Barbary Deli + Cocktail Club opens in Barsha Heights
The deli and retro cocktail club can be found in TRYP by Wyndham.
Barsha Heights, formally known as Tecom, is fast becoming one of the city’s trendiest spots.
Thanks to the arrival of two new boutique hotels, the Dusit d2 Kenz hotel and TRYP by Wyndham, and taking into account already-popular hangouts Lock, Stock and Barrel and Lucky Voice, the neighbourhood is firmly establishing itself on the map.
And now a new opening, Barbary Deli + Cocktail Club, is set to add to that ever-growing list of Barsha Heights hotspots.
The deli and club by restauranteur Joel Ghazal is inspired by speakeasy bars of 1930s Paris, and is decked out with cushy low sofas, checkered terrazzo tiles, red velvet curtains, crystal chandeliers and dim lace lamps.
Split into three separate offers – the ‘deli’, the cocktails and the club – guests can expect to enjoy a delicatessen-style menu, prohibition-inspired cocktails and weekly club nights named ’12 Inch Tuesdays’, ‘Hotel Amour’ Thursdays and ‘Disco Pink’ Fridays.
The ‘deli’ kitchen features a menu of deli counter favourites, as well as some heartier dishes. Expect to find a variety of premium cured meats, market salads, bread & dips and sandwiches, alongside a raw bar and grill options including beef short rib and roast chicken.
Launching on Thursday December 14, Barbary will be open for dinner only until January 7, and then a lunch and Friday brunch offer will be added to their line-up of weekly nights.
Guests heading to the new spot can expect to find a weekly Tuesday ladies night offering complimentary wine and cocktails, and a revival of 70s and 80s nu disco on the weekends.
Barbary, TRYP by Wyndham, Barsha Heights, daily 12pm to 12am (lunch service from January 7). Tel: (04) 247 6688. barbary.ae
