Buenas noticias, fans of all things Cuba, Havana Social Club has now opened its doors Bluewaters Dubai, and it’s bringing some smooth 1920s Havana vibes with it.
Set in Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai, the venue will feature its signature Cuban rolls collection, a selection of Caribbean mixed drinks and, of course, Latino beats.
The new hotspot is now open and delivers a host of bar bites to go along with its Cuban-inspired signature mixed drinks.
With the menu split into three sections, guests can tuck into the “crujiente” (crunchy) menu featuring yucca chips and plantain chips, both served with Havana secret sauce and honey-roast pepper dip.
There’s also the “manos” (hands) section, including Cuban ceviche with sea bass, gambas, habanero chili, cucumber and cuban guacamole; the pavo cubano with turkey, mortadella, swiss cheese, pickled gherkins and grained mustard sauce; along with wagyu beef chorizo sliders with a beef chorizo patty, queso de joya, Cuban guacamole, sambal sauce and Caribbean slaw.
Finally, those with a sweet tooth can check out the “dulce” (sweet) menu, which includes arroz con leche with chia seed, mango gel and coriander; frozen caramel banana pops; the tropical fruit empanada with pineapple, mango, clove and cinnamon compote; along with the smoked coconut creme natillas featuring sesame tuile, avocado chili sorbet.
The bar transforms at night, filled with chilled Latin tunes, promising to take guests back to “an era of the Havana Cabaret Club.” We’re intrigued.
The venue is open Mondays to Saturdays from 1pm until 1am.
The new spot will eventually have a number of weekly events and promotions, so watch this site for further updates.
There’s a host of restaurants that have opened up this year, including modern Japanese rooftop restaurant Paru, with views across to both JBR and the Palm.
There’s also The London Project right at the foot of world’s largest ferris wheel, which now has London Slide, featuring a ‘funky feast’ of mini burgers and baos.
Don’t forget your dance shoes.
Open Mon-Sat 1pm-1am. Caesars Bluewaters Dubai, Bluewaters, www.caesars.com/dubai (04 556 6466).
