Dubai’s branch of famous British restaurant The Ivy is set to close
The high-end eatery will serve its final meals and drinks on New Year’s Eve, a bash billed as The Last Night of The Ivy.
It’s the latest closure announced in Jumeirah Emirates Towers, coming hot on the heels of Tokyo@thetowers and Harry Ghattos which closed their doors last week.
In London, The Ivy is a famed venue and celeb haunt in the West End theatre district. It opened in 1917 and is known for it’s timeless style and classy atmosphere.
The Dubai outpost opened five years ago, and closes as the lease on the site comes to an end.
Between now and December 31, a set menu of favourite dishes – The Ivy Classics – will be available for Dhs200 between Sunday and Monday.
Described by Time Out Dubai as 'doing a decent impression of its British counterpart', it boasts the same masculine dark woods and racing green upholstery.
In our four-star review, we added: 'The “brasserie-style” menu is straight from the poshest pub in the village – excellent steaks, succulent scallops and a standout duck breast dish. It’s not exactly cheap, but a starter, main and soft drinks for two will not take you far past Dhs500, which is excellent value given the quality of most dishes (though you should avoid the gloopy soup).'
For more details of the restaurant’s festive offerings keep an eye on Time Out Dubai and our upcoming Christmas supplement.
Open Sat-Wed noon-11pm, Thu-Fri noon-11.30pm. Jumeirah Emirates Towers, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 319 8767).
