From the tartan upholstery to the extensive variety of malt beverages, via dangling decorations assembled from antlers, Copper Dog feels pulled straight from the Highlands.
But since opening opposite JBR last year, this Scottish import (the original in Speyside is well-known for its celebrity guests) has been right at home on Dubai’s pub scene. While still relatively new to the city, it has that elusive lived-in feel that many bars have tried and failed to replicate, right down to the odd creaky floorboard.
It’s at once a perfect place to hide from the summer heat, and a brilliantly cosy spot when Christmas comes around and the tree goes up. And when the finishing touches are finally in place on Ain Dubai and Bluewaters Island in the next couple of years, it’ll have unbeatable views of two of the city’s most anticipated new attractions.
