Recently the first branch of the restaurants chain Weslodge Saloon opened in Dubai at JW Marriott Marquis in Business Bay, it is a bar, lounge, restaurant offering a cool vibe Artistically elegant and modern. The restaurant concept is brought to the emirate from Toronto, Canada, where it opened in 2012.
Weslodge is a cosy place with pulsating music, unique design. For the decor Canadian company Navigate Design was brought in to create a Deadwood-style, North American saloon feel, complete with giant antlers on the walls, alongside monochrome photographs of pioneers. But the panoramic 68th-floor view – looking out at the Burj Khalifa – gives the vintage decor a 21st-century twist.
Executive chef Ben Heaton applies modern techniques and global flavors to classic American fare, with items such as Smoky Beef Tartare, piri piri glazed whole chicken, baked pies and soft serve ice cream. Cocktails include saloon favorites, such as the orange spiced old fashioned and barrel-aged negroni.
The 4,500 square-foot space, which includes a partly open kitchen, can accommodate 140 diners.
Address: JW Marriott Marquis, Business Bay, Sheikh Zayed Rd, Dubai – United Arab Emirates.
