Sobremesa brings Spanish cuisine and cocktails to Souk Al Bahar

The cocktails have been created by one of the World’s 50 Best Bars, El Copitas Bar.  

It’s time to say hola to a new restaurant in Dubai. The Mexican meets Spanish restaurant, Sobremesa, is coming to the city. Opening in Souk Al Bahar, the venue will serve modern gourmet cuisine with meat, delicacies and cocktails.

Sobremesa translates literally to upon the table. The idea comes from the Spanish tradition of relaxing after a meal, and letting the conversation (and cocktails) flow freely. So, instead of being turned away once you’ve finished your food, you’ll be encouraged to stay.

Sobremesa’s food menu draws inspiration from Mexican and Spanish recipes. The drink’s menu has been created in partnership with El Copitas Bar, which is a bar in Saint Petersburg, Russia. The Mexican bar is known for its collection of spirits and creative cocktails. For five years in a row, it has featured on the World’s 50 Best Bars list. To add to the atmosphere, in the evening, there will be live music inspired by mariachi bands and carnivals.

So far, we know that Sobremesa will be designed by the award-winning architecture firm, Da Bureau. Spanning 200 square metres, the décor will boast a European aesthetic. Plus, it will have a terrace with a view of the water features in Souk Al Bahar.  


Souk Al Bahar is a Middle Eastern-inspired marketplace, which is home to a range of restaurants and bars. The indoor souk includes venues overlooking the waterfront promenade, and alleyways lined shops selling Arabic antiques, jewellery and perfumes.

The opening date for Sobremesa in Dubai has not yet been confirmed. Check in with FACT for the latest restaurant news.
