IN­DOOR HIDE­OUTS

Friday - - Fashion -

Cool, dark, with tons of fod­der for the imag­i­na­tion and pop­corn – movie the­atres are the ul­ti­mate bolt­hole to es­cape from the swel­ter­ing re­al­ity of sum­mer heat. The rise in mer­cury has prompted bou­tique cinema con­cept Roxy Cin­e­mas ,to drop the prices of their pre­mium seats, which means you can en­joy movies in the luxe Di­rec­tor’s Lounge – think mar­ble coun­ters, re­clin­ing leather chairs and a but­ler on call – for Dh99; visit therox­ycin­e­mas.com.

To re­ally chill out, Ski Dubai’s snowy slopes are a freezing respite and the spe­cial UAE res­i­dents’ of­fer lets you ex­pe­ri­ence chair­lift rides, a spin on the snow bul­lets and pen­guin en­coun­ters for dis­counted rates. Show your Emi­rates ID and you’ll get a 20 per cent dis­count on the Po­lar (Dh275), Po­lar Ex­press (Dh350) and Ski Dubai Ex­pe­ri­ence Passes (Dh510). Visit the­p­lay­ma­nia.com.

Once the sun goes down, of­fers and deals pop up across 11 out­lets at the Dubai De­sign District (d3) – part of their new Live@5 pro­mo­tion. From 5-8pm, ev­ery Sun­day to Thurs­day, the trendy de­sign hub’s vis­i­tors can en­joy buy-one-get-one-free of­fers at din­ing venues in­clud­ing Chez Charles and Molecule (be­low), which will also host DJ bat­tles on Wed­nes­day. There’s dis­counts be­ing dealt out at re­tail out­lets, too – FMBI is giv­ing 15 per cent dis­counts on hand­crafted rugs and car­pets and menswear store Closet Case will have a 10 per cent dis­count across the 100 or so brands they stock. Frame and Yui, the Ja­panese life­style cul­ture shop with a ra­men and gy­oza restau­rant (noo­dles are made in-house by the Ja­panese chef!), is giv­ing a 15 per cent off ev­ery­thing.

Want more shop­ping but left jaded by the malls? The Sum­mer Bazaar is on at the Dubai World Trade Cen­tre un­til Septem­ber 4 and pro­vides the perks of shop­ping with­out the has­sles of a mall. Rum­mage through hand­i­crafts, cos­met­ics, per­fumes, home ap­pli­ances, toys and ac­ces­sories from Greece, Turkey, Italy, Malaysia, Thai­land, Pak­istan, UAE, Ye­men and other coun­tries. From 3-11pm.
