It’s set to add to the incredible roster of dining options in DIFC later this year…

With decor by Damien Hirst, an exclusive address in London’s Mayfair, and a celeb clientele that includes Johnny Depp, Kate Moss and Kendall Jenner, Sexy Fish is one of London’s most glittering restaurants – and it’s opening in Dubai.

The avant-garde Asian restaurant, which specialises in Japanese cuisine in a high-octane environment, is set to open in Dubai in 2024, according to its website. This will be the fourth brand of Sexy Fish, joining the original in London, plus Miami, and their newest opening, Manchester.

Sexy Fish is known for its opulent and glamourous interiors, which is exactly what we can expect when the venue opens in Dubai. The London iteration serves up a set business lunch through the week, weekend dinner parties and elevated omakase menus, all of which were hoping to see at the Dubai iteration.

Although the website doesn’t give the location, it looks like it’s going to be DIFC. In December, parent company Caprice Holdings registered a new restaurant and bar under the trade license Caprice Holdings SF Restaurant on the DIFC Public Register. With the initials ‘SF,’ we’re deducing that this will see Sexy Fish open in DIFC’s newly constructed Innovation Hub tower, located behind Chic Nonna in the currently under construction area of DIFC.

This marks Caprice Holdings’ welcome return to Dubai for the first time since opening The Ivy in 2011, which subsequently closed at the end of 2016. Owned by British entrepreneur Richard Caring, the Caprice Holdings portfolio consists of some of the UK’s most glittering and renowned restaurants, like iconic celeb hotspots Scott’s and Annabel’s and Instagram favourites, Bacchanalia and 34 Mayfair. He’s also still the man behind The Ivy Collection, which now includes The Ivy restaurants as well as The Ivy Asia restaurants located all across the UK.

Only time will tell whether Dubai will get sizzling servings of more Caprice Holdings restaurants, but we’d love to see them bring more big names to the city. Annabel’s Dubai? Yes please…
