Tried out: Movie Monday at Tribeca

Last Monday we have attended the very first evening of Tribeca Movie Monday. Tribeca is located in the center of the Jumeirah Beach Residence inside the JA Ocean View Hotel. Parking is easy and friendly as the accommodating valet parking service is ready to assist you. Else you can park as well in The Beach Underground Parking if you fancy (paid of course).

Tribeca is a restaurant & bar featuring wholesome and organic food and alcoholic beverages, live entertainment and an impressive collection of art from local artists which is also for sale. A Mediterranean cuisine, a healthy eating throughout with a new York minded Theme is bringing a modern American style to JBR that made a Dubai twist on a cool urban vibe chichangout. The word Tribeca originated means:’ Triangle Below Canal’ which discribes a corner of the big Apple, better said in Lower Manhatten.

Tribeca has been launched 6 months back and it’s doing well in terms of customers satisfaction along with good offers, newly developed gigs and good programmes such as kitchen, bar & arts. Talented musicians on weekends are playing songs in live show, ladies nights on Tuesdays, Fridays brunch, nice paintings made by selected and professional painters, encouraging those artists to expose their paints for sale within the same place. The Tribeca team launched a new ideas of bringing out the best American movies on their 2.5m/3m screen that are airing every Mondays at a package price of AED 50 including one drink and one organic popcorn per person. The cool ambiance of putting cinema and a chic bar together gives a great ambiance and the feeling of having a home cinema along with bar and restaurant atmosphere. It was cool having Bluetooth headsets making customers more comfortable being able to listen and follow the movie without the needs that everybody around you is quiet. It feels like you are in the cinema at home.

We really appreciated the warm and welcoming along with the accommodating staff who served us during our visit to the bar/ lounge cinema. We even got a show around  by the Manager Miss. Michelle who allowed us to see and check all above mentioned information about the restaurant in and out. She explained in details about Tribeca and the newly launched Movie Monday created by the team.

We enjoyed the Movie Night having had a rather unconventional cinematic experience that gives you the impression of watching cinema at home sitting in a very comfortable Leather Sofa & Traditional table and having your food and drinks served in the same time according to your choice. While we were watching the first Movie of the Tribeca Movie Monday (Pulp Fiction) , we were able to place orders for our food and beverage:

  • Tribeca Burger & Fries: Organic ground beef, Cajun, mayonnaise, tomato, caramelized onion and Cheddar. How Cool is the presentation of the Burger?
  • Tribeca Hot Dog: sweet potato fries, organic beef sausage, bell peppers, shredded carrots, beetroot and feta cheese. As well here the presentation with the News Paper Wrap is soo cool.
  • Tribeca Eton Mess with meringue strawberries and cream.
  • Tribeca Organic Ice cream mango and pistachio.
  • Tribeca organic white wine and the organic popcorn.

Overall our visit to Tribeca and its Movie Monday was perfectly great and we were extremely satisfied, we were amazed by the 3 in 1 concept that has been offered by Tribeca and we have really enjoyed having food and drinks with popcorn and burgers, dessert and ice cream while watching the movie using the provided Bluetooth headsets. This was awesome.

If you want to try it out now as well, here is the Movie schedule for the next week which you can find of course as well in our Events section:

  • 24th August – Wall Street
  • 31st August – Zoolander
  • 7th September – Back to the Future – Part 1
  • 14th September – Rocky IV
  • 21th September – Star Wars

I am looking forward for Star Wars, and would certainly watch Back to the Future if I could be sure part 2 and 3 will follow, or how about all 3 in one night ? Or even better put on Forrest Gump.
