The Shoreditch

An edgy, hipster-inspired bar in New Dubai

Time Out Says

The ears of Dubai’s edgy, hipster masses pricked up when it was announced that alternative club Industrial Avenue was opening an East London-themed hangout earlier this year. Promising street vibes from the trendiest quarter of the UK capital, The Shoreditch, within the club is, to its credit,  the antithesis of many a bar around the city.

Bare wood floor, upturned oil barrels and the club’s disturbingly authentic toilet lobby (you literally enter a, thankfully disused, bathroom) all give this place a rough and ready vibe that is equal parts contrived and equally jaded with the city’s glamorous nightlife scene. No sparklers in bottles here or roped off areas are found here.

In fact, arrive in shoes and you’ll instantly feel overdressed – this place is so casual that you’ll find hops pongs and (weirdly) shuffleboard tables around the corner, where you’ll also find some decent views out over Dubai Marina. It’s all very dark and moody, but the moodiness is cut short when, despite only opening at 9pm, our drinks are interrupted at 11pm by a bouncer abruptly moving everyone into Industrial Avenue.

It’s a cool and trendy hangout, if only for the ten hours a week it’s open for.
