The newest addition to the Conrad Dubai, Kimpo is a cool and trendy Korean street food restaurant and bar that will become your new favorite hangout.

Neon pink lighting and colorful art adorn this trendy venue that brings Korean street food to Dubai. South Korean-born chef Sung Choul Lee has crafted an authentic menu of fried chicken, kimchi and tacos of slow-cooked minced meat. All the best fixtures of Korean street food can be found at this hip restaurant, and the Instagram-perfect interior has been specifically designed to make you want to spend the whole night at this special hangout. A self-proclaimed “chicken and hops” bar, this is not the place for a fancy champagne-based cocktail or a seven-course meal. This is the place for you and your friends to meet up, share some fun and indulgent food that packs an impressive flavor punch, and pair it all with a refreshing Asahi draught beer or a Hitachino White Ale.

Beer lovers will rejoice, the Asian-inspired beer selection is mighty and will allow you to sample different flavor profiles with every new dish. There are even two beer-specific cocktails on the menu; the Korean Brew and the Korean Michelada, a flavor-blasting mix of Korean fermented chili paste, spices, lager and lime. Don’t be afraid of its spiciness or ask the friendly and helpful staff to take it down a notch to suit your tastebuds. Always promoting local libations, the cocktail list is small but full of interesting flavors that pair beautifully with each bite. Order the Ume Spirtz or the Soju & Lemonade and be transported to gritty and lively Seoul.

The raving reviews got it right, this new fixture of downtown Dubai is the cool, edgy and fuss-free bar that you will want to bring all your friends to. Sports fans will also be glad to enjoy live screening of games on the big screens before getting moving on the dance floor, with live DJs performing most nights until 2am.
