Dante NYC in New York is often frequented by many a celebrity face…

Dante NYC is the world-famous cafe-turned bar that can be found occupying a tiny space in New York’s Greenwich Village, in the West Side of New York City. Now, residents and visitors to Dubai can get a slice of the action as a pop-up of Dante is coming to Dubai for a limited time only.

Let’s give you a little bit of context on Dante NYC, if you were’t already aware of it. The Italian cafe, known as ‘Caffe Dante’ opened back in 1915 and has been unwaveringly popular ever since. It’s no stranger to a famous face, having welcomed the likes of Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Whoopi Goldberg, Jerry Seinfeld, and Bob Dylan over the years.

New owners took it over in 2015, turning it into a successful bar. When we say successful, we mean it – it ranked number one  in the 2019 World’s Best 50 Bars Awards, “World’s Best Bar” by Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards on the same year, and Best Bar in North America 2019 & 2020 in the World’s Best 50 Bars Awards.
