Enjoy brunches, sushi nights and a brand new cocktail menu…

If you’ve got your finger firmly on the pulse of Dubai’s thriving social scene, chances are you’ve been to Iris. After the brand moved from Business Bay to a rooftop spot at Meydan a couple of years ago, it has firmly cemented itself as one of the city’s coolest bars.

Now the summer is here, you could be forgiven for thinking that Iris (as an outdoor bar) is a bit of a no-go for a few months. However, all is not lost, as a huge, and rather fancy, summer tent has been erected, meaning you can enjoy all your favourite Iris socials in the cool climes of air-conditioning.

Iris has also launched a brand new cocktail menu, with ingredients such as organic pear juice, osmanthus essence, white peach and rosemary with elderflower tonic. There’s plenty of events happening throughout the week, so there is something for everyone.
