Exclusive reveal: Inside BLA BLA, JBR's huge new beach club
We take you inside the venue with twenty bars, three restaurants, one beach club…
If there’s one thing Dubai does well, it’s boundary-pushing new venues, beach clubs, restaurants and dining concepts. When What’s On brought you the news first that BLA BLA, a colossal new beach club and dining destination was set to open at The Beach opposite JBR, it was met with a massive response.
Whilst the venue has been kept mostly under wraps, ready for its big reveal in December (date yet to be confirmed), we’ve seen it with our very own eyes. We’re bringing you the exclusive first reveal or sneak peek, if you will, at the awesome new venue, which has its very own giant slide, leading from the top floor to the ground floor. We’re not kidding.
With twenty bars, three restaurants and one huge beach club, all in one place, you won’t need to go anywhere else. The day-to-night destination will help you to make the day what you want it to be. Beach day? No problem. Causal dining? Sorted. Sundowners? Absolutely. Nightlife? Got you covered.
There will be two phases of opening, with plenty of surprises along the way. In Phase One, the idyllic beach club plus three restaurants and ten of the twenty bars will be open and ready to welcome you. The JBR venue overlooks the Gulf Sea, Bluewaters Island and Ain Dubai, or the ‘Dubai Eye’ as it’s known.
