Axe House fans, we have some good news. The JLT favourite, which closed its doors September having only replaced Cocktail Kitchen a year prior, has been replaced by an urban British-themed gastropub – and it looks pretty familiar.
Hoxton Bar & Urban Eatery is open each day from noon until 2am, and it appears to have kept a lot of the original graffitied interiors that we know and love.
Images show that familiar neon red lighting as well as the pool and ping-pong tables in 'The Den', which is bound to keep fans of the original Axe House happy.
The bar is promising "British flavour" from its base in the Armada BlueBay Hotel, with a weekly set menu for Dhs125.
We're waiting for more details on this exciting new launch – and we'll keep you up to date as soon as we've got them.
Fingers crossed those halloumi fries have made the transition, too.
Open daily noon-2am. Armada BlueBay Hotel, Cluster P, JLT (04 395 8888).
