A 141-room hotel is set to open in Dubai’s Studio City and it's bringing some of the emirates’ most-loved dining and nightlife outlets with it.

The Studio One Hotel will open later this quarter, but there's already excitement building for the collection of new dining outlets that will call this place home.

Old Favourites

As well as The Maine Street Eatery, the latest venture from the people behind JBR's The Maine Oyster Bar and Grill, Dubai stalwart The Irish Village will also open at the hotel.

The pub has been offering up traditional Irish food, drink and music for 23 years in its Garhoud location and the new outpost will be its fourth in Dubai. LARTE, which first found a home in Dubai’s Design District, will also open a new venue in the hotel, in the shape of an Italian neighbourhood bistro.

Home-grown brands

The Meating Room will serve fusion Indian food with dishes like Shiny Disco Fries and Botti Licious lamb set to make an appearance if the menu is anything like the original in Karama.

Home-grown Asian nightspot Mr Miyagi’s will also join the scene. Named after the iconic martial arts sensei from hit eighties movie The Karate Kid, guests can expect Asian street food and a party vibe if the new place takes its lead from the original in Dubai’s Media One hotel or its recent outpost at Yas Marina, Abu Dhabi.

Questionably named after the accused Mexican drug kingpin, El Chapos is set to serve food from across the United Mexican States.

There will be a mix of five different room types including long-stay studio options and bunk bed rooms that are not just for kids. Each will feature bold graphics, pop-art prints and exposed elements, and there will be a handy grab and go pantry on every level.

There will also be a mini-cinema, a temperature-controlled swimming pool, a gym and a beauty salon.

On Air

Nodding to its location in Dubai Studio City, known for its creative, entertainment, broadcast and music production companies, the hotel’s interiors have a retro media vibe courtesy of On Air recording boxes functioning as door signs and old television test graphics woven into the corridor carpets. Old cassette tape pencil holders desktop mock typewriters and screen-reel wall coverings add to the vibe.

Located just behind Dubai Motor City, Studio City is conveniently placed for travellers landing at either DXB or DWC airports. Nearby attractions include Mall of the Emirates, Global Village, Dubai Autodrome and IMG Worlds of Adventure.
