My Saturday evenings are for date nights with hubby. Last Saturday we visited Icon Bar & Lounge in Radisson Blu Hotel Dubai Media City for our weekly Saturday evening rendezvous. It was our first visit to Icon Bar & Lounge and we had good time.
Icon Bar & Lounge has two floors- a lounge area in the ground floor and a bar area in the first floor. As we wanted to have a quiet evening, chatting and dining with a drink or two, we sat in the lounge.
The lounge area was spacious with a well-stocked bar and comfortable seating arrangement. While the bar upstairs was full and noisy, the lounge below had few people and was very quiet.
The beverage menu consisted of all the regular bar favorites like beer, wine, cocktails, mocktails and other spirits. We ordered a pint of Beer and a glass of Red Wine. As in any other bar and lounge, we were offered complimentary bowl of Nuts.
We really liked their food menu as it not only consisted of bar bites, but also had wholesome dishes. So we had a complete meal with starter, main course and dessert.
The vegetarian options were limited, upon special request they do serve dishes that are not in their menu which is a big plus point.
As our starter, we had crispy and delicious mini Vegetable Samosas with fresh Mint Chutney. The samosas were served on a bed of well-seasoned and comforting Curly Fries.
Next we had the Ortolana Pizza, a delicious wood-fired pizza topped with tomato sauce, mozzarella, eggplant, zucchini, capsicum and olives.
For the main course, we requested for the Vegetable Curry instead of the Chicken Tikka Masala as we are vegetarians. The curry came along with poppadum, steamed rice and paratha. The portion size was big and can be easily shared between two people. The taste and flavor was on point.
We ended our evening with their dessert of the day which was a scrumptious Chocolate Mousse Cake.
If you’re looking for a bar and lounge with decent food and drinks in Dubai Media City, then you can definitely give Icon Bar & Lounge a try.
