Minf Leaf of London has been going about its business in a cool, calm and collected manner since opening last year. While it has a swanky interior, views of the Burj Khalifa and serious fine dining going on, it has not crowed about how good it is, instead letting word of mouth do the talking for it.
We’re fans of the restaurant, and the bar area is almost always buzzing, especially at the weekend. Now, Mint Leaf’s powers-that-be have launched a third area, M Lounge. Previously the venue’s private dining room, it’s now a cool space filled with sofas and low tables, creating a laid-back atmosphere.
The décor is in keeping with the rest of the venue, but it has a more chilled-out vibe than the bar. Food is also served here, with most of the dishes being small, tapas-style sharing plates, and signature, inventive mixed drinks are available.
What you will also get is a side order of live music three nights a week, a Monday ladies’ night and a daily happy hour (5pm to 8pm). We love the vibe on our visit, when the band provides great entertainment to go along with the top drinks selections.
It’s a cracking new place to enjoy the views of Dubai’s skyline, too.
The bottom line Bridges the gap between bar and restaurant with aplomb.
