The top lunch deals for gents looking to make top business deals
Your guide to some of the more sophisticated gentleman’s nights out in the emirate
It’s the end of the week (or the start — we don’t judge), your stocks are doing well, your fantasy football team’s scoring big numbers, that beautiful new jacket you bought recently is crying out for a test run. And best of all, you have the evening off from the misses.
You fancy an evening with the boys, but Barasti is out of the question (because it is, as it’s more apt moniker suggests, Bar Nasty) and McGettigans gets way too rowdy… So here’s where we step in. This is why you are the Debonair man, and why you find yourself reading this right now.
Pull on your sports jacket, and grab the boys. Here’s our selection of the finest gentleman’s bars in Dubai for an evening of class, well-mixed drinks and an elevated sense of style that suits your own dapper elegance.
Himsville at Oeno, Westin, Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Spa
Oeno’s approach to a gent’s night on Thursdays between 8 and 11 is no-nonsense and hits all the right spots. An expansive selection of wines — a lot of which decorate the tall walls from floor to ceiling — and an equally expansive setting across two floors, it’s got the right balance of a lively atmosphere and the sort of refinement you want to commence an evening with the chaps.
Code of London
Code of London
You have to frequent this place if you consider yourself a true gent. And often. Live jazz. The sort of darkened, hushed and downbeat vibe synonymous with the most famous jazz clubs: Q’s has the décor and the atmosphere absolutely spot on. New acts are always coming out to perform — from sultry jazz to lively, floor filling sets. It’s the sort of place Dubai has been crying out for, for years. And with an exhaustive list of cocktails prepared and delivered with pitch perfect aplomb, it’s got to be at the top of any gent’s night out list. There’s no set day for a “gent’s night” at Q’s. Just get yourself booked in, sit back, sip away and enjoy all that jazz.
Every Tuesday Weslodge Saloon throws open its signature yellow doors for its ‘Two for the Boys’ offer. Gents are treated to two house beverages on arrival and 50 per cent off any main course from the Canadian inspired menu.
Located on the 68th floor of one of the world’s tallest hotel, Weslodge Saloon offers the best panoramic views of Dubai’s stunning skyline and the iconic Burj Khalifa. The extremely popular venue is a modern interpretation of the classic American saloon and boasts an award-winning food program, a stylish dining room and a buzzing cocktail bar.
Beef Bar, DIFC
Excellent steak. An ambience (pre-live music) and noise level just below an audible chatter. Superb attention top detail. And a meat-adorned entrance that literally opens your jaw in a delicious meaty wonder as you walk in. And to cap it all off, it’s another jazz number (you will notice a theme, here). Every Wednesday from 9pm there’s live jazz. Oh yes. Pair that with the black truffle porcini mushrooms or Kobe beef shawarma and you’re onto a winner.
