Dubai-founded concept, Play Restaurant and Lounge, will open its first international location at Hôtel Barrière Le Majestic Cannes, France, in the summer of 2017.
The Cannes restaurant will be a permanent pop-up during the peak summer months, from July to September.
Play Dining Group chairman, Rashid Galadari commented: “When we were creating the concept behind Play, we always knew that the brand would one day be ready for the international stage. It was just a matter of time until we found the right partners to initiate our global expansion plans. The South of France is just the beginning.”
First launched in January 2016 by Play Dining Group, the homegrown brand features a menu that fuses East and West, dubbed ‘Mediterrasian cuisine’.
Play has a dedicated Research & Development kitchen and a culinary team of 41 chefs.
The restaurant is located on the 36th floor of the H Hotel and features a gourmet restaurant with elevated private dining area, a lounge area and a cocktail bar.
