Jumeirah Islands Clubhouse (JIC), a new dining, lifestyle and fitness hub has opened its doors. Open seven days a week from 8am till late, JIC boasts a collection of restaurants and leisure facilities.
As part of an extensive revamp, the clubhouse has undergone major refurbishing work. The entire facility has been upgraded and improved as part of a collaboration between Sunset Hospitality Group (SHG) and leading Dubai-based master developer Nakheel.
SHG was founded in 2011 with a vision to create unique experiences through a diverse mix of concepts and acclaimed multinational brands. At the newly opened JIC, SHG invites guests to enjoy homemade Italian favourites at Isola Ristorante, as well as comfort food at Joe’s Backyard Gastropub.
Taking its culinary inspiration from the iconic Mediterranean islands of Sardinia, Capri and Sicily, Isola Ristorante will present a menu of modern Italian classics. Guests can enjoy the restaurant’s interior and relaxed ambiance or in the cooler months opt to dine al fresco with a table on the picturesque terrace deck which offers views of the Jumeirah Islands neighborhood. Isola Ristorante is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner from 8am to 11pm.
Joe’s Backyard Gastropub will serve diners with a menu of comfort-food paired alongside a range of drinks. Groups of friends can enjoy foosball, pool tables, darts and large screen TVs showing live sports. The eatery, which also boasts an outdoor terrace for winter, will be open to guests from 4pm to 1am during the week and from 12pm until 1am on weekends.
Antonio Gonzalez, CEO of SHG, says: “Excitement for the opening of the new Jumeirah Islands Clubhouse has been growing for some time and we are happy to announce that the wait is over. JIC has been carefully conceptualized and designed as an inclusive and all-round lifestyle development that perfectly appeals to diners, fitness enthusiasts and everyday visitors. We can’t wait for everybody to experience JIC.”
Gail Sangster, Assets Director at Nakheel, says: “We’re pleased to be partnering with Sunset Hospitality Group for the highly anticipated launch of the premium F&B destination, Jumeirah Islands Clubhouse. This well-rounded development is an excellent addition to the city’s first-class F&B destinations and a welcome new attraction to Nakheel’s Jumeirah Islands Community. We’re confident that the Jumeirah Islands’ community members as well as residents across neighbouring communities will find this clubhouse extremely enjoyable and can’t wait for them to make it a regular part of their lifestyle routine.”
