Reviewed: Asia De Cuba
Not quite equal, but still, free drinks for gents for two full hours every Tuesday evening, while ladies still get to sip on their favourite beverage until closing. But with Asia De Cuba offering everyone 50 percent off on the food bill too, it’s worth heading over to after work for that middle of the week treat.
Early, we walk through an already bustling restaurant, not being surprised as free drinks will make all of our time management impeccable. Colourful Cuban poster art is plastered on pillars, a contrast against the crisp white tablecloths and plush pastel green furnishings. Skipping the restaurant and heading straight to the outside bar we find a sofa, watching the terrace fill up.
A selection of drinks are on offer this evening, house beverages, mixed drinks and bubbles. You might even be in for some unexpected games such as musical chairs when the rain descends.
Starting off quietly, music is soon pumped loudly from speakers in each corner, making it hard to have a conversation with the person sitting next to you. Not an issue if you have some lungs on you – our guests certainly managed. The food menu is small bar snacks, but classics like chicken skewers and adventurous shrimp churros are available to choose among other dishes.
It’s about time more nights started popping up for the gents of Dubai. This one will could certainly start your weekend early.
