Happy is what happens when a good drink and music combines to offer a perfect escape. MUZE Dubai located at the center of now is that space where words are few and music speaks. The ambiance here sets every heart to sing. Though the soulful tunes takes center stage, come prepared to be satiated in more ways than one. The sophisticated watering hole makes craft cocktails with inspired pairings, eclectic decor- retro chairs, leather furnishing, theatrical lightings- as is the clientele.The place features an extensive bar and high tables seating area with an equally strategic view of the stage, positioned at the base of an iconic backdrop that transports viewers to timeless musical eras.

We walked into a relaxed and empty space at 9pm on a Wednesday evening thinking we hit a dead spot. In a blink of an eye we were proven wrong as the city's fashion forward paraded and the space filled in.We had a delightful evening sipping on some of MUZE'S celebrated cocktails and grooving to live soul and jazz tunes by singer Rouba Zeidan. The Lebanese artist/songwriter, with her phenomenal voice, bright bandana in her hair and her wide hooped earnings -  she's a blast from the past and kept every heart in the room engaged with her passion for music.

I would describe this space as a new hidden gem in the heart of the city. This is a venue that boasts of old fashioned charm, top notch entertainment, robust cocktail menu, all of which evokes a bygone era of glamour, glitz and good times. To get the most of a visit at MUZE, i would highly recommend booking ahead.
