Espana, Dubai’s hottest Spanish nightspot, is now open
Espana Lounge Bar has opened its doors to the public in Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, Deira. The licensed restaurant and lounge offers authentic tapas as well as signature Spanish dishes and cocktails that are sure to give guests a taste of the inimitable spirit and vibes of Spain. Drawing inspiration from the vibrant nightlife of cities such as Barcelona and Ibiza, the venue is the perfect setting for avid partygoers in Dubai who are eager to experience an unforgettable night out.
Upon entering the space, guests will be swept away to a surreal wonderland, far removed from the bustling metropolis of Dubai. Within the 6,600-sqft space, there are seamlessly laid out areas that reflect the eclectic Spanish décor and offer a myriad of options. Whether choosing to savour molecular cuisine on the terrace or to bounce between the Sangria, Gaudi and Ladies Only bars (where attentive servers interrupt only to provide a selection of electrifying shots), guests can be assured of being more than well looked after. If all this doesn’t prove to be enough, a huge high-definition LED screen wall that circles the larger part of the venue, promises to engage crowds with its high-resolution audio visuals.
I went last week to try their soft opening menu and I was impressed by the taste and the quality of the food.
Although, they are just serving only cold and hot appetizers in their soft opening, we enjoyed a lot.
I asked the bar man to make me a mocktail that has passion fruit and he made me an amazing drink!
Let me start telling you about what we ate!
Beetroot, potato, parsley, carrot, onion and parsnip chips
Padron peppers, sour cream with cream cheese and sesame oil
It lacked of taste, I would add something a bit strong to give a flavor.
Beef with alcohol, mozzarella, emmental, garlic, coriander, white wine, beef bacon in a home-made pastry shell.
These are the best ever empanadas I have eaten so far.
Smoked chicken, mayonnaise, mushrooms, green onion, croutons, almons and pea seedlings.
It was a very tasty chicken salad!
Chicken Kebabs A La Spain
They had a very nice flavor and their home-made Mojo sauce is amazing!
Beef Bacon Potato Skins
Beef strips, shredded mozzarella and baked potato
It was just divine!
Smoked Salmon with Pumpkin
Smoked salmon, baked pumpkin, cheese, black pesto, almonds petals, leek flour and Brussel sprouts.
The salmon was very fresh and soft and the pumpkin had an exquisite taste!
Fresh Prawns Al Ajillo
Fresh Prawns, garlic, white wine, fresh chili, parsley and salmon crisp
It was so delicious!
The official opening is on March 10, 2017 and I recommend you to try it!
Amazing Spanish food!
