It can be overwhelming to pick one great spot when you are surfing numerous options through Dubai’s pond of best hangouts. It can be time-consuming so we decided to inform you about a new conceptual resto that opened in Dubai. The newest establishment to open at The H Dubai Hotel is Electric Pawn Shop. It takes its inspiration from Chinatown built in 1970s New York.

Dubai Welcomes The Coolest Night Hangout Spot

The eatery draws greatly on New York’s underground pub scene and Hong Kong’s pawn shops. Bar guru Lynn Lin (of Beirut’s Electric Bin Sutt bar) and veteran DJ Lobito Brigante from Dubai came up with this concept. The idea, which combines both of their domains of expertise, is sound.

What’s The Vibe Like?

This latest venture is capable of standing apart from most bar scenes due to it’s one its kind concept.

The establishment seeks to blend counterculture, underground music, and modern design. This is a one-stop show to enjoy unique dining and drinking experiences. As soon as you enter the neon-lit bar, which is located on the building’s side, you can feel the rebellious atmosphere.

Concrete floors, unusual interior features, and a whole wall of vinyl behind the DJ booth give the bar’s interior an apocalyptic vibe. A brightly illuminated sign plainly states that the DJ doesn’t quite entertain requests. And rightfully so, as DJ Lobito consistently spins a diverse selection of songs that create a laid-back atmosphere.

On the drinks menu, the creative mixed drinks stand out, with their Asia-inspired flavours, decent prices (between Dhs60-Dhs78) and witty names. For those who prefer hops, there are several Asian brands on offer (albeit in bottle form). And in keeping with the theme, there’s a vast rice-based Japanese drink selection.
