The impression Armani/Hashi gives is of a place where well-mannered and monied adults dine in their best threads. Walk into the restaurant and each of the aforementioned notions is thrown out of the window. Set on the ground level, with the fountains and Souk Al Bahar’s beautiful façade in front, along with cosy seating perfectly angled for you to enjoy the stunning scenery and a talented DJ spinning club hits, it blows you away. Opt for the five-course set menu with a surprisingly delicious seafood soup served in an authentic Japanese soup vessel – a teapot with a tiny bowl placed on top. The standout culinary gem in the set menu is the short rib – juicy and doused in the barbeque marinade, it simply fills the senses. Haute cuisine aside, it’s the hip, chic and breezy ambience that makes this restaurant a winner. This venue is a one-stop-shop for a complete night – a fancy restaurant, a lounge and a club all in one.
