Iris is a modern lounge bar in Meydan Racecourse area that offers a seven days a week schedule of lively activities from art shows to brunch parties, alongside an international menu and imaginative cocktail list. Claiming to bring an ‘elegant, natural, sensuous and free-spirited energy’ to Dubai, Iris is an all-day destination that seamlessly transitions from day to night, making it the perfect destination whether you’re after a leisurely lunch on the terrace or a lively evening of drinks and dancing. The large outdoor terrace area offers excellent sunset views and features a lit-up bar and plentiful seating. Iris also has a light and airy indoor space with minimalist décor and lush greenery, a tranquil oasis of calm from the lively ambience of the city outside.

The extensive international menu has much on offer, with everything from elegant Japanese cuisine to hearty meaty dishes. Begin your meal with grilled octopus, soft shell crab bao, lobster tacos or a wagyu sando, for a truly indulgent start. Alternatively, take a look at the Japanese selection for some bites of urumaki, sashimi or ceviche. For the main event, there is a variety of meat, fish and vegetarian mains, including A6 Australian wagyu steak, jumbo prawns with orange butter and rocket, and truffle rigatoni. If you’d prefer something lighter, there are several vibrant salads like chicken soba, king crab salad or blue cheese salad with a Champagne vinaigrette dressing. Finish with a few mochi, French pain perdu or get the dessert platter to taste a selection of Iris’s signatures.

To complement your meal, there is an impressive international wine list, showcasing some particularly renowned vintages and a few varieties of Sake, with plenty of wines available by the glass. The extensive spirit selection is joined by an imaginative signature cocktail list and includes innovative concoctions such as the Portoro which combines Jameson Irish Whiskey, Pedro Ximenez, Amaro Averna, green pea essence, lime juice and ginger ale.
