammers Beach House boasts a terrace and private beach. Diners can take a seat and push their toes into the sand for a proper island-like dining experience. New additions to the menu include truffle lobster mac ‘n’ cheese, firecracker prawns, blue crab cakes, and plenty more. And of course, don’t miss the hammertime cake featuring layers of warm walnut brownies sandwiched between bricks of milk and white chocolate ice cream.
