Cargo Opens In Dubai Marina

April 1, 2014

You wouldn’t normally associate the word ‘cargo’ with casual dining and drinks in a sophisticated setting. It normally conjures up images of freighter planes and cross-country rail networks. But Dubai often gives news meanings to old words. Cargo is the latest opening at Pier 7, the current hotspot in Dubai Marina. Located adjacent to Marina Mall, Cargo finds itself in good company with Atelier M above and Abd El Wahab below. Sourcing inspiration from a 1960s Hong Kong harbour-side eatery, the interior of raw steel, concrete and weathered wood contrasts with the captivating and glossy views of the marina’s yachts and skyscrapers. Street food-inspired Asian cuisine dominates the menu. The outdoor terrace is the real selling point – just as with all the venues in Pier 7 – offering near 360 degrees views across the marina and Sheikh Zayed Road. We reckon it will become the new after work socialising hot spot, at least before summer arrives and things get too, well, hot. [gallery link="none" ids="1531,1529"]
