Located on genteel St. James’s Place, DUKES London is chiefly famous for its inimitably British atmosphere and the outstanding martinis served in its bar. Now an outpost has opened in, of all places, Dubai. Unlike the 90-room townhouse hotel in London, DUKES Dubai has 506 accommodations spread across 15 floors of a tower on the Palm Jumeirah artificial archipelago. The outdoor infinity pool and private beach may come as a surprise to devotees of the original property. However, the bar does serve martinis shaken by mixologists trained in St. James’s by legendary head bartender Alessandro Palazzi.
