Nikkei eating hot spot Ají will be transforming its shores on Thursday March 23 to mark the start of 2017’s cherry blossom season.
Over at Club Vista Mare on the Palm Jumeirah, Aji says it will be marking Sakura night in style. Visitors can expect to see a transformed beach front featuring a plentiful display of cherry blossom trees enveloping the bar and entwining themselves above dining areas for guests.
Japan is known for many an awesome thing: its rich history, ninjas, throwing stars, sushi and the rice beverage all come to mind. One of its most beautiful natural sights, however, is the cherry blossom season every year.
To celebrate the season, Ají is putting on limited-edition, colour-changing mixed drinks and a one-night-only cherry blossom dessert. To top it all off, staff will be wearing traditional kimonos and guests are encouraged to wear pink to join in on the celebration. Thursday March 23. Aji Beachside Restaurant and Bar, Club Vista Mare, Palm Jumeirah. www.aji.ae (04 552 0244)
