There are several factors to consider when selecting a bar. Namely atmosphere, price and quality of drinks. Happily, JLT’s newest watering hole can follow through on all of the above.
With modern, industrial décor, Le Petit Belge has a contemporary, clean-cut feel. Blue and red tones add warmth, while TV screens showing all manner of sports add buzz.
When we visit on a weeknight, we’re pleasantly surprised by how busy it is and there’s an upbeat, friendly vibe about the place.
Perched on a bar stool we’re able to soak up the European atmosphere, and have a perfect vantage point from which to peruse a wide range of Belgian hops. A light-up board showcases the varieties on offer, with specials changing frequently.
The bar boasts some other excellent deals too, not least the all-day ladies’ night on Wednesdays, featuring free-flowing drinks and 50 percent off bar bites.
Speaking of which, if you’ve been reading Time Out Dubai of late, you will have seen us raving about the excellent “hoppetisers”, AKA bar snacks.
If you haven’t, we recommend you order a couple of these tasty dishes to accompany your drinks. You won’t be disappointed – especially if you opt for the sweet and meaty lobster and crab rolls or delightfully indulgent cheese croquettes.
With a handful of Belgian-inspired bars already in the city, Le Petit Belge isn’t original in its concept. But it’s exactly what JLT needs.
And so, with all the aforementioned vitals covered, we’re sure that as the weeks progress it will only get busier (and not just because of that lengthy ladies’ night).
The bottom line A fun, friendly Belgian local.
