Downtown Dubai getting a brand-new bar and lounge club
We love any bar that that’s unique, cool and a touch quirky, and if this new bar’s tagline, “Taste Art, Drink Passion, Feel Music” is anything to go by, we’re in for a treat.
New bar and lounge club, Phoenix Social Club, is due to launch in Q2 of this year, bringing unique dining, specially crafted mixed drinks and high-energy jazz to the region. Get those dancing shoes nice and polished.
Set on the first floor at the H Hotel, Sheikh Zayed Road, the new bar’s concept was inspired by the supper clubs, or social clubs as they were known back then, of 1930s and 1940s Los Angeles, Miami and New York. We’re intrigued.
As for its “Taste Art,” Phoenix Social Club will have an internationally-influenced menu. Starters come served on sharing plates, mezze or tapas style, and the best part? The portion size for starters is up to guests.
There will also be a selection of small plates on the “Crudo Menu,” offering Italian and Japanese-inspired fresh raw seafood. Also expect charred skewers, fresh salads and Tandoor baked flatbreads for mains.
Beverages will be the “star attraction," with specialised drinks infused with herbs, spices and fruits. Also expect grape from Italy, France, Spain and Portugal with limited vintages.
As for those who like to groove, there will be high-energy jazz, funk and soul – all remixed and played within the deep house, acid jazz, bossa nova and Afro-Cuban beats genres.
The DJ line-up for its weekly “Signature Nights” include some of the most prominent artists, musicians and producers in the city, while partygoers can also expect international acts and DJs for special editions.
Phoenix Social Club has yet to announce when it will officially open, but we can expect it to open its doors soon enough. Stay tuned for more details.
Dancing to jazzy beats with fruity mixed drink in hand? We can get on board with that.
