It’s one of the prettiest spots in DIFC…

After a summer hiatus, Dubai’s alfresco bars and restaurants are finally opening for the new season – and one place we can’t wait to revisit is Flair No. 5 in The Ritz Carlton, DIFC.

The secret garden-style bar opened in February this year, serving up botanical cocktails and floral-inspired dishes from its lush perch on the terrace.

They’re back with a revamped menu. Expect beautifully presented Mediterranean-inspired dishes, as well as some more hearty options like a bone marrow burger, fish & chips, ribeye steak and fries with truffle and parmesan.

This almost looks too good to eat (emphasis on ‘almost’)…

Drinks wise, take your pick from a selection of crafty cocktails such as the ‘Flairtini’ laced with sweet peaches, ‘Early Blossom’ dripped in aromatic hibiscus and rose syrup, or you can even build your own drink by choosing from a wide variety of gins and pairing them with different botanical and tonic waters.

With the new season comes a new programme of weekly events. The Rize Group will take over Flair’s Monday nights with an exciting line-up of DJs, while Wednesdays will be reserved for ladies with the return of the ‘Bloom’ ladies’ night, offering four free beverages along with six pieces of vegetable maki rolls.

Saxo Deep on Thursdays will help you switch to weekend mode with deep house music by Flair’s resident DJs Mick & Dsax, and there will be another theme night to look forward to on Fridays.

We’ll see you there for sundowners…

Flair No. 5, The Ritz Carlton, DIFC, daily 5pm to 2am. Tel: (04) 372 2323.
