Weslodge Saloon debuted in Canada in 2012 has opened its branch in Dubai. Located in the tallest hotel of the world: JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai; Weslodge is a Modern tavern offering up American fare & classic cocktails in a trendy atmosphere. It is located on the 68th floor offering its guests spectacular skyline city views. It’s a spacious restaurant/lounge/bar with Deadwood-style North American Saloon feel.
The menu explores classically rooted but adventurously reinterpreted American cuisine. Hand selected teams of expert mixologists break the rules to create unique interpretations of classic drinks with Saloon favorites such as the Orange Spiced old fashioned and Barrel Aged Negroni.
I decided to take my cousins to celebrate JWD’s 4th Birthday at Weslodge and everybody loved the place. We enjoyed an array of dishes and drinks. Devilled Crab (The crab meat is slowly sauteed with seasonings, breaded, rolled into the approximate shape of a rugby football or a small potato, and deep fried), Crisp Quail Egg, Shaved Brussels Sprouts, Iceberg Wedge ( a simple salad done right), Weslodge Chop (Well Done and juicy), Spring Green, Roasted Beets, Mushroom Pie, Ricotta Gnudi ( gnocchi-like dumplings made with ricotta cheese instead of potato, with very little or no flour. The result is often a lighter, “pillowy” dish), Herb Roasted Chicken, Onion Rings (Crispy and less oily), Thrice Cooked Chips, Grilled Snap Peas, Broccolini, Roast Cauliflower, Rhubard Pie. Yeah we ate way too much and why not?? 🙂 The food was out of the world.
Some of our favourite drinks from the menu are Hemmigway Daiquiri, Scarlett’s Peach and lots of amazing shots made from Vodka, Tequila, JD . We just asked the staff to get us some awesome shots and believe me they did a great job. Service is superb and they were sweet enough to get me a yummy cake that said JWD Turns 4.
If you are planning your casual evening out or even a special day I highly recommend that you head to Weslodge Saloon.
