It looks as though very little has changed at the JLT favourite…

Axe House left behind a craft beer and pub grub shaped hole when it abruptly closed its doors in September, but a new British gastropub has opened in JLT to fill that void.

Occupying the space left behind by Axe House, Hoxton is described as an urban bar and eatery and opens daily from noon until 2am.

Although we don’t know much about the new spot, the first images released of the newly opened JLT gastropub indicate that few interior changes have been made.

The same urban, graffitied interiors, neon red signs and a games area called ‘The Den’ all still appear to remain unchanged.

We’re also looking forward to finding out how many, if any, changes have been made to the menu. The new gastropub is already advertising a weekly set menu from 2pm to 2am daily priced at Dhs125.

Hoxton is the latest in a string of recent Dubai openings. It’s hot on the heels of the openings of restaurants such as Villamore on The Palm, Mamazonia in Dubai Marina and Hell’s Kitchen on Bluewaters island.
