Time Out Says

There’s a gentleman’s club air about this sophisticated lounge, with its dark oak flooring and wingback armchairs. That’s not to say the clientele is made up of mustachioed men in their 50s and up, but rather couples and business acquaintances quietly conversing, with Sinatra playing in the background.

The drinks list includes a broad selection of craft house beverages and mixed drinks, and a price tag to match, thanks to the bar’s five-star location.

It’s worth asking the waiters to talk you through the menu, as all drinks have been carefully hand-picked and some include an intriguing backstory.

Even the so-called bar bites are refined, including steak tartare, foie gras sliders and smoked salmon.

For a more laid-back experience, head outdoors, which offers views of the landscaped gardens and a sea breeze to enjoy during Dubai’s idyllic winter months.

But this venue’s main sell is its cultured but unassuming interiors and aura, a chance to put oneself in the shoes of Mad Men’s Don Draper.

The Bottom Line

This is a classy, calm spot perfect for a quiet catch-up or more formal business meeting.
