If there’s one thing that Dubai is known for, it’s the captivating skyline. And here at Ninive’s gorgeous outdoor space, that’s exactly the views you will get and since the cooler season is here, it’s a must-visit.

The Middle Eastern restaurant and cocktail bar is located at the foot of the famous Emirates Towers. It reflects a relaxing Islamic majlis atmosphere that allows you to sit back with loved ones as you soak in all the vibes.


The decor is created by London design studio Pirajean Lee and adds to the beautiful atmosphere with twinkly lights, palm trees and arabesque lanterns. Harmonious shades of dark red, pink-gold and bronze dominate and come together seamlessly bringing together the desert and Dubai’s futuristic style.

All your senses are activated here at Ninive. Powerful aromas fill the air answering your question about whether the food on offer matches the pretty vibes.
