A different kind of {ladies’ night}

We are all more than familiar with Tuesday ladies’ nights in Dubai, which offer a great way to have a night out on the town with the girls to unwind. But if you’re tired of the party scene, and can’t bear the idea of glamming up again mid-week then why not try something a little different to have some quality time with your friends that doesn’t include hitting the town?

For a different kind of ladies’ night, here are a few of the women only classes that are on offer from our providers. Sorry boys, you’re going to have to sit these out!

Ladies Golf
Ladies Golf Montgomerie The Curve

In a city like Dubai it’s a shame not to know how to play golf when we are blessed with some of the most amazing courses in the world. Learn the basics, or improve your game with The Academy by Troon Golf at The Montgomerie this December. With morning and evening sessions available on multiple days of the week, there’s something suitable for everyone. Careful, you might get so good your husband might get a little jealous!

Pole Fitness
Pole Fitness Capella Club The Curve

In actuality pole fitness not only helps women rediscover their femininity, but it is also actually an intense workout that tones muscles that you never knew even existed! As this is a women only class, you can twirl around the pole in comfort and develop a killer bod in a fun, private way. The more girlfriends you bring, the more fun it is! Tip: These beginner classes are very popular so pre-booking is  a must.

{Craft Land} joins The Curve!

Crafting and DIY projects have taken the UAE by storm these last few years. With more focus on handmade items with craft fairs and exhibitions like ARTE and The Ripe Market, residents have begun to look for ways to make things themselves too.


That’s why we’re so excited to grow our  family of crafting partners even further with the addition of Craft Land. For those of you who are already crafters, you will need no explanation as to what Craft Land is. And for those who don’t, well let’s just say walking around in this store in Town Centre, Jumeirah will definitely give you the crafting bug! Offering supplies and classes for hobbies like knitting, quilting, sewing, and crocheting, Craft Land is definitely a destination to put on your list if you’re looking to pick up something creative to try.
