Who needs a taxi when you can arrive in style by boat? Head to The Jetty Lounge at the mainland One&Only Royal Mirage where a private boat runs every half hour between 1pm and 12.15am every day. Book a place on the 10-minute journey in advance through restaurant reservations.
It’s a gorgeous spot for laid-back sundowners. Sink into the sofas on the al fresco over-water lounge for incredible panoramic views of the New Dubai skyline and a picture-perfect sunset over Palm Jumeirah.
The Mediterranean menu is subtly fused with international flavours. Three varieties of paella are perfect for sharing, or try the red mullet cooked ‘a la plancha’, served with Spanish green beans and zesty pomelo, mint and ginger.
It’s all in the details, and the overall culinary concept comes from not one, but two celebrated chefs. Award-winning Mathieu Moles heads up the kitchen, while the venue is guided by three-Michelin starred celeb chef, Yannick Alléno, known for his creative cuisine.
For a lighter bite, check out the signature tapas menu. We love the oh-so-Instagrammable avocado croquetas, as well as the king crab hot dog, a decadent take on a fast food favourite.
The exclusive three-course Louis Roederer menu for two, paired with vintage fizz.
