Drop in at a Lounge Bar When You Visit Dubai

Enjoy a drink at a lounge bar in Dubai that’s quiet and classy

Hendricks Bar is the perfect place for businesswomen who are visiting Dubai to enjoy a quiet, low-key drink with colleagues after work.

Located in the lobby of the Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach and this lounge bar is styled predominantly on the classic British club.

It has an elegant decor which comprises of rich, dark wood paneling, plush deep purple leather walls and comfortable arm chairs which hark back to an elite Gentleman’s club in London.

Views of the hotel’s surrounding gardens, swimming pools and the ocean are via tall windows and contrast well with the quiet and dimly lit intimacy of Hendricks Bar.

Guests enjoying time here can order a simple home blended gin cocktail or a speciality, aged whiskey or Scotch from the lounge bar’s comprehensive drinks menu.

For a unique experience, the skilled waiting staff transport a gin and tonic trolley to guests and then mix their drinks in front of them at their tables.

There are interesting and specially designed bottles of gin which contain a variety of flavors including black pepper and rose.

Guests can also order Scottish and British-inspired small plates from the bar menu, such as Blue Stilton Bites with onion marmalade, cured Scottish salmon, Welsh Rarebit and Parmesan Truffle.

Hendricks is open every day fairly late, from 2:00 pm until 2:00 am.

There are also special themed nights each week such as  ‘Wined Down Wednesdays’ which takes shape from 6:00 pm until 9:00 pm.

During this theme night guests can enjoy fine wines which have been hand-picked by the hotel’s resident sommelier.

Favorites are a smooth, rich Malbec from Argentina and in contrast a lighter Pinot Grigio from Italy.

Fridays hosts a much more energetic and snazzy evening with live Jazz. ‘Gin and Jazz Night’ runs until 12:00 midnight.

Otherwise, this lounge bar has a private room and other enjoyable themed nights during the week and is known as one of the city’s premier cigar bars.
