New Belgium craze invades Dubai

Three new Belgium venues launched in recent weeks – and where next?

The Knowledge

Have you noticed the recent incursion of Belgium into Dubai?

The warning signs came weeks ago, when over summer the former site of the Old Vic, in the Ramada Hotel Dubai, was overrun and transformed into the pleasant Lucien Belgium Café.

Then last month Bapas opened in The H Hotel – a concept launched by two Belgium brothers which offers, originally enough, a Belgium take on tapas (get the name now?).

And now this week the Habtoor Grand’s Horizon Lounge is re-launching with a new Belgium hops-branded garden, with an opening party on Thursday October 10.

We can’t say we’re complaining about being overrun by mussels and quality hops, but tell us – where will the Belgium take next?
