Recently, Poul has been working a lot, but now he has a couple of days off, so yesterday, we decided to go out for a drink. We went to Shades, which is a roof top bar/pool bar/chill out lounge at the beautiful The Address Hotel in Dubai Marina.
Although the bar is only on the fourth floor, it had a fantastic view of Dubai Marina and the backside of JBR. A former colleague, Jessica, is visiting Dubai this week with her boyfriend David, so we met up with them after dinner yesterday. It is several years since we saw each other last time, so it was really nice to finally get to meet each other again.
There were almost no empty tables at Shades but since the place is located outside, it never felt crowded. The DJ was playing lounge music at a volume, which made it possible to have a conversation without shouting our lungs out and the ambience was really cool and relaxed. I was still affected by the aftermath of Thursday’s night out at Long’s Bar, so I decided on a mocktail evening and had a strawberry milkshake.
This evening, Rikke and I have planned a shopping trip to Dubai Mall. Generally, shopping in Dubai is not particularly cheap compared to Denmark, but most of January, it’s Dubai Shopping Festival, which means crazy sales all over the city and lots of opportunities to spend your dirhams.
