Introducing Dan, our Senior Sales Account Manager… Whether you are part of a family, a couple or a single lad like me, there is something for everyone on the ENTERTAINER. Being the token single man in the department (and therefore a single man in Dubai), I’ve decided to put together a list of places you can go flying solo, with the lads, or for when that perfect date comes your way.
Where should a single man in Dubai head to?
Location: Dubai Design District
Molecule is a new, trendy outlet located in one of the more “hipster” parts of Dubai, the Design District. Arguably one of the first restaurants here to pioneer this idea of “bistronomy”; which presents gourmet dishes in a casual setting. The design is very modern and contemporary, paired with a hip and fashionable crowd. The mixologists are friendly, chatty and go about their craft with finesse.
Location: Dusit Thani Dubai
On the left side of the ground floor at the Dusit SZR, there is a bookshelf, which is actually a secret door, which once pulled, reveals this wonderful bar. It’s a testament to the diverse drinking culture in Japan. With a fine selection of hops and grape, you name it, they’ve got it. It’s quirky, unique and quite reminiscent of a speakeasy.
Location: Grand Millenium Dubai
Another fab place for a single man in Dubai is Good ole Lock Stock. They have happy hour every day, and gets full on most nights. It’s a great place to go out with the lads; whether it is to see a premier league game, to cool off with a game of pool or for some after-work drinks. They have an upper deck, where people move to when it gets full downstairs, and that area also contains tables that can be reserved for large groups. A live band plays on some nights and a DJ is present on Fridays. Staff are friendly and the crowd is vibrant. Now that the new LSB in JBR is opening up, it’s going to be double the fun.
My recommendation: The LSB Sampler – which is perfect for sharing.
Location: Address Dubai Marina & Manzil Downtown Dubai
This is an exciting location for sports fans and meat lovers alike. They have two branches, one in the marina and one in downtown, which means depending on where you live in the city, there will be a Nezesaussi Grill at most 20 mins away from you. Football and Rugby games are shown on huge screens, the food portions are generous and so are the drinks. The Friday brunch is nice and very easy on the pocket (AED 199 without an ENTERTAINER, so do the math!) Service is great and it’s very casual.
My recommendation: The Nezesaussi Platter and then some ribs.
So, if like me you’re a single man in Dubai, I hope to have provided you with a little bit of inspiration!
