Incredible new beach club and dining destination BLA BLA is set to open in JBR in December. The space it occupies is vast and it’s set to be your new favourite hangout spot. With twenty bars, three restaurants and one beach club, complete with a pool, all in one place, you won’t need to go anywhere else. In phase one of opening, the beach club plus eight bars with different themes and three restaurants will be revealed. In phase two, a secret second concept is to open.


Le Kong

Where: Address Dubai Marina 

Exciting new upscale restaurant, Le Kong, is set to open alongside (literally) the Wane by SoMiya pool club. Whilst we don’t yet know much about the new venue, we do know that diners will be treated to an array of French-Mediterranean-Japanese cuisine, plus some incredible views of the Dubai Marina from its position on the fourth floor terrace of the Address Dubai Marina hotel.

Top Golf

Where: Emirates Golf Club

Famed American-born entertainment destination, Top Golf, is set to open up a branch at Dubai’s Emirates Golf Club later on this year. Fun for everyone, this is a celebrity-loved sports-entertainment concept that combines friendly competition with music, drinks, food and loads more.

Phileas Foggs

Where: Address Montgomerie

Spanning an impressive 32,000 square feet, Phileas Foggs will occupy a big space at the Address Montgomerie. Set to become the go-to neighbourhood hangout, it’s split into five bespoke spaces; The Orangery (restaurant), sports pub, garden, amphitheatre and kids area. Designed as both a family-friendly space by day and idyllic date-night spot by night, guests can look forward to an array of seasonal community events throughout the year.


Lucky Fish Dubai

Where: Palm West Beach, Palm Jumeirah

As yet, there isn’t much information around about Lucky Fish Dubai, which will be an entirely new concept in Dubai when it opens on West Palm Beach. On its Facebook page, it’s described as ‘a tropical seaside restaurant and lounge, featuring rustic island style elements combined with luxurious decor.’ It will share the same ‘bungalow’ as Aprons & Hammers, but will sit on the left-hand side.

Orange Chameleon

Where: Palm West Beach, Palm Jumeirah

Orange Chameleon opened in DIFC as a 24-hour lounge, back in November 2019. The restaurant-by-day, party-lounge-by-night concept promised dinner, drinks and shisha around the clock. We’re not sure if the newest venue will have the same opening hours, but we think we can expect some similar dishes on the menu, such as octopus, lobster linguine and tuna tartare.

Caviar Kaspia

Famed Parisian eatery Caviar Kaspia is set to open an outpost in Dubai’s DIFC in early 2021. Unsurprisingly, judging by the name, the restaurant is renowned for its top-shelf caviar and smoked fish, alongside other luxury seafood. After seeing images of the other Caviar Kaspia restaurants around the world, we think we can expect a seriously sleek restaurant, well-worthy of DIFC’s luxe dining reputation.
