Okku Dubai


Who likes a bit of high-end Japanese, or, more to the point, who doesn’t? Pass through a waterfall of green fairy lights to enter this raised-level lounge bar. Hip, glamorous and always surprising, you never know who you’ll meet here.

Check out the hipster granddad who walks around in silver sneakers, pinstripe pants and a white blazer with a multi-coloured praying mantis print - total dude vibes. This place is Zuma’s eccentric sister.

We started with the Jasmine Lychee Martini (fresh lychee, jasmine tea, vodka, lychee juice and lychee liqueur) - a sweet one for the girls amongst us. BarChick’s hot date, a lover of spice (and BarChick) had the Akuma Martini (Bombay Sapphire, cucumber, chilies, pineapple, lychee juice and passion fruit sugar) which was, how do you say: zing.

The staff here know their shiz, and the food is bang on too. We ate black cod and shied away from moon jellyfish (BarChick had a bad experience once and no she didn’t let her date pee on her).
