Default killing an afternoon in dubai

Hiall,

I have the afternoon off this afternoon as I have a freind visiting, trying to work out what to do, not interested in malls, too hot to go outside, any suggestions?

Thinking the Madinat is a safe bet for a late lunch and a few drinks but does anyone else have any other suggestions that are nice and chilled out?

Cheers

Kittycat
