Dubai’s favourite Cantonese restaurant returns with a brand new lounge, Hakkatini nights and a reimagined menu at Atlantis, The Palm
After temporarily closing its doors this summer, the award-winning global Cantonese restaurant Hakkasan Dubai has reopened with a refreshed interior and a reimagined seasonal menu.
The recent Hakkasan remodel at Atlantis, The Palm features a stylish new lounge, inviting guests to enjoy pre- or post-dinner cocktails and signature bites in a more relaxed space. The intimate dining area has also been refreshed with a colour palette of dark blue and turquoise tones complemented by intricately carved wood screens and latticing to create a more ambient dining space.
Hakkasan’s lounge will also come to life each evening with the launch of the brands’ celebrated Hakkatini Nights. Taking place every evening from 10:30pm in the lounge and bar, guests can enjoy after-dinner or late-night cocktails for just AED98 per person, including two beverages or AED138 per person including two beverages and a bite. Beverages include signature cocktails, such as the Apple Ginger Martini and the Hibtini, as well as an extensive selection of wines, beers and spirits. The ‘Small Eats’ menu features signature favourites, including the Wagyu beef puff, salt and pepper squid and the chilli crab taro croquette.
In celebration of fresh and seasonal ingredients, Hakkasan’s menu continues to offer restaurant signatures as well as a selection of brand-new dishes featuring sustainably sourced produce. This includes the spicy organic yellowtail, Assam seafood toban, curry sweet potato, and a locally handpicked king oyster mushroom salad – capturing the very best of the UAE’s organic, fresh and local ingredients. Additional new signature dishes include the mala Wagyu short rib with pumpkin crisp and the lychee lobster with yuzu pearl – dishes which have been crafted exclusively for Hakkasan Dubai.
Hakkasan Dubai is also one of the first in the world to feature Love Stories, a new cocktail collection inspired, in part, by the cult Wong Kar-Wai film In the Mood for Love. Guests can savour the captivation of ‘The Far East’ with bold flavours of kaffir lime, pear and plum sake, or experience the passion of ‘Mistress of Deception’ with a theatrical element at the start followed by sweet and tangy flavours of Aperol, passionfruit and rosé Champagne.
Hakkasan Dubai will continue its transformative journey with a new Friday brunch concept due to launch in the coming weeks.
