Ammos
It might be hard to believe, but there was once a time when, if you wanted decent Greek food, you didn’t have too many options.

Now, of course, it’s the complete opposite, but that in itself, while obviously a positive for diners, brings its own challenges for businesses.

With so much competition, what’s the best way of ensuring you stay one step ahead of the curve? Well, in the case of Ammos, its unique location immediately sets it apart. Based at Rixos Premium JBR, you can find Ammos situated right next to the huge pool at Azure Beach, affording guests superb views, not only internally, but looking further out too, with Bluewaters Dubai and Ain Dubai visible in the distance. The stunning setting really cannot be overstated.

Carine
There is a youthful dynamism to Carine, driven by Chef Izu Ani - whose foundation is, fittingly, in classical French cuisine. The Nigerian-born chef earned his stripes at three-Michelin starred Auberge de L’Ill and has already forged an impressive reputation in Dubai, heading up La Petite Maison, La Serre and Izu Brasserie, which opened in City Walk in 2017.

Exciting dishes abound on this menu but there are some definite highlights. Garlic and chilli prawns are taken to another level with a big hit of rosemary and a spicy harissa sauce. It leaves us quickly reaching for more bread and not a drop is left.

The Underground
What kind of venue are we searching for? Just a decent bar with plenty of options in terms of screens, as well as a strong selection of food and drink to satisfy our needs.

The Underground has been a go-to spot for footie fans across Dubai for many years. With a vast bar area, as well as the option for watching the screens outside (although it’s probably a little too hot at this time of year), you can literally take your pick.
