Last Thursday we were treated to a culinary and visual treat at newly opened Maison Rouge in Conrad Dubai. As the name suggests, the restaurant cum bar is luxuriously plush in vivid tones of red. Everything looks so theatrical even before the show begins!

We arrived a little before 9, and were ushered in with peppy, upbeat tunes by the live DJ. A well-stocked open bar adds to the ambiance, and you can also get a glimpse of the open-fire kitchen where a lineup of international delicacies are assembled together. 

Hooray its Thursday! The weekend is finally here. Looking for dining options tonight? If you are a true-blue seafood fan, I would highly recommend the Seafood Night at Ballaro, the Italian fine-dining restaurant at Conrad Hotel (Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai).

The expansive buffet has you covered with all things seafood, with a wide variety of world cuisines to boot. From sushi to fish & chips, they have something here for even the most discerning diner.

Last Thursday, right after an entire work week that felt like forever, I headed off to Conrad Dubai to try out the much-coveted Intraceuticals Rejuvenate Facial.

I usually take good care of my skin, but the past week has been wearing me down (think extra cups of coffee, under 5 hours of sleep and not drinking enough water). The lackluster reflected on my face, and I was relying on this session to make me look and feel more ‘alive’ for the impending weekend.
