Indochine gets it right with a menu of flavourful French-Vietnamese food and if you stick with these options you won't be disappointed (bypass the Jungle Curry and other Thai hybrid dishes). First opened in New York in the 80s, this intimate bar, lounge and restaurant takes the old Gramercy location in DIFC, with a total refurb that channels a mix of 80s pop culture and Hanoi nights. Always busy for dinner, Indochine also offers a more accessible business lunch, but if you want to capture this hotspot at its best, don your most fashion-forward attire and soak up the seductive atmosphere on an evening where you’ll find a queue of wannabe revelers trying to talk their way through the bookings list.
