Smooth Jazz and Fine Dining – Rams Head Tavern

Since 1989, the Rams Head has served the freshest food possible, preparing each menu item from scratch, daily. Their steaks are aged Black Angus beef and they use fresh (never frozen) chicken, fish and crab. They’re proud of quality of their food and their team philosophy- to provide you with the best service possible.

They’re certain you’ll agree that what makes Rams Head unique is their commitment to great food, great beer in a casual environment perfect for an afternoon with friends or a special affair. Their exceptional atmosphere is open 7 days a week, serving appetizers, lunch, dinner and a full bar as well as Sunday brunch. Plus, the entire menu is available for take-out.

The menu is pretty long, with lots of variety, mostly consisting of American grill/bar food. Being in Annapolis, they have some regional influences on their food such as crab mac and cheese or crab dip. They are affiliated with Fordham Brewery, so they have many of those beers as well as others available.  The atmosphere inside is fun and lively, with a beautiful patio out back for warm weather, and some sidewalk tables for people watching.

Support the Smooth Jazz in Rams Head Tavern featuring such artists like Walter Beasley, The Dazz Band, Russ Freeman and the Rippingtons, Acoustic Alchemy and many more.

Dubai is a city and emirate in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Dubai is the most populous emirate of the seven emirates of United Arab Emirates. Dubai alone has more than 70 shopping malls, including the world’s largest shopping mall, Dubai Mall. The city draws large numbers of shopping tourists from countries within the region and from as far as Eastern Europe, Africa and the Indian Subcontinent.

Dubai has a rich collection of buildings and structures of various architectural styles.  As a result of the boom, modern Islamic – and world – architecture has literally been taken to new levels in skyscraper building design and technology. Dubai now boasts more completed or topped-out skyscrapers higher than any other city. A culmination point was reached in 2010 with the completion of the Burj Khalifa (Khalifa Tower), now by far the world’s tallest building at 829.84 m (2,722.57 ft). Dubai is also the city with more than 382 hotels. Here you find the ultimate luxury.

The Festival will be held in Dubai Festival City, a large residential, business and entertainment development.
