American publishing house Condé Nast has confirmed GQ Bar is to open at JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, the world’s tallest hotel, in October.

The third international outlet for the brand after Moscow and Istanbul, it follows the recent official launch of VOGUE Café at The Dubai Mall.

“It’s a very exciting time at Condé Nast International Restaurants,” said Stuart Nielsen, director of the division.

“In less than a month, we have opened our first restaurant in the Middle East, VOGUE Café at The Dubai Mall, and now after securing a magnificent location, we’re able to share details of our second venture in the region.”

According to Rupprecht Queitsch, JW Marriott Marquis Dubai general manager, the GQ Bar will become another highlight in Dubai’s vibrant lounge bar scene.

It will come to life in a vast 10,700 sq ft space designed for the tech savvy business customers looking for a leisurely experience.

The venue will be set across two floors and will offer connectivity, TVs and a digital area. Menus will feature contemporary cuisine created by Condé Nast International Restaurants’ chef and deputy director, Gary Robinson.

"We are very proud to announce GQ Bar opening in the second half of this year within the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai," remarked Seehal Shah, Co-Founder of Inspired Brands.

"GQ Bar exemplifies the unparalleled quality of the brand in a sleek and stylish venue. GQ magazine is all about class and sophistication and the bar will reflect this in an interactive environment of great music paired with fantastic food and drinks.

"Together with Condé Nast International, we at Inspired Brands are dedicated to building Condé Nast International Restaurants’ reputation for brand excellence within the region."
