It replaces Yuan, which will close this week…

Earlier this month we were saddened by the news that popular pan-Asian restaurant, Hakkasan Dubai, had closed up shop at its Jumeirah Emirates Towers location.

Well, it appears that the closure was to be very short-lived as the Dubai-branch of the world-famous restaurant chain has announced that it will be making a triumphant return later this year, and in fine form to boot.

Hakkasan Dubai will be joining the roster of other fine establishments at Atlantis on the Palm Jumeirah in September, before moving to The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences upon completion towards the end of 2019.

The upscale Asian restaurant will replace Yuan, which closes its doors this week.

The menus at the new location will offer Hakkasan’s signature dishes such as Peking Duck, Hakka Steamed Dim Sum and Charcoal Grilled Silver Cod with Champagne and Honey, as well as a selection of innovative dishes, unique to Hakkasan at Atlantis.

“We are very excited to start this journey with Atlantis, offering all-encompassing experience drawing on Hakkasan Group’s global expertise in combining hospitality and entertainment in innovative and memorable ways,” comments Nick McCabe, CEO of Hakkasan Group.

Welcome back Hakkasan and bring on September, we say.
