CUE is an upscale restaurant and lounge with show-stopping performances at Sheraton Grand Hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road.
Dubai’s nightlife scene has seen a resurgence since the easing of COVID-19 restrictions in June. Many venues have had to pivot to offer restaurant experiences alongside live entertainment, with the concept of dinner shows proving popular with Dubai diners. New to the nightlife arena is CUE, an indoor nightlife venue from the team behind WHITE Dubai.
Located on the hotel’s ground floor and accessed via its own designated street entrance lies CUE. Accessed via a private elevator, the venue is situated behind an alluring blue velvet curtain that alludes to the idea of dinner and a show. With a capacity for 200 guests, the decor is understated yet classy and featured white and grey marble and burgundy walls. The furniture is sophisticated yet comfortable and offers the perfect vantage point for the entertainment that unfolds throughout the venue, in addition to an audio-visual system with a grid-like LED ceiling.
The menu at CUE Dubai features an array of globally inspired dishes, some of which are theatrically served to the table, including Mediterranean salt-crusted sea bass and a Flame-grilled Wagyu tomahawk steak. CUE’s burrata and pecorino gyoza and baked feta and spinach pie are among the starters to share. Those after a lighter option can enjoy a selection of salads, including grilled octopus and goat’s cheese in a walnut crust. While desserts include a mango dome sorbet topped with cotton candy and various artisanal homemade ice creams and sorbets. A focused and well-priced grape list and selection of cocktails are available to accompany CUE’s extensive food menu.
An exhilarating program of live shows and performances will offer a dinner and a show experience that is nothing short of spectacular. Expect a series of world-class acts, from dazzling aerial performances and heated fire shows to singers and dancers, with bespoke shows taking place nightly not only on the main stage but throughout the venue.
A roster of promotions includes a Wednesday Night Brunch, Friday Brunch and afterparty and a Saturday URBN Ladies Night, where ladies can enjoy three dishes from the chef’s selection and four selected beverages for AED 120.
CUE Dubai is open Saturday to Thursday, from 8pm to 2am and on Fridays, from 1pm to 2am.
