Highly Commended Best Bar Food 2 Comments
Okay, we admit it – we’re slightly smitten with Vintage. Stationed inside antiquated Wafi’s tacky pyramids, it’s perhaps the last place you’d expect to find a traditional grape-based watering hole. But, perhaps just because it has been there that long, Vintage has most definitely got it right. In terms of decor, it blends sparks of style with the homely feel of a front room; think sofas and a fireplace. On some nights there’s live gypsy jazz and the impeccably dressed waiters know what they’re talking about in the grape stakes – something more novel than it should be in Dubai. And the food, thankfully, is a delight. Keeping things simple and rustic, there are fine platters of cheese and cured meats on offer, as well as a selection of tapas-style sharing dishes made to complement a glass of grape. Mains have a strong emphasis on pastry, with great pies and savoury tarts. All in all, we’re sold.
Open Fri-Wed 6pm-1am; Thu 4pm-2am. Wafi, Oud Metha, www.wafi.com (04 324 4100).
