We were pleasantly surprised to hear that Dubai’s latest opening, Embassy (of London Mayfair acclaim) at Grosvenor House’s second tower, is in fact a supper club serving modern European cuisine. This town has long been begging for the supper club concept so prevalent in Europe, we couldn’t wait to tickle our palates.
“Embassy Dubai is open to all and offers something for everyone; from exquisite European cuisine, to signature beverages created by our expert in-house mixologist, fantastic music and the highest LED dance floor in the Middle East. Whether you are looking for an elegant dining experience, to dance the night away or simply to enjoy signature drinks with friends, Embassy Dubai is a multifaceted entertainment venue, offering guests the ultimate night out in the city,” said Pam Wilby, Complex General Manager of Grosvenor House Dubai and Le Royal Méridien Beach Resort and Spa.
Spread over three storeys with spectacular 360-degree wraparound views of Dubai Marina and the Arabian Gulf, Embassy offers dining, lounging and dancing in one fabulous location. As we expect you love your food, bypass the party floor and head straight up to Level 44 to the lounge filled with private enclaves and a dedicated crudo (raw fish) bar serving a fine selection of oysters and shellfish. Seafood aside, whet your appetite with some bubbles from the Louis Roederer bubbly bar and take in the glittering lights of the beach road.
Move on up one floor to Level 45, where a very refined European menu will draw you in with such classics as beef Wellington, which we have yet to spot elsewhere in Dubai or Dover sole meuniere. There’s even prawn cocktail for starters and steak tartare. We urge you to leave room for the blackberry crumble or better still, the strawberry Eton mess.
Now that you’ve truly lined your stomach, head back down to the party floor and dance the night away on the highest LED dance floor in the UAE.
Embassy first entered the UAE at the capital’s Emirates Palace in 2009, but soon closed down, so we sincerely hope Embassy Dubai is here to stay. Beef Wellington here we come.
