Top drinking places that are fresh on the Dubai scene
Solo Bistronomia, Raffles Dubai
Following the closure of Raffles Dubai’s long-standing steakhouse Fire&Ice, this space has had a makeover and emerged as Italian restaurant and grape bar Solo Bistronomia & Vinobar. The restaurant itself is huge. A vast, cavernous, high-ceilinged, multi-functional space, all covered in exposed russet-coloured bricks. The food here is a two-tier affair – bar snacks (restaurant equivalents of street food) and deli classics (antipasti, charcuterie and so on) in the bar area.
Open daily noon-3pm, 7pm-11pm. Raffles Dubai, Oud Metha (04 370 8999).
