Jeeezzz I’ve just taken way too long to get my ass into gear for a blog post. I’ve been redecorating my house and actually planning a housewarming so I will have some posts about DIY stuff on that next month.
In the meantime I wanted to share a little night that launched before Ramadan and is now continuing on with a bang – it’s called Dirty Laundry at GQ BAR, JW Marriott Marquis. Hosted by the Mostwntd crew that bring no nonsense events – just good music, good food, great crowd. Wash it up wear it out is their tagline and this is delivered through with a non pretentious event. It’s just a good mid week decision and if you are want quality over the messy ‘ladies’ night choices on a Tuesday check out the event on their FB page: Mostwntd
Here is a photo from last week where I finally dragged myself out of the house from post holiday blues. I managed to pull off this Zara dress to fit in with this super stylish crowd for a bargain at the sales for 150AED 🙂
For the bar itself – I love it. It reminds me of alley bars in Australia, the staff are great, the decor is so exclusive and warm (think masculine with fireplaces and vintage GQ covers), music is amazing both nights I’ve been and the layout allows for a little dance near the DJ. They have ladies night! Monday’s are two free drinks to go with their affordable bar menu (Sushi is well presented).
Back to the whole Tuesday night crowd – I’ve got a soft spot for this hotel. The bars and venues are so nice that you can literally bar hop your way around on any Tuesday or weekend night. Dinner at Positano or Nawwara (I recommend either of them), bar hop to Vault for some cocktails over the amazing SZR view (crowd is a little hit and miss but the venue itself is worth a checkout), bar hop to GQ – stay until 3am or go onto VIP room for the last hour and dance the night away.
I love this hotel and thanks to Dirty Laundry got to experience GQ bar in full force – Tipsy Tuesday Night now cleaned up.
