Escape the Status Quo Above Ground and Discover Dubai’s Newest Underground Bar: KnoX
X marks the spot, but you need to be a real rulebreaker to enter Dubai’s newest underground bar! KnoX takes you away from the monotony of everyday life and into a hidden den of forbidden fun, filled with tempting tipples, tasty bites and irresistible vibes, fuelled by the very best live music and entertainment, for all the tribe. Get ready to enter a secret social space where boring is banned, anything can happen, and rules are made to be broken.
Give two ‘KnoX’ at the large metal door and leave your inhibitions behind! Before descending the steps and immersing yourself in the underground intrigue, familiarise yourself with the KnoX rules, and ask yourself: “Am I a rulebreaker or a rule-keeper?” Remember, we reward rulebreakers at KnoX, so once you’ve made your choice, walk down through the retro power-station-styled box and into a venue that captures your imagination like nothing else can.
With stylish yet comfortable leather couches, classic armchairs, high dining tables, vibrant neon signs, and captivating electrical visuals – KnoX is your escape from the status quo! The bold colour scheme of greys, oranges, pinks, and blues, along with humorous wall features, effortlessly blends old-school cool with contemporary mischief, to take you away from the hustle and bustle above ground.
Leave your fat-free and sugar-free notions outside, because, when you come to KnoX, it’s all about feasting on generous portions of real food: food that tastes so good, you’ll take the word ‘diet’ out of your vocabulary. Featuring the tastiest selection of international dishes, KnoX’s menu is stacked full of delicious bites from the fryer, beasts of Burgers, tantalising Tacos, and indulgent Desserts. If you’re looking for a true hunger-buster, the Big KnoX, a 15cm high double beef burger with beef bacon, Provolone cheese, onion rings, and tomato relish, is capable of conquering even the most ravenous of appetites.
Behind KnoX’s bar, you’ll find an expert team of mixologists, mixing up a storm in cocktail form. From the handcrafted brilliance of The Old Fashioned Collection and traditional appeal of The Classics, to the outrageous flavours of The Cocktails and unbridled originality of the homemade infused-spirits, there’s an option to thrill the taste buds of every rulebreaker at KnoX. With an extensive assortment of spirits from across the globe, along with an inspired selection of grape, bubbles, hops, aperitives, handcrafted liqueurs, and much more to choose from – you’re guaranteed to find the ideal tipple to fuel your underground enjoyment.
Whether you’re looking to bust some moves to cult classics, anthems from the 80s and timeless greats, or sing along to modern hits and contemporary chart-toppers, KnoX has the perfect fix for your music cravings all week long, along with a resident DJ (Wednesdays – Fridays). You’ll even find plenty of entertainment at the bar, with the Old Fashioned Lucky Game. Just roll the dice to create your bespoke Old Fashioned and see what happens. There are 216 combinations of spirits, sweeteners and bitters, with unique flavour profiles depending on what you roll.
