It follows smash hit openings in London and Ibiza…

One of the biggest homegrown success stories in Dubai’s F&B scene, The MAINE is set to continue its international expansion this summer with The MAINE Bodrum. Opening this June, The MAINE Bodrum will welcome diners to enjoy its award-winning fusion of classic grill fare, fantastic cocktails, and impressive live entertainment at one of the hottest destinations for summer 2024.

The MAINE Bodrum will open later this month in the Maxx Royal Bodrum Resort, a five-star seaside escape set on a hilltop, which boasts panoramic views of the Aegean coast.

The 150-seater MAINE Bodrum builds on the success of The MAINE’s expansion into Europe’s most sought-after summer hotspots last summer, which saw the arrival of The MAINE Ibiza. The restaurant will feature similar dark, rustic interiors, and will feature both indoor and alfresco seating. Lit almost entirely by candlelight, it’s set to be a sleek and sophisticated spot for romantic dinners and get-togethers with friends alike.

On the menu, guests can enjoy fresh seafood from the raw bar, an extensive array of hot and cold starters designed to share, and the brand’s classic selection of fresh fish and prime meats. Iconic MAINE dishes, like the sea bass ceviche, tomato carpaccio, chargrilled artichokes, sticky short ribs and lobster taglioni will also make their way onto the Bodrum menu.

The experience will be further heightened with an impressive roster of daily live entertainment. As is found in the venues in Dubai, as well as London and Ibiza, live performances will lead into energetic DJ sets that turns dinner into drinks and dancing.

The newest seasonal outpost of The MAINE will be the sixth restaurant in the group from founder Joey Ghazal. “We are thrilled to be taking The MAINE to Bodrum this summer,” he says. “Bodrum is by far the most glamorous destination in the Mediterranean, and the new Maxx Royal resort is by far the most beautiful hotel I have seen in a long time. We can’t wait to introduce our brand of ‘eatertainment’ to the Aegean coast,” he added.
