6 Irresistible Latino Nights
NIGHTLIFE
We run down some Latino inspired dance spots for you to get your groove on at…
 
ASIA DE CUBA / THE WESTIN HOTEL, MINA SEYAHI
The big news is that old favourite China Grill at The Westin Hotel, Mina Seyahi will be transforming in to sister brand – Asia de Cuba. The Latino / Asian inspired fusion brand will be taking cues from the vibrant roots of Cuba and transporting those to modern day had the diverse Asian community not moved to America in the 50’s and 60’s. The majority of the brand will be influenced by Cuba and its Latin roots with the food and beverage menu being flecked with Asian inspired dishes. Asia de Cuba will also have an all Cuban house band performing live as well as DJ’s spinning Latino inspired music to ensure you are swept away in the Latin spirit for the entire evening.
 
ZOCO / THE ATRIUM, AL HABTOOR CITY
This ulta-chic tex-mex eatery in the newly established Al Habtoor City development has been wowing crowds since Zoco opened its doors in September of last year and has benefitted hugely from its authentic Latin décor and contemporary meets classic menu. Zoco also hosts Salsaritas each and every Monday, a ladies’ night with a twist where, as well receiving 25% off their food bill and 3 free drinks, the ladies will get to enjoy complimentary Salsa classes.
 
ASADO / THE PALACE HOTEL, DOWNTOWN DUBAI
If you are looking for a truly Latin steakhouse one restaurant that demands your attention is Asado, situated in close proximity to the Burj Khalifa and the jaw dropping Dubai Fountains, this faithfully represented steak house is probably the closest thing you will find to dining in the region. Open low fires where whole baby goat is roasted before your eyes, expertly trained staff, produce sourced only from Latin America and a cellar that would have any grape aficionado gulping at the prospect of what is contained high above dining room floor. What really strikes a chord with this eatery is the seemingly unannounced and impressive Tango sessions that take place at one end of the dining room, if this is your bag then delve a little deeper, grab your partner and take to the floor. If that is a little too much effort, why not relax after your meal on the stunning quayside terrace.
