- A year and three months after its launch, this weekly local music night has gathered a decent audience of up-for-it fans. Despite its name, Metal Asylum has moved away from its guitar-thrashing origins and now offers spots to all kinds of local acts, from hard-rock bands to punk and even pop-rock outfits. It also hosts international acts on occasion, and two such bands will play next month: April 2 sees Iranian death metal band Arsames up on stage, while Indian rockers Evergreen (you may have seen them at Dubai SoundCity) will play on April 9. This week's gig will feature a series of local bands, plus a round of rock and metal music from resident DJ Sister Rock. A good alternative to Dubai's garish glitz, the Capitol is a pleasantly basic affair with reasonably sized standard rooms boasting huge beds but banal views of built-up Satwa. Suites are large and welcoming, with a well-decorated living space, and can be extended through the use of an adjoining twin room. Should the mood take you, you can request one of three masseuses to perform treatments in your room. The hotel is situated close to both Satwa's bustling streets and the beach, and nothing is more than a short taxi ride away. As such it remains a popular choice for leisure travellers from Eastern Europe, the Gulf States, China and India, as well as more regular business guests.
