Hidden Gems in Dubai | Date Ideas

Greek Island Vibes

Shimmers, on the beach - a super low-key spot in Dubai on Madinat Jumeirah’s private beach. You can enjoy authentic Greek food in a complete casual yet romantic setting with a beautiful view of Burj Al Arab. They have a compact menu and less quantity so you may have to order a bit more than the usual but so worth it! The ambiance of this place is our absolute favorite, perfect if you’re looking to have a relaxed time outdoors in the city.

Get that London Feel

Citywalk Phase 2 - Not a "hidden" spot in Dubai but this place is just SO beautiful and definitely a perfect date night spot! Whether you're a foodie, an adventurous freak, or a shopaholic, citywalk has you all covered. For food, we love places like Sugar Factory, Farzi café, and Mitts & Trays, and of course the food trucks and stalls every few steps. For the adventurous one who want to explore, they have Hubzero and Green planet - so much fun! Other than that, citywalk 2 has a cinema, plenty of shops, and things to explore.

Party Spot for Sundowners

Nikki Beach Dubai - if you’re looking to party it up in Dubai, Nikki Beach is a pretty lit spot. Even though it may seem like it’s more of a group vibe it’s still a couple thing too. They have a different event almost everyday, trumpets, music and good food. From an oversized pool to VIP cabanas, this place is the ultimate pool party vibe in the city! Oh and if you’re a sushi lover, they offer the best sushi platters & boats .

Your Own Private Pool Villa

Desert Palm Per Aquum - another low-key spot in Dubai which is a must visit!!! A staycation at this place could definitely be one of the most romantic and adventurous things to do with your partner. Adventurous because of all the retreat experiences the hotel has to offer (horse riding, sports, etc). They have a variety of different packages & suites to choose from. You can get a villa with your own private pool - enjoy a cute midnight swim or even book a luxurious suite facing the entire estate.

Love Lock Tings

Moylos Burgers - truly a hidden gem in Dubai located on Jumeira Beach Road. It's a super small place but still cute for a date spot. They have some amazing burger options and you can even stack them if you like. If you're a burger lover looking for a casual yet romantic spot which is affordable at the same time, then Moylos is for you! And the best part is that they have a love lock cage on which you can put your own locks, I don't think there's any other place like this in Dubai.
