Hg2 : The Hedonist


Oddly, this is one of the few places in Dubai where it’s still possible to sit outside comfortably in the height of summer. Whether it’s the high-rise, faux-olde-Arabic hotel that it sits slap-bang in the middle of shielding you from the blazing sun or the overspill from the air-con inside, this accidental micro-climate makes it the perfect place to sit and enjoy meze and shisha on a balmy night. Service can be a little slow and it’s such a hot ticket (excuse the pun) that most nights you might have to wait a while waiting for a table, but once ensconced, you’ll want to linger.
