Sponsored: Paru, the latest project from Michelin-star chef Akira Back, is now open at Caesars Resort Bluewaters Dubai…

Caesars Bluewaters Dubai has added yet another celebrity chef to its repertoire, this time in the form of Michelin-starred chef Akira Back. The Korean snowboarder-turned-culinary master has designed a delectable modern Japanese menu that delivers a fresh and unique take on the classic cuisine.

Paru is a modern Japanese restaurant located on the stunning rooftop of Caesars Resort Bluewaters Dubai. Surrounded by ocean views and the unbeatable JBR skyline, get ready for Paru to become your new favourite sundowner hotspot.

Inside, the restaurant has Japanese influences everywhere you look. Playing on the name, which translates to ‘pearl’ in English, Paru has incorporated ornate pearl decorations into a mesmerising crystal structure. There are three distinct sections within the space; a dining room, a bar and sushi counter, as well two alfresco terraces.

Although the intricate ceiling of stark white origami flowers is the focal point of the restaurant, the bar’s modern mural adds a personal touch, adorned by the artwork of Akira Back’s mother.

The two terraces are the perfect place to sit back and watch the world go by, there’s a chilled lounge terrace complete with comfortable wicker sofas and daily shisha; while the other terrace is perfect to enjoy a full dinner experience, taking in the incredible views.

From the kitchen, you can expect an array of sharing-style dishes, from suzuki ceviche, crispy rice and popcorn ebi to black pepper wagyu ribeye and teriyaki jidori. Influenced by the streets of Tokyo, Paru encourages you to take a seat at the bar and watch the sushi master at work before being served fresh tuna, salmon, scallops and shrimp tempura.

Easing you nicely into the weekend is Paru’s new geisha themed ladies’ night – Maiko Night, every Wednesday. Ladies can enjoy uplifting tunes from 7pm to 11pm, whilst sipping on four complimentary drinks and enjoying 25 per cent off the delectable modern Japanese menu.

Once the weekend arrives, it’s time to take your night to a new level, as the resident DJ provides the soundtrack to an unforgettable evening, while taking in the glorious sunset views. The only thing that can make the experience better is to taste your way through Paru’s signature cocktail list of tasty tipples infused with Japanese flavours.
