Take a Middle Eastern journey back in time at Ninive’s gorgeous outdoor terrace this season. Located at the foot of the famous Emirates Towers, the restaurant and cocktail bar boasts incredible views of Dubai’s captivating skyline not to be missed.

The breathtaking space reflects a relaxing Islamic majlis atmosphere that allows you to sit back with loved ones as you soak in all the vibes and take in the powerful aromas. By night, watch as it comes alive in the evening with twinkly lights and a vibrant atmosphere.

Designed by London design studio Pirajean Lee, there’s a story to tell in every corner. The interiors work in harmony with the food, from the dark red, pink-gold, and bronze hues to the twinkly lights, palm trees, and arabesque lanterns.

The menu is the star of the show, curated by Michelin-lauded French chef Gilles Bosquet. Guests can delight their palate in a Moroccan tajine, Libanese fatayer (meat pie) or corn-fed chicken with tahini, lemon, and spices. There’s also taktouka (Moroccan roasted peppers dipped in a sauce), manti – a meatball dish from Turkey, a spicy marinated sautéed lamb, and Iraqi tashreeb (braised lamb cooked with spices and lemon). 

Each dish is an adventure around the Arab world, combining flavours from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, and North Africa.

It’s all about a cultivated experience at Ninive, from its catchy playlist to its service with a smile. History, heritage, and a warm welcome await.
