I went to GQ bar tonight with a group of friends for the Sunday Sushi promotion. This basically consisted of 2 options; all you can eat sushi (100AED) or all you can eat sushi & sashimi (150AED). We went for the latter, and it was great choice! The staff were very attentive, changing ashtrays on a regular basis, removing empty... More

Stayed at the JW Marriott Marquis and visited the GQ Bar a few times. Nice location, great bar over two floors, it is an ideal place to meet for social events or just to unwind with a drink after hours. There is a restaurant, a lounge and a bar. Nice!

It could be b/c I am an American and the waitress was Eastern European with an heir of wanna-be european culturally superiority. Either way, my wife and I went on the all-you-can-eat sushi and the food was incredible. some of the best sushi i have had, including multiple NoBu locations. However, the service was so obnoxiously bad, it made the... More

Went there for a nice drink and chat as they play cool house tunes on Tuesdays. We are sitting on a high table, the waiter is serving our 2nd round, he accidentally spilled almost the whole drink on my partner. it was an embarrassing moment but accidents happens. what was surprising that he didn't bother to help her with napkins...

One of my favourite places in dubai. Definitely recommend the cocktails, they present them so well. The food, especially the sushi is some of the nicest I have had before. the ambience too is lovely, seems very stylish but for a reasonable price!

I don't like how this bar is set up and managed. Upstairs, downstairs, two sections in each. I'm from California and this bar feels like it belongs in LA- it's not a good thing. Hostesses aren't friendly and welcoming. We were shown the main part of the bar (downstairs) which is small and was filled to capacity. Arrived at approx... More
