Exclusive Reveal: Mazaj, a new Lebanese-Mediterranean restaurant
This chic new spot will open onto a luxurious courtyard with Sheikh Zayed Mosque views…
The venue formally known as Maison Beirut is no more. In its stead, a new, deeply sophisticated restaurant with expansive, sheltered outdoor seating is being forged.
Mazaj Bab Al Bahr is currently undergoing its final design flourishes before its grand opening, in time for Ramadan.
And for those, like us, unwilling to wait until then to find out more — we have been given an exclusive preview to some of that exciting upgrade info, along with these enticing renders.
Mazaj Bab Al Bahr will offer refined Lebanese-Mediterranean flavours, and although we’ve not had a look at the menu yet, we’re expecting flame-grilled meats, delicious mezze, freshly baked fluffy bread, fresh flavourful salads and speciality coffee.

The redevelopment plans have also placed an important focus on the alfresco section of the restaurant. The beach garden area has space for 149 guests, in a chic wood-framed network of cabana-like structures. Expect comfortable low-set seating. atmospheric lighting and panoramic views of the sky.
We’ve also been told the opening hours will be from 8am to 1am, which makes it convenient for those long laidback meals and indulgent all-day-dining. There’s also convenient access to Fairmont Bab Al Bahr’s parking facilities.
Special attention has also been paid to the decorative aspect of the interior which will include the display of an impressive antique collection. Other design features visible in the renders, show off a clever interplay of arch-work, splashes of colour in contrast with blocks of white, alongside strategically placed botanical elements.
The privileged location of the restaurant means that the beach garden area will feature Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque views across the soothing waterways of Khor Al Maqtaa.
With the venue opening before Ramadan, we’re excited for the prospect of family suhours here. And we promise to keep you updated with the launch information as soon as we have it.
