First look: The Eloquent Elephant reveals new terrace

Swanky Business Bay gastropub also has a new vegan menu


Winter has arrived, and swanky Dubai gastropub The Eloquent Elephant has new outdoor terrace to welcome in the days of winter dining.

The popular pub in Taj Dubai – which is a previous winner of our Best Pub Food title at the Time Out Dubai Restaurant Awards – has revealed a swish new look, and we’ve been along to check it out.

And now not only can you dig into your favourite dishes, you can do so with gusto in the great outdoors.

Kitted out with vibrant green furniture, to match the foliage, there are also hanging lights for a cosy feel.

The pub will now be able to seat 130 diners thanks to the expansion. And guests on the terrace will also be able to smoke, as the pub indoors is non-smoking.

The menu has also had a revamp, so expect dishes including the barbecue-glazed Angus short rib – as well as some new vegan options including the Elephant’s Barley Burger, a veggie patty made of barley, carrot and celery, encased in a soft chia seed bun. It’s served with date chutney and sweet potato fries on the side.

However, classic dishes remain, including the Elephant Curry (not with actual big eared creatures, fret not), The Mighty Elephant Burger and the yummy baked s’mores brownie.

We can’t wait to check it out.
Open Sun-Wed 3pm-1am; Thu-Fri noon-2am; Sat noon-1am. Taj Dubai, Business Bay (04 438 3131).
