For those who like to keep it a little more simple…

There are days that call for fancy restaurants and there are days that call for more chilled vibes, and for some, that means a casual British-style pub. Whilst many of these style of restaurants already exist in Dubai, there are plenty more opening or already open that you need on your radar.

Here are 4 new pubs to check out in Dubai…

Already Open

Tipsy Lion

Cool new pub Tipsy Lion just opened at Sofitel Dubai Downtown. Homage to a true British pub is evident in the details here, with walls comprising of wood panelling and exposed brick, plus wooden pub benches outside on the terrace. There are also plenty of games such as pool, table football and drink pong. Throughout the week there’s happy hours, a brunch, ladies’ night and roast dinner deal.

The Coins

The Coins English Pub is set to open in DIFC in the near future. Of late, there has been some activity on social media telling followers it’s ‘coming soon’, so watch this space. It will open in Emirates Financial Tower, DIFC, serving up ‘drinks and classic British pub favourites’. Judging by the website, it’s going to have live music, happy hours, ladies’ nights, brunch and a ‘pitcher hour’.

The Hidden Hog is the new restaurant, bistro and bar that is soon to open in DIFC. It looks like it is going to be a little more ‘Dubai’ (and European style) than British pub and, amongst European dishes, it will serve up real sausages and bacon. According to the website there will be a full English breakfast, business lunch and more.
