OW lounge in DXB

Hi all,
Flying BA F next month. LHR to DXB I'll know what to expect, but any options of lounges on the return from DXB to LHR? I'm silver with BA. Am I allowed to use the Qatar lounge I DXB (actually as I type this I'm working wondering if the Qatar lounge is even open any more with the embargo).
What's the F lounge like in DXB? Worth arriving early for (afternoon flight).

The QR lounge is closed at the moment. You'll use the BA lounge. There is a Concorde Lounge within the main BA lounge, but don't expect too much (based on the comments on here - I've not experienced it).

The Qatar lounge in DXB is closed because of the embargo.

Not only closed but all signs of QR removed and/or covered up!

The CCR area in the DXB lounge is a small bar area with free-pour champagne and some food. It is a perfectly fine place to spend an hour or two, but definitely no longer

The CCR aection is pleasant with champagne. Worth an hour or so but not too long. Much better than the old lounge.
