WESLODGE SALOON, JW MARRIOTT MARQUIS, Dubai
Creatively cool, elegant and modern. Weslodge Saloon exudes rebellious rock’n’roll chic through the iconic yellow doors, and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported back to the Wild West.
The dining room is decorated Deadwood-style, complete with antlers on the wall and black-and-white photographs of pioneers. It’s only when you take in the awe-inspiring 360-degree views of Dubai, and the restaurant’s celebrity clientele (Tyga was spotted dining here when he was last in town), that you’re brought bang up-to-date.
There are no fewer than five types of burrata on the menu, each with their own unique spin on the creamy cheese. It’s a bit like that at Weslodge – global flavours and classic American fare result in tempting dishes like lobster poutine, porterhouse steak, and the Weslodge burger, accompanied by irresistible sides like iceberg wedge, creamed corn and mac and cheese.
Meats are cooked over hardwood and charcoal. Weslodge’s giant four-metre grill, complete with rotisserie – which was custom-made in the US – is the biggest in the Middle East. This gives the chicken, beef and lamb that authentically smoky flavour, and turns the brined, roasted cauliflower into an exciting taste sensation. Choose adventurously reinterpreted tipples to complement your meal, and enjoy the musical stylings of resident DJs playing hip hop and rock and roll.
Ladies’ night on Wednesday from 8pm-12midnight. Get two free drinks in any case, or 50 percent off a main course and another two drinks (so four) for a <really> good time!
