It's another long weekend and Buro 24/7 Middle East has the top spots to truly make it a December to remember.

December serves up another long weekend and the cultural feast in the UAE continues as a high-octane concert, a delectable brunch and an art exhibition awaits the cultural connoisseur. These are the places you absolutely need to be at these coming few days...

Experience directional DJs at Zero Gravity

It's the 12-hour party of the month as superstar DJs Sam Feldt, Pete Tong and Mike Mago serve up back-to-back thumping sets that speak volumes to the house of dance music.

Brunch at a French culinary institution

Popular French restaurant La Cantine du Fauborg has launched its new brunch menu named Reveil. True to its title (reveil means awakening or alarm clock in French), the fine dining hot spot will be transformed into an intimate bedroom setting where you can indulge in fine dining gastronomy — think signature pastries to mains and sweets, including their famous Eton Mess.

Solo photo exhibition at Custot Gallery Dubai

Head to Al Serkal Avenue for a thought-provoking photo exhibition by renowned artistic photographer Nick Brandt. Titled Inherit the Dust, the black and white images address the issue of urban development and how it affects the natural environment. Printing images of animals in actual sizes, Brandt cleverly juxtaposes his prints in urban areas, sharing a world where habitats may no longer exist if humans continue to relentlessly urbanise without limits.
