The recently revamped Downtown Toko is a slick pick for a midweek drink.
It has its very own entrance from the Boulevard, funky, urban interiors, a decent menu of Japanese food and a DJ who provides cool house beats into the small hours.
It’s a great spot to head to for a post-work debrief with colleagues or to catch up with the gals, thanks to its generous ladies’ night, which offers a free-flow of house beverages every Wednesday from 7pm to 9.30pm, as well as that full menu of enticing meals. It gets super-busy, though, so if deep conversation is on your agenda, look elsewhere.
Staff keep their cool at the busiest of times and don’t let the pressures of the evening get to them.
Its after-opera deal, starring a special set menu on show nights for Dhs190 from 9pm to 11.30pm, means the bar draws a classy crowd, so dress up if you’re heading out here.
If you’re looking for an elegant bar and restaurant to mix up your midweek routine, with decent dishes for dinner and drinks served swiftly, book your table now.
The bottom line Break up the week with a lively night out here.
