First look: Famed Esco-bar Coctel y Cocina opens in Dubai
Teleport to Latin America…
For those of you who have visited Lebanon, you would have most likely visited, or at least heard of the popular Escobar. There are seven outlets in Lebanon and one in Cairo, and now the lively venue has opened its doors here in Dubai.
The casual yet elevated Tex-Mex spot is located in front of Palm Beach West on Palm Jumeirah in the newly opened Radisson Beach Resort. The Dubai branch will be larger than the cosy outposts in Lebanon, with seating for 220 party people across the vibrant indoor restaurant and leafy alfresco dining space.
The space oozes authentic Latin culture from its interiors to the cuisine on offer and its range of beverages. The interiors boast designs that showcase Hispanic artistry from the intricately verdant décor that depicts the old streets of Latin-American neighbourhoods to neutral wood accents. Guests will be welcomed by lush greenery and a pretty combination of green, dusty pink and gold hues riddled with pops of yellow, before taking a seat in the chic dining area.
Half of the restaurant is fitted with high chairs located close to the eye-catching yellow and green bar bragging attractive arch designs.
There’s an outdoor space allowing diners to enjoy an alfresco experience while soaking in the cooler weather. And of course, we can picture how sundown will look while seated here.

The menu brags a number of popular Latin American dishes including indulgent favourites such as fajitas, ceviche, salads, and more. For a bigger meal, there’s Camarones a la Criolla (grilled shrimp with onions, tomatoes, capers and white wine), Pescado de Esco-bar (white fish fillet served with baked potato and rice) and much more.
If you want to enjoy your drinks (with a bit of a show), take a seat on one of the plush bar stools and pick from a wide range of cocktails and watch the magic happen in front of you. All drinks are curated in true Esco-bar style and you will witness mixologists add flavours from droppers, pour in homemade concoctions and even use smokers to create those lip-smacking flavours before presenting it in unique cups and glasses
Your dining experience will be further elevated with entertainers from DJs to pop-up entertainment who will keep you in the right mood with the Latin American and Caribbean beats.
The restaurant is open daily from 12pm to 3am. For reservations, call the team on 056 444 7575.
