6 places to eat and drink in Dubai this week



Ten Street
This brand new “late night party spot” in JBR stays true to Dubai’s “something for everyone” promise. It’s open until 3am every night with resident DJs pumping out ‘70s, ‘80s and ‘90s hits, and occasionally screening sporting events, with the boon of ten pool tables and private karaoke rooms. The interiors are inspired by the New York subway, but the food is Canadian themed – finger-lickin’ smoked BBQ ribs, bagel burgers (held together with a knife, grrr) and loaded sharing platters. The menu is to be refreshed every ten weeks to reflect changing trends. Expect nightly surprises too, like the Red Light Rush, offering discounted drinks, and a spin of the Lucky Wheel on arrival may bag you a prize.

Things you probably already know about Parker’s: its strict “no key, no food” policy, it’s run by the folks behind Salt and the lotus drama dessert regularly sends social media into a mega-tizz. Coaxing adults to use their imaginations beyond “shall we try that new restaurant tonight” is key (sorry) at Parker’s; they hide keys all over Dubai (clues and hints on Snapchat and Instagram) and if you find one, you get to try dishes like pretzel chicken strips, mac‘n’cheese, Parker’s burger or lime hot pasta. Think like your quirky nine-year-old self, get messy and eat until you go pop. Now, go and find that key.
Where: Second Floor, The Dubai Mall

The Late, Late Brunch
A brunch tailored to our needs! For a start the playlist comes courtesy of indie rock night Loaded. The incredible food and drinks menu also helps, as do the myriad arcade games. Another pull is the fact it’s only AED250 for an open bar and two courses. It runs 2-5pm on the pub side of Stereo Arcade, and this month singer Jeremy Lawrence will be performing a range of rock and indie classics.

The world’s highest ladies’ night has arrived on the 71st floor of the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai. With its panoramic views, Vault is the perfect place for sundowners (cooled by AC) after work. Every Tuesday, ladies can expect three complimentary hand-crafted concoctions (in really tall glasses, we hope) and a relaxed vibe from 7pm until midnight, as DJ Nicol mixes everything from RnB and house to ‘80s and ‘90s classics.
When: JW Marriott Marquis, Business Bay

The London izakaya restaurant brand has opened in Dubai, serving up the likes of tuna sashimi pizza, fried truffle and cheese dumplings with truffle ponzu, and fried chicken kara-age sliders with kimchee mayo. Ramusake also has a theatrical robata counter, where the chefs fling around your food as though they were auditioning for Arabs Got Talent.

Al Hambra
There is a new award-winner in town: Al Hambra, presided over by head chef Oscar Poque, just won the prestigious Chef’s Choice 2016 award. They triumphed with their Mediterranean-inspired two-course menu of tapas (brava potatoes, garlic shrimps and chicken croquettes) and a main course of a mixed paella of seafood, chicken and Arabic spices. Worth a visit we’d say.
