An exciting new restaurant has opened at Dubai Opera to replace Sean Connolly, which closed down earlier this month.

The Loft, at the top of the building, promises visitors an "experiential" venue offering an "array of glamorous dining experiences".

The modern European restaurant aims to evoke the "poetry" of an oyster shell with ocean elements and colours that pay tribute to the tones of the sea.

Dishes on offer include seafood spaghetti, roasted chicken and a truffle wagyu carpaccio – with a raw bar and mixed drinks area also a key part of the venue.

There's also an outdoor terrace with an opening offering views of Burj Khalifa, the tallest building in the world.

Dubai Opera adds: "Through its glamorous atmosphere, gastronomic delights, and its commitment to deliver a uniquely memorable experience for all, The Loft at Dubai Opera seeks to be a timeless and sophisticated destination for the enthusiasts of fine food."

The restaurant will be open all week for dinner and drinks, with a brunch held on Fridays from noon-4pm.
And to celebrate the opening, diners will be offered complimentary bubbly and canapés on arrival from today until Saturday January 26.

Get yourself down to Dubai Opera to try out this new concept.
Open daily, 5pm-2am. Dubai Opera, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashed Boulevard (04 362 7312).
