Leon is a daringly fun speakeasy-inspired bar just off the main lobby at the newly-opened Dubai EDITION hotel. It’s an exciting juxtaposition to the rest of the hotel with its provocative and punchy blocks of color against a dark background. It’s the hidden gem of the iconic hotel with a mysterious yet exclusive vibe.

An ‘if you know, you know’ secret bar that comfortably seats 50 guests and provides a modern clandestine appeal. Upon entering Leon through a dark timber door, a blue banquette organically cloaks the bar. The monolithic bar is carefully wrapped in vein-matching black St Laurent marble. The bright pink bar stools look impressively urban against the intricate mosaic flooring. At the rear of the bar, mesh-fronted vintage cabinets discreetly house a collection of rare liquors adding to the sense of mystery. The bar is reminiscent of an old speakeasy on an old, cobbled street.
