The centrally positioned 10-metre long curved lively Main Nonsmoking Bar is a central focal point upon entering, with its wooden bar top and interesting wooden high chairs; and offers the perfect spot for pre-dinner drinks, including the Sleeping Dragon and Kimono cocktails.
The Zengo beverage menu features innovative approaches to classic hand-muddled cocktails, each with its own distinctive and interesting presentation, as well as wines and Japanese sakes. The beverage menu also boasts a fine selection of high-class Chinese teas. if you are at the bar then you enjoy prime views of the bartender carving the ice-ball used in drinks, a skill that takes time and patience to master.
Onto the Smoking Bar and a more intimate bar setting awaits, with its striking sunken fireplace and the area offers the perfect place for post-dinner drinks, with signature Zengo beverages including the flavoursome Javanese Mist and Japanese Kiss.
Moving outside to the terrace area and the open plan space is filled with restaurant and lounge seating, offering views over the gardens and Arabian Gulf and is the perfect setting to enjoy the chilled beats of resident DJ. The Terrace Bar sets the theme, with a U-shaped bar including a unique flammable bar counter, which can be lit up to compliment the bartenders flaring with fire to create a real sense of theatre and atmosphere.
Those looking for light bites in the bar and lounge area are also catered for, with a menu including favourites such as the ever-popular edamame beans and Tempura Prawns to name a few.
