Time Out Says

This Canadian export may be more of a hipster hangout back in its home country, but that doesn’t quite fit the profile at its branch in Dubai. This is one for the classy bunch of the city. Not only does it boast thrilling views of Sheikh Zayed Road and Business Bay from its 68th floor location, as well as classic leather sofas standing toe-to-toe with deep-set comfy chairs, it also offers some top-notch dishes. The cherry on top? An assortment of brilliant mixed drinks to choose and sip on.

Lined with saloon-style animal heads and old-looking paintings of English aristocrats (why not?), Weslodge certainly has a quirky appeal and stands out among other venues in Business Bay.

Coupled with the striking night-time glow of the city, the bar feels suitably swish. Oddly, though, the bar area doesn’t take full advantage of the towering views from its sky-high vantage point, with booths beside windows facing away from them.

Weslodge boasts some fine deals, too.

Men are in luck as every Tuesday at its gents’ night, while ladies get a deal every Wednesday. On these nights you’ll get two free drinks, but the bigger offer lies in the 50 percent off all mains, and that’s where this deal really delivers.

We recommend the Southern-fried chicken – each satisfying crunch is sweet with hot-sauce infused honey, and goes perfectly with a bottle of hops.

Throw in its two-for-one happy hour for all mixed drinks on weekdays, and it makes for a decent value, swish post-work watering hole.

Now approaching four years in Dubai, Weslodge still stands tall – quite literally. Stay classy (with a dash of quirkiness).
