Dubai's Loca 2.0 Mexican restaurant closes down

There’s sad news for fans of tacos and guacamole – Loca 2.0 in Souk Al Bahar has closed its doors.

The younger sibling of the popular Mexican restaurant Loca at Dubai Marine Beach Resort & Spa in Jumeirah, Loca 2.0 opened in December 2015 in Souk Al Bahar, boasting top views of the Burj Khalifa.

"It is with a heavy heart that we confirm Loca Souk al Bahar has closed its doors,” a spokesman told Time Out Dubai. “However Loca Dubai Marine Resort & Spa and Loca The Galleria on Al Maryah Island are still pumping to satisfy your guacamole cravings. And we just launched Loca Lito Mexican food truck at La Mer.”

So, fret not, you can still get guac made tableside when you need it.

Loca 2.0 is the second popular Dubai restaurant we’ve said goodbye to recently.

Asian restaurant China Grill closed its doors last week (Tuesday February 27) to make way for brand-new restaurant and bar Asia de Cuba.

The Chino Latino restaurant Asia de Cuba already has successful branches in Abu Dhabi, New York and London. It will be opening its doors in Dubai Marina tomorrow (Tuesday March 6) in the space that previously housed China Grill in The Westin Mina Seyahi Beach Resort and Marina.

The trendy new bar and restaurant promises a “carnival-like atmosphere”, so expect a party vibe.
