Looking for a new venue to check out? Cool new bar and restaurant District is opening tomorrow (Thursday May 2) and it’s looking super-cool.

The new bar is in the space that formerly held nightclub Inner City Zoo at Rixos Premium Dubai on JBR. And Time Out Dubai’s been along to check it out.

District comes from the team behind award-winning venues STK and Lock, Stock & Barrel, and it’s promising live music, mixed drinks and more.

There’s a split-level raised area with low-slung seating and sofas and a bite to eat, while an outdoor terrace will offer up some big views of the Arabian Gulf, Bluewaters Dubai and Ain Dubai. In the bar area, there’ll be high tables and benches viewing the stage area, which is a decent size.

There’ll also be a rotating menu of Mediterranean food, so you can dine as well. District will be open in the day, too, so you can head along for lunch, and there will also be a brunch, ladies’ night and more launching later in the summer.

It's one of several new bars in the area, including Quench, at the Sofitel Dubai Jumeirah Beach, which features open mic nights and live sport. And Girders Garden is going to be replaced by a new sports bar in the not-too-distant future, Offside, too.
Open Sun-Tue noon-1am, Wed noon-2am, Thu noon-3am, Fri 10am-3am, Sat 10am-1am. Rixos Premium Dubai, JBR (04 394 1832).
