7 Reasons Why This Place In DIFC Is Just Like Visiting Barcelona

Laluz Bar And Lounge Lr

Laluz in DIFC was on my radar since it opened last year, but I never got a chance to check it out. It had an interesting mix of good drinks and ladies night offering, great cigar options with its own in-house cigar expert and a unique menu. But I mainly wanted to visit because of it's Catalonian route, I love the bars and restaurants in Barcelona. The best ones are unassuming from the outside, but when you get in and get comfortable, you never want to leave. Laluz is just like that. 

1. The Food

2. The Food (Again)

So good, we say it twice. Often a menu (and we have the Chef's recommendations), has one good dish to shout about, this had at least four.

3. The location is on the Gate Level right in the heart of DIFC

The evening we went, Dubai Watch Week was taking place, so popping in to Laluz after ogling over fancy watches on display was the perfect way to cap off the evening.

4. It also happened to be ladies night, and this place is a hidden gem

Seasoned ladies night goers, know the best places in each area in Dubai. I was reliably informed that here and Barzar are the two best in DIFC. Why? It's a lounge / restaurant separated by a square bar, a bit like how Zuma is laid out, where the DJ plays in full view and the drinks are top quality. We had a cinnamon whiskey that was just perfect.

6. Business lunch

DIFC is the financial centre after all so business lunches are important. There are plenty of fancy business lunches in town, but then more often than not a practical one is needed. A nice environment, good food, service and decent value. This is what Laluz have got.
