Seven F&B outlets have opened at Club Vista Mare, Nakheel’s AED 120 million beachfront dining and leisure complex on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah, first announced in February 2013.
Cuisine on offer includes Italian, Middle Eastern, European, American Nikkei (Peruvian-Japanese) and Ethiopian, with a variety of new brands represented.
Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said: “Club Vista Mare is yet another unique addition to our ever-growing range of new projects at our flagship project, Palm Jumeirah.
“We have delivered an exceptional new venue that offers a diverse collection of dining options in a stunning setting, and further enhances Palm Jumeirah’s position as a world-leading destination for spectacular waterfront recreation.”
Breeze is a beach grill concept, including a raw bar and deli counter, while Aji offers Nikkei cuisine (Japanese-Peruvian).
The other outlets are premium seafood restaurant Ibn Al Bahr; Abyat, which serves traditional Arabic cuisine; The Tap House, with modern European cuisine and American comfort food; Simply Italian, serving traditional Italian fare; and Gursha, the first Ethiopian restaurant in the area.
Located between the Shoreline Apartments and Tiara Residences on the eastern side of the island, Club Vista Mare spans 50,000ft2 and seats 2,000 guests at a time.
Each restaurant has indoor and outdoor terrace seating, with some featuring seating on the beach. There are 250 parking spaces available.
The Club Vista Mare F&B complex complements Palm Views East and West, two Nakheel-owned restaurant destinations that opened on Palm Jumeirah last year.
Nakheel also operates clubs at Jumeirah Islands and Jebel Ali, with more on the way.
Nakheel’s master developments include Palm Jumeirah, The World, Deira Islands, Jumeirah Islands, Jumeirah Village, Jumeirah Park, Jumeirah Heights, The Gardens, Discovery Gardens, Al Furjan, Warsan Village, Dragon City, International City, Jebel Ali Gardens and Nad Al Sheba.
Together, these span more than 15,000 hectares and currently provide homes for over 270,000 people.
The developer’s growing hospitality project portfolio comprises 16 hotels and serviced apartment developments with more than 5,200 rooms between them at various locations in Dubai, including Palm Jumeirah, Deira Islands, Ibn Battuta Mall, Jumeirah Village and Dragon City.
