One of the hottest venues to open so far in 2014, Cargo has brought a hint of Hoxton cool to the UAE and become one of the most talked-about venues of Dubai Marina. Mixing an industrial East London edge with a smidge of high-end class, it’s a venue which wouldn’t feel out of place in Europe, but bears all the convenient hallmarks (table service!) of a chic Dubai lounge. High tables and stools inside make this feel more alive and sociable than most venues, and although the wide terrace will undoubtedly be rammed through the winter, it’s the beautifully designed interior – featuring marble-topped tables, wooden floorboards and an arty, warehouse vibe – which impress most. If you’re yet to visit, it’s high time.
