Here’s what’s going to replace the popular Cocktail Kitchen bar and restaurant in JLT.
Open now, Axe House is a “casual craft hops and dining concept serving up simple wholesome dishes” and promises “a friendly neighbourhood atmosphere”.
Sounds good? It’s from the people behind uber-popular karaoke joyfest Lucky Voice, so we’re expecting big nose about this place! Inside the theme is Cool Britannia, channelling the edgy eclectic vibes of edgy East End London neighbourhoods like Shoreditch and Spitalfields.
Even the Axe House menu has cool credentials, inspired by the UK capital’s famous Borough Market, an institution for London food lovers. Signature dishes include Notting Hill Jerk Chicken, Brick Lane Tikka Salmon, A Day Trip To Brighton seafood platter, and the Portobello veggie burger. Add in the what they’re claiming as “the widest craft hops selection in Dubai” and a simply marvellous bar team, and Axe House looks like it will be winning patrons from JLT and beyond.
Kicking off with a 12pm-8pm daily happy hour of two-for-one beverages that will suit pretty much everyone, within the bar/restaurant sports fans will also find appeal in The Den, with its 100 inch TV screen showing all the big events, a pool table, air hockey table and “pong” games to while away half-time.
From next Tuesday, there’s also a weekly ladies’ night, with four complimentary beverages for the women and 50 per cent discount off the entire restaurant menu for mixed groups between 5pm-12am.
Looking ahead to next year, brunches and roast dinner packages launching in January all sound equally tempting.
Axe House, Armada Blue Bay Hotel, Cluster P, JLT. Open daily 12pm to 2am. 04 3999 577.
