BBQ, Crabshack and Grill Featuring In-House Rodeo Snaps Open this Month
CLAW will serve up genuine Southern Hospitality in Souk Al Bahar
5 March 2013 – Dubai, United Arab Emirates; CLAW, opening in Souk Al Bahar this month, embodies America’s favorite style eatery featuring Southern hospitality and fun at its best with its in-house rodeo mechanical bull, BBQ smoker and all the US eats and treats that diners are craving.
With neon signs plastering the walls and paper tablecloths covering the tables, all manners go out the door the second diners walk in. Guests tie plastic bibs around their neck and order ribs, lobster, crabs and steaks from the UAE’s first genuine wood-chip smoker and pick up a wooden mallet to crush the seafood.
“Having lived in and travelled throughout the US I have always enjoyed the legendary Southern style cooking and hospitality and wanted to bring this concept to the UAE. The mood is fun, the vibe energetic, the food mouthwateringly delicious, and the cocktails… strong!” said Markus Thesleff, Co-Founder of Whissle.
“We’re rapidly expanding the Whissle hospitality portfolio to incorporate a range of concepts, which started with OKKU - soon to open in London, Casablanca and Saudi Arabia - as well as our beach club complex RIVA that also houses our gastro café concept Sophie’s,” continued Thesleff.
CLAW menu showstoppers will be the wide selection of lip smacking BBQ grilled meat and specialty steaks, as well as seafood buckets featuring mounds of fresh crabs, crawfish and shrimp. Favorite dishes on offer will include home-style clam chowder, alligator , sizzling fajitas and a huge selection of massive ‘killer’ burgers, and of course baby-back ribs and smoked chicken as well as spectacular steak, freshly shucked oysters (served naked, grilled or fried) and last but not least the killer Buffalo Wings.
There will be regular rib-eating and oyster guzzling competitions bringing the claws out as people hustle for Big Eat crown. The live band will jam out classic rock tunes and the screams of wannabe cowboys and cowgirls trying break the house rodeo record on the mechanical bull.
After diners are done sucking their fingers clean of BBQ sauce, crab meat and butter, and gnawed the last rib clean, they can grab a bucket of beer or a giant margarita and sit back to enjoy the huge selection of their favorite live sports on the widescreens while listen to the house band knock out their favorite song.
The drinks menu will be its own experience with an unrivalled selection of traditional and signature beverages all served in moonshine jars or giant pitchers, with one of the widest selections of tequilas and ‘sippin whiskeys’ in the city.
The huge outdoor terrace means that the party crowd can spill out, eat and drink with friends during the cooler months and enjoy being in the thick of Downtown with views of the fountains. As the night draws to an end, guys and girls can grab great CLAW gear on their way out to commemorate their visit.
Located in Souk al Bahar, CLAW is the perfect location to watch the madness of downtown Dubai and party with pals. With scenic views, open air terrace and great cocktails, visitors cannot pass up the chance to eat messy, delicious and addictive grills and seafood. Managed by the Whissle Group the ‘BBQ Crab Shack & Grill’ concept is loved the world over for the mix of drinks, food, music and crazy amounts of fun.
