The new venue And Lounge opens next Wednesday in The Address, Dubai Marina. With its industrial yet chic decor, the lounge celebrates artistic expression and unique personalities in a warm, personal setting. The food on the small menu is meant to share (with complimentary bites between 6pm and 8pm each night it’s open). The menu won’t be revealed until opening day, but we’ve been told to expect homestyle cooking prepared with fresh ingredients. Beverages will be served vessels that include milk bottles, camel’s head mugs, jam jars and even trophies. And Lounge will feature live music from the 1920s through the 1990s and is open Tuesday through Friday from 6pm to 3am. 04 551 9698
