A new “underground” bar, HOBO, is opening in Dubai this Monday February 29.

The so-called hidden venue is located in a car park at Nassima Royal Hotel in Sheikh Zayed Road, with only a doorman at the entrance.

According to the brand, the lounge has a strict “no photo” press policy and is meant to attract speakeasy crowds like Dubai’s “creative communities” and “modern nomads.”


Featuring a live DJ, it will consist of ten tables and will hold a limited capacity of 100 people.

HOBO will be open from 11pm onwards on Monday nights only.

It was created by UAE-based hospitality group Bulldozer, the firm behind VIP Room and Movida.
