    The DIFC gastropub is offering deals during Premier League football every Saturday. If you’re wearing your team’s colours you will receive 20 percent off your total bill. Other deals include a burger and beverage for Dhs99 and nachos and two beverages for Dhs120. Prices vary.
    Timings: Noon-1am

Recently revamped, The Gramercy has had a makeover that relocates it from a 1920s New York speakeasy to an Art Deco Parisian bar. Still in place are the high ceilings, but the dark panels and huge chandeliers have been replaced with bare light bulbs, bigger windows and white wall tiles. Food is still rooted in the gastro pub style though now with a more British feel. You'll find proper fish and chips with mushy peas here, as well as a brilliant burgers. Starters and light bites include juicy prawns and fishcakes while there's an extensive selection of mixed beverages and craft hops from around the world. As you would expect from a venue of this kind in DIFC, it isn't a budget option, but the food represents good value for money. There's a good atmosphere after-work and there are regular live music nights. The Gramercy

    We opted for the Jazz Brunch.. What a mistake! Gramercy is in fact a bar. Period. Not a resyaurant. Not a lounge. 'Brunch' comprised of up to four courses from an unimaginatiive and limited menu. All courses had to be selected on arrival!?!. Food was bland at best. Draft beer was extra. Water was extra...a whopping 15 dhs a bottle for local product. (Isn't that illegal?!)....in a city that boasts so many fantastic venues, it will be a cold day in Dubai before we return.I would suggest the management take a look around also.....

    Ok Here's the thing, I had bought a couple of vouchers on Groupon Dubai to dine at this restaurant. With just 2 days left for it to expire, I called up the restaurant to make a booking for a table for 4 and the voucher clearly stated "1 groupon per 2 people". As 2 of my friends might not make it for some reason, I called up the restaurant to make sure we can use both the vouchers (worth Dhs.200 each) by just 2 people dining and I was told yes.
    We arrived at the restaurant and one of the servers took us to the table.
    I hand over the vouchers and ask the server "Can both of use these Groupon vouchers worth Dhs.400) and we got the green light, so we order our food from the menu (2 drinks, 2 starters and 2 maincourses which were more than Dhs. 530 but we didnt mind paying the difference) but then 10 minutes later a waitress comes over to our table and says we can only use one voucher of Dhs. 200 worth and the balance had to be paid by us.
    I had demanded to speak to the manager and who turned out to be the server we were served by and spoken with in details.
    The lame excuses that we got them not accepting both vouchers was just unbelievable. I had decided to cancel the whole order and make a new one based on one voucher amount.

    Now don't get me wrong I have been to restaurant before enjoyed my time there and that is the reason i bought the vouchers in the first place so wold mind paying for the whole meal in cash either but it was just the way situation was dealt with by the manager. We were almost ready to pay for our amount which was Dhs. 238 when our 2 friends called to say they are joining us after all.
    They came ordered drinks and food and we asked for the bill.
    2 starters and 2 maincourse along with 6 drinks in one single bill. So we ended up using both vouchers on the same bill anyways. Correct em if i'm wrong but what was the big deal?
    The Managers service attitude, the way he dealt with us totally turn of off even though the food was delicious.
    I would think twice about spending my money at a place like this and will make sure my family and friends will never give them a dime for their business.
    Its a shame our experience had to end this way.

    Went for a client dinner, and was amazed at the wine list - the staff were very knowledgeable and made a great job of serving a large crowd of us - we were served on time and the food was wonderful.

    The jazz music was loud enough without being too loud and the staff were friendly and accommodating. It was a thoroughly enjoyable evening and I will definitely be going back.
