Dubai Marina’s most exciting new bar opening took place on Wednesday March 12 at Pier 7, and our cameras were there to capture it.

Cargo, with its feel of a bustling harbour-side eatery, proudly positions itself as being ‘reminiscent of 1960s Hong Kong. With its roots firmly planted in East-Asian culture, Cargo is a laid back restaurant and lounge bringing the rawness and spice of the East to new Dubai. Think shipping crates, raw steel, concrete and weathered wood interiors, looking out onto impressive views of the Marina.
