Esquire Townhouse is back. Here’s what to expect for 2018
For those who missed last year’s inaugural event, The Esquire Townhouse is a physical representation of the Esquire Middle East brand. We’ve got tailors (courtesy of Sartor), grooming handled by the folks at Barberia Italiana, and fashion, taken care of by menswear’s one-man-brand; Hackett.
Elsewhere, we’ll have some of the world’s finest watches on display (courtesy of Bremont) along with a never-before-seen timepiece that is due to be unveiled live from the Townhouse (stay tuned).
Moreschi – one of Italy’s most illustrious shoemakers – is bringing one of the brand’s most talented craftsmen to Townhouse (lettings guests see just how much effort goes into every pair of shoes the atelier makes).

And rounding off what looks to be a big year for Italian brands at the Esquire Townhouse, it’s the legendary automotive marquis of Alfa Romeo.
The brand will be showing off some of its latest and greatest motors, as well as turning its room inside the Townhouse into a veritable museum, highlighting everything the brand has done for the world of motoring in its more than 100-years of existence.
And what would an Esquire Townhouse be without some delicious food? We have food and drink from some of the best restaurants here in the Middle East. Alici – one of the hottest new eateries in the city – will be treating guests to a pop-up tasting. And as it’s yet to open its doors here in the region, our guests will be the first to ever taste this brand new seafood concept’s menu.
Il Borro Tuscan Bistro will be serving up delicious and authentic Italian fare, alongside the talented bar staff at Morimoto Dubai – who are tasked with mixing together some delicious beverages. Rüya – Esquire’s Best Restaurant in the Middle East – is also onboard, and will be educating some of the region’s biggest foodies on just how tasty Anatolian cuisine can be.
Rounding off the three-day event is Blue Marlin Ibiza – who will no doubt be making the most of the laid-back outdoors area by the pool (and of course, that amazing view over Dubai’s Marina).
But, all play and no work(outs) will make Jack a fat boy. Which is why we’ve drafted in some of the exceptional machines from Technogym’s stable of exercise equipment. Not only will you be able to get up-close-and-personal with some of the Italian brand’s newest products, but also join the Esquire team in daily workouts on the lawn.
What else is going on inside Townhouse? The XXII Carat Emerald Villa on The Palm Jumeirah (overlooking Dubai Marina) is divided into designated sections; including food, style, grooming, watches, fitness, motors and entertainment.
Throughout the three-day event, pop-ups and activations are scheduled to allow brands to showcase their best and brightest to our smart and stylish Esquire audience.
While the event is invite-only, don’t fret. You can follow the entire event via our social media – Instagram, Facebook and YouTube – or right here.
Stay tuned for more information live from the Townhouse.
