Swanky pop-up garden bar coming to Dubai’s JBR

The Garden will serve up fresh grub, live jazz and an urban oasis through winter

Following on from the massively popular outdoor cinema run on the lawn of Le Royal Méridien Beach Resort & Spa in JBR in late 2017, DXBExperiments is back with the second of its three special winter events.

This time, it’s called The Garden, and it will again be hosted on the hotel’s huge lawn, running between February and April for three of the winter season’s most enjoyable months.

Kicking off on Tuesday February 6, it’s based largely around what the organisers are calling a “lush urban oasis”, where you can expect to find tonnes of plants, trees, foliage, herbs and all that – including a 100-year-old olive tree, chilli trees, guava, mandarin and lemon trees as well.

Opening for three months and open three nights a week inside that, each night will bring something different.

Tuesdays are dubbed “The Potting Shed” where terracotta pots filled with proper ploughman’s ingredients are available for Dhs90 per pot – think breads, cheeses, pickles and bottles of mixed drink. It’s all very picnicky.

Wednesdays will be serving up some live jazz (more on that coming soon), with a band playing on stage and a range of random activities being put on throughout the night. Finally, Thursdays will be all about the alternative, with a full set agenda of entertainment and games coming up and due to be announced soon. So watch this space.

Best of all, entry is free. Get down there, it starts on Wednesday February 6, open from 6pm until 11pm each night.
Free entry. Tue-Thu 6pm-11pm. Until April 27. Le Royal Méridien Beach Resort & Spa, JBR, www.facebook.com/DXBExperiements.
