Ideal for… a cool post-work place to grab drinks & a snack in the Media City area.


Restaurant name and location: Story Rooftop Lounge in the Holiday Inn Express hotel in Dubai Media City.

Cuisine: International/Peruvian

Atmosphere: I was there on a Sunday night – it was full yet relaxed. It’s quite packed on the weekends though!

What they say: Story Rooftop Lounge takes us back to basics. Bringing a down to earth and real venue to Dubai, it combines breathtaking sunsets and exhilarating sounds with an explosion of Peruvian flavours throughout its sharing menu. Appealing to those with a more rebellious approach to life, the venue is real, eclectic and aims to contradict the “bling bling” of Dubai


What to order:

-Quinoa salad (avocado, lemongrass, olive oil, hummus, lime, cheese & quinoa – tangy & delicious)

-Sweet potato fries (one of the best sweet potato fries I’ve had!)

-Scallop skewers

-Lomo saltodo Beef spring rolls (beef that melts in your mouth)


Service: Slow


What I loved:

-Sharing plates/tapas style concept.

-The Latin American art outside and inside the lounge.


What I didn’t love as much:

-Service (I felt like my waiter was slightly clueless, or could’ve been his first day…)


Bill for two: AED200
