In pics: Inside the chicest new restaurant in Dubai


One of the most beloved restaurants in Dubai has officially opened in a new area of the emirate.

Couqley Bistro & Bar first came to the UAE from the shores of Beirut in 2016 firmly cementing itself as a hotspot in JLT.

Now, six years on, the restaurant has added a second location to its roster on the opposite end of the city in Business Bay.

The Couqley French Brasserie has opened its doors in the Pullman Hotel, adding to the ever-growing dining scene in Downtown Dubai.

Bringing the same beloved charm to its JLT flagship, the new Couqley space spans an impressive 6,250 square metres designed by Dubai-based Portuguese artist Ana D’Castro encapsulating the true spirit of Paris.

Featuring an expansive outdoor terrace with views of Dubai Canal and Downtown Dubai, as well as a large indoor space with triple-height ceilings, the restaurant venue features soaring high walls in rich teal, a wooden parquet floor, a centrally located marble-top island bar and a semi-open kitchen creating a direct view of the chefs at work.

While Couqley French Brasserie is certainly distinct in style, you’ll be welcomed with the same endearing hospitality and exquisite cuisine just like its sister JLT flagship. The Business Bay venue will also be serving up the same weekly dining deals allowing diners to indulge in Couqley’s Business Lunch, Steak Frites Mondays and Ladies Night.
