Nakheel launches new $32m Palm restaurants complex

Cuisine from across the globe is on the menu at Club Vista Mare, Nakheel’s new AED120 million ($32.6 million) beachfront contemporary dining and leisure complex, which has opened on Dubai’s Palm Jumeirah.

The latest project in Nakheel’s AED20 billion hospitality and retail expansion, Club Vista Mare features seven new restaurants, all set directly on the beach.

Cuisine on offer includes Italian, Middle Eastern, European, American Nikkei (Peruvian-Japanese) and Ethiopian through a variety of new brands.

Nestled between the Shoreline Apartments and Tiara Residences on the eastern side of the island, Club Vista Mare spans 50,000 sq ft and can seat 2,000 guests at a time.

Each restaurant has indoor and outdoor terrace seating with some featuring space directly on the beach. Around 250 parking spaces are also available.

The brands include Breeze, a beach grill concept including raw bar and deli-counter, Aji, Japanese-Peruvian (Nikkei) cuisine, Ibn Al Bahr, seafood restaurant, Abyat, featuring traditional Arabic food, The Tap House, European cuisine and American comforts, Simply Italian and Gursha, the first Ethiopian restaurant in the area.

Nakheel chairman Ali Rashid Lootah said: “Club Vista Mare is yet another unique addition to our ever-growing range of new projects at our flagship project, Palm Jumeirah. We have delivered an exceptional new venue that offers a diverse collection of dining options in a stunning setting, and further enhances Palm Jumeirah’s position as a world-leading destination for spectacular waterfront recreation.”

The Club Vista Mare F&B complex complements Palm Views East and West, two other Nakheel-owned restaurant destinations that opened on Palm Jumeirah last year. Nakheel also operates clubs at Jumeirah Islands and Jebel Ali, with more on the way.
