A host of varied events in Dubai this weekend is set to fill the diaries of the cultural aficionado.

Indulge in a trio of cultural experiences this weekend. From a restaurant high in the sky to a night of physical relaxation and a thought-provoking conceptual art exhibition, these are the places to be and be seen this weekend.

After Denudation art exhibition in Beirut

Ayyam Gallery Beirut is hosting an exhibition by British-Iraqi artist Athier Mousawi, titled After Denudation. Inspired by nature's evolution in light of city expansions, Mousawi highlights "the organic versus the mechanical" in his signature abstract and colourful paintings, with a keen focus on sand and a decaying urban jungle.

After Denudation will run April 6 until May 27 at Ayyam Gallery, Beirut. 

New menus at At.mosphere, Burj Khalifa

At.mosphere turns six and to mark the occasion, Executive Chef Christopher Graham curates a special six-course menu where he juxtaposes unlikely flavours to create a single indulgent dish. Taking the finest ingredients from both land and sea, expect to taste the unique flavours of dishes such as wild halibut with white truffle and foie gras, chicken wings and risotto packed with cepe and chestnut as well as chocolate molleux with parsnip ice cream.
