WU, located at The Art Hotel & Resort has been a go-to beachside restaurant & lounge for us this year with their upscale ambience, modern interior and great food. Every week they step up their scene with amazing music and great vibes, especially when we recently visited!

On October 6th, WU hosted its first ever “Queen’s Night” dedicated to all the queens in Bahrain. The promotion invites all women to avail discounts of 50% on selected beverages and 25% on platters. Each queen who steps in is welcomed with a drink, a tiara and leaves her handprint to commemorate her presence. How regal is that! The energy stayed high at the event’s kickstart with all of Bahrain’s top socialites at the opening.

To pair with the special theme, WU brought two amazing artists, live DJ Elena and the stunning UK singer Tamar, who performed some powerful feminine tracks with her booming, exuberant voice and dance moves. We got up ourselves and danced with her and that contagious energy! Tamar will be performing twice a month during Queen’s Night so you better check it out!

As the night went on, we had a chance to try WU’s restaurant menu, which featured international cuisine platters and sushi rolls. They had something for everyone, even the vegans! The fusion food was delicious, light and perfect to eat while partying the night away.

Throughout the week, the events keep going at the restaurant and lounge; hosting a wide range of themed events including Sushi night, Steak Night, Fuego night, as well as exclusive beach parties at The Art Hotel’s pristine beachside. Wealso attended Fuego night, where a live Latin band performed and the dancers were ongoing until the night’s end, the atmosphere transported us to a Puerto Rican fiesta, no doubt.

With such a diverse crowd, you really can’t miss out on making a visit to WU. Make sure to follow WU Restaurant & Lounge on Instagram @wulounge to stay tuned for all their updates and what’s in store.
