DUKES Dubai, located on the west trunk of Palm Jumeirah, is all set for its its soft opening today. It is the first international property for DUKES, which has been popular with GCC visitors in London for decades.
For the soft opening, bedrooms on the first six floors of the 15-floor property will be in service, as will the hotel’s signature outlet Great British Restaurant (GBR) and DUKES Bar.
Serving modern British brasserie-style cuisine, GBR will operate under the culinary direction of executive chef Martin Cahill, serving quality British produce in a stylish setting. The menu includes dishes such as cod and chips, Lancashire hot pot, Colchester Oysters and Dover sole, along with delicious desserts. For lighter bites and drinks, guests can head to the DUKES Bar.
The rest of the property will be completed in early 2017. This will include traditional Northern Indian restaurant Khyber. Visitors can also look forward to the Tea Lounge for afternoon tea and the Cigar Lounge.
“Once complete, DUKES Dubai will consist of 273 guestrooms including 64 suites, with a ladies-only Liberty Duchess floor featuring 20 rooms, as well as 227 fully furnished hotel apartments and six distinctive dining experiences,” said Abdulla Bin Sulayem, CEO, Seven Tides.
