Now that we’re well in 2018, it’s time to start planning your holidays for the year. While the idea of heading to the Mediterranean for a bit of R&R might well appeal, you could easily save some cash on flights and accommodation by checking out Dubai’s very own Spanish restaurant, España.
Filling something of a niche in this part of the world, España brings to Dubai the exciting and vibrant nightlife scene of Madrid, Barcelona, Marbella, Ibiza and Granada all in one brilliant bar and restaurant.
Expect top bites from around Spain and the Med, hand-made Spanish red grape mixed drink and an eclectic range of beverages and mixed drinks put together by one of the bar’s seven expert mixologists who are there to tailor the perfect drink for your night.
If you’re in the mood for a boogie, resident DJs will provide the soundtrack to your night with some chilled Ibiza beats – or one of the bar’s many different theme nights. It’s not just about replicating the vibes of the world’s party capital, there are ’80s and ’90s nights, salsa evenings, live music and even stand-up comedy.
Instead, if you’re feeling a bit peckish, grab a bite off the tip top tapas menu. Sample a range of delicacies, including big, plump garlic shrimps in home-made garlic sauce, traditional Spanish paella and both classic and contemporary tapas dishes.
See, you don’t need a plane ticket to travel to Spain this year – the best of Spanish nightlife is right here in Dubai, just head to España, at the Jumeirah Creekside Hotel in Garhoud.
Open daily 4pm-3am. Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, Garhoud (056 134 0633).
