Allow your imagination to run wild at Splatter Rooms
The UAE capital has welcomed a thrilling new art experience in the form of Splatter Rooms. Here, guests can get messy and unleash their creative streak onto a blank canvas. Splatter, throw, mix and explore all the paints and materials on offer during action-packed sessions that result in a personal work of art to take home. Suitable for adults and children, all supplies, disposable clothing and canvases are included in every experience. AED 139 per person, including all supplies needed.
Dine on exquisite Italian food at Emirates Palace
The newly-opened Talea allows diners to enjoy a highly curated selection of seasonal and authentic Italian dishes in an elegant yet lively setting. Talea’s menu draws on two Michelin starred chef Antonio Guida’s distinctive culinary style to create ‘Cucina di Famiglia’, or family-style cooking. From handmade ravioli, authentic spaghetti alla carbonara and artisanal pizza to osso buco and vitello tonnato (a chilled veal dish that forms an indispensable part of the Assumption Day feast in Milan), the menu fuses traditional techniques with an innovative edge, which is essentially the signature of Guida.

Bowl and dine at Yas Bay
Inspired by the streets of the Big Apple, Central has opened its doors at Yas Bay. A restaurant, bar and family entertainment hub with torn-away walls and handcrafted graffiti, this neon joint offers a menu of burgers, shakes and beverages. Positioned as the younger sibling of Lock, Stock & Barrel, Central’s bowling alley flips at midnight to service the party crowd of its big brother. You heard right – Lock, Stock & Barrel patrons can put their hand-eye coordination to the test as the Central Bowling alley links the two venues together!
