Pink African Night at The City Grill
We were invited to experience the Pink African Night that takes place every Sunday from 8pm – 12am.
The City Grill is located at the Atrium City, Downtown Dubai which portrays elegance and luxury with its dark brown themed decor with a furnace burning away. The place has a dim lighting that makes it perfect to grab a drink or wind down after a busy day. You can choose to sit at the bar if you are there just for the drinks or you can opt for the comfy sofa style seating to hang out with friends or a high table if you are with a large group.
After 9pm there is a live singer who will brighten the evening with some great solo performances on the recent hits or you could request a song of your choice as well. We were delighted to see Claudia perform and she just uplifted the whole atmosphere of the place with her lovely voice.

Its a Ladies Night where all the ladies can relish three complimentary drinks whilst the menfolk joining the party get a 40% discount. If you end up being famished, there is an African Treat waiting to make its way to your stomachs that is priced at AED 140.
Our night began with some complimentary bread served with spicy mayo and olives.
For the drinks we had a tonic and gin, vodka and prosecco (rose wine). All the drinks seemed to classic options and we would have loved to see more variety of cocktails. The staff was very generous to accommodate our request of changing one of the drinks to a mocktail since one of us does not drink.

It’s not only drinks 🍸 and music 🎶 , how can we 👭skip on the #food? It is a #Meatfest 🍖 @thecitygrilldubai you guys 🙆🏻♀️, succulent and juicy steak, short ribs, lamb chop, chicken wings and sausage with a side of your choice ~ fries 🍟 or salad 🥗 priced at AED 140. #PinkAfricanNights
The African Treat is a meaty platter that includes beef ribs, lamb chop, chicken, steak, boerwors and a side dish of your choice i.e. (salad or fries). All the meat was perfectly cooked. The ribs were tender and juicy. The steak is prepared according to your preference, we chose ours to be medium well done which was perfectly made. We got salad and fries each along with our platters. The salad was freshly prepared with some balsamic vinegar dressing that created a nice balance for the meat. Whilst the fries are always a great companion, crisp and delicious.
Our server Ntando did an amazing job of hosting us.
The price is reasonable for the portion and quality being offered.
We will be back for some more African vibes and drinks with more ladies in tow.
