Is that the temperature cooling you hear?
Seriously, I sat outside for dinner one evening this week (at Koko Bay, read on to hear why this doggo-welcoming spot is very best-est new beach bar in town) and FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MONTHS, it was actually manageable, minus massive dripping beads of sweat!
The weather is cooling and with that, the city feels alive once again. YAAY! Whatever you do, plan it in small groups and remember to stay safe, wash your hands and wear your mask!
Here are the great things you can do in Dubai this weekend.
7. KoKo Bay is the beach bar and resto Dubai has been waiting for…
And it’s now open! If you have dreams of visiting Bali, then thank you for manifesting this B-E-A-utiful bar and resto in Dubai.
With both indoor and outdoor seating, this has so chilled-back-you’re-horizontal beach bar vibes. It’s littered with hammocks and beach swings and the South Asian menu is TO-DIE-FOR. Kick-off your visit with cocktails; a lot of thought went into curating this drinks menu; they look fantastic, taste even better and are actually fairly priced for a Palm beach bar. (Koko G&T from AED49)
The menu is HEAPED with delish options so do ask your server for some menu recommendations! Seafood lovers this menu has got you with Spanish Octopus, whole sea bass, line-caught calamari and more, while there’s plenty for meat lovers too including New Zealand lamb chops and twice-cooked back ribs. For starters, don’t leaf without trying the duck lettuce rolls(!), and there are also lots of yum looking salad options for a light lunch.
If you love beach cocktails, pan-Asian eats and dunking your toes in the sand; Koko Bay is made for you.
P.s pet parents, pets are welcome!
