5 alternative experiences at Dubai’s top urban destination this Eid Al-Adha

Tired of the same old weekends staying indoors trying to avoid the sweltering summer sun? Boxpark, the family-friendly urban destination, is the ideal spot to find alternative experiences in Dubai over Eid Al-Adha holiday. There’s fab food, urban adventures, new flicks, and the latest fashionwear all in one space. Here’s the pick of what you can do…

  1. Experience truly unique shopping

Boxpark boasts brilliant stores. Treat yourself to some retail therapy at Urbanist, whose modern interiors and tasteful nods to Arabic design, make for a cool shopping experience. There, you can find the most sought-after international fashion brands as well as sleek homeware, jewellery, art and design pieces.

Don’t stop there. Check out Ghawani, a fashionable trademark company that targets women with traditional Abaya and Sheila. And SGT boutique offers a wide collection of haute couture gowns, whose designs are inspired by mystical Arab charm. The pieces are made from natural fabric and adorned with sparkles and bright colors.

Afterwards, stop in at Chocobon for some luxury chocolate and spoil yourself or make a gift out of the delectable selections on offer.بوكس بارك يقدم خمس تجارب مميزة في عيد الأضحى المبارك

  1. Get stuck into tasty food

Big Smoke Burger has juicy smoked cheeseburgers and incredible poutines, while Logma’s serves up Emirati and Khaleeji cuisine – check out the Machbous, biryani, shawarmas, and huge selection of aromatic rice dishes available with shrimp and chicken.

For a healthier option, pop into Just Salad. This one is ideal for people who want something healthy but delicious. The brand, which started in New York in 2006, focuses on fast service and fresh ingredients.

If you’re in the mood for something local, get yourself over to Love Mhshy, where you can feast on a menu featuring skewers, ‘baby bites’, mini salads, mini sandwiches and stuffed veggies – perfect for sharing with family and friends.

  1. Jump into a 60-minute thrill

The biggest of its kind in the Middle East, Boxpark’s Escape Room is a real-life adventure game designed for small groups. Your goal is simple: you have 60 minutes to open your mind and eyes carefully, work together, crack codes and solve ciphers to escape.

Another way to spend 60 minutes is at Fit Box Gym, which embodies group fitness for individuals. Fit Box believes in the power of coming together to fight for a collective goal, but also celebrates what it means to be unique. Fit Box was created to shake up the stale norms of the group fitness world.

  1. Settle down for magic at the movies

If breaking a sweat in a gym or breaking out of an escape room isn’t your style, then you can kick back and settle down at Boxpark’s Roxy Cinemas. Showing all the latest movies, you can expect a boutique service, plush seating, delicious meals brought to your seat, cosy blankets, and sit-back cushions.

Then, drop by Forever Rose to appreciate the surreal, but Gram-worthy 2D illustrated setting while enjoying signature teas and drinks – all with floral extracts.

  1. Unwind with friends and family

After all that, it will be time to unwind. Where better than Karak Inc? A homegrown, authentic experience, Karak Inc is more than a place for people to pull up or stop by. It is a destination where you can immerse yourself in a unique tea-drinking experience. Karak Inc’s mission is to serve up the best karak in town, for the enthusiasts and the curious. It is an experience, made locally in Dubai from the people that know and love the city, and the karak.
