Hakkasan Dubai, Time Out Dubai’s Best Chinese Restaurant 2018, is to open at Atlantis The Palm later this year.

The Dubai branch of the world-famous chain closed its doors in Jumeirah Emirates Towers at the start of this month (Sunday July 1), with a promise to relocate soon. And it hasn’t let us down, as it has now been revealed that the globally renowned Chinese restaurant will be housed in the massive hotel on the Palm.

Hakkasan will open in The Avenues of Atlantis The Palm in September, before moving to The Royal Atlantis Resort and Residences, when the hotel is finished in 2019.

“We are very excited to start this journey with Atlantis,” said Nick McCabe, CEO of Hakkasan Group.

“We are confident that diners will enjoy this Hakkasan at Atlantis The Palm, whether they are coming for our authentic cuisine, award-winning mixed drinks, stylish atmosphere or all of the above.”

The menu will include all of the restaurant’s signature dishes including the world-famous Peking duck and tasty dim sum. There will also be a “selection of innovative dishes”, unique to Hakkasan at Atlantis.

The global restaurant brand opened in London in 2001 and has since made a massive name for itself across the world.

Hakkasan has been led by executive chef Tong Chee Hwee since it opened in London 17 years ago. Around the world it’s headed up by chef Ho Chee Boon, International Executive Chef for the Hakkasan chain. Chef Ho moved to the US to launch Hakkasan in 2012, and the restaurant secured a Michelin star within eight months of opening. Since then he’s headed up all the openings of other branches in the US including San Francisco, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, as well as the restaurants in Mumbai, Dubai and Abu Dubai.

As well as being a top dining spot, the revamped Hakkasan will also have resident DJs to keep the party going.

“As one of the world’s most renowned restaurant brands, we look forward to welcoming Hakkasan to our resort,” said Timothy Kelly, general manager and SVP, operations for Atlantis The Palm.

“Hakkasan has redefined the approach to modern Chinese fine-dining and in turn, Atlantis has redefined what guests can expect from a world-class destination resort.

“It’s an exciting addition to the resort’s already diverse collection of restaurants and we see great synergy between the two brands.”

This means there will be an exciting line-up of restaurants in the new hotel, including Dinner by Heston Blumenthal. It’s a first Dubai location for the famous chef, and will include its own dedicated bar, two outside terraces as well as a private dining room. If the London branch of Dinner is anything to go by, we can expect contemporary dishes inspired by gastronomic recipes dating back as far as the 1300s.

Also opening in Atlantis Royal Residences will be Jaleo, from Michelin-starred chef José Andrés.

Dishes will star ingredients sourced both from locally and from Spain and will feature signature tapas, traditional Spanish small plates, paellas and cheeses. The popular US tapas restaurant from the 49-year-old Spanish-American chef, debuted in Washington DC in the US in 1993, and has grown to have branches in Maryland, Virginia, Las Vegas, Mexico City with another due to open in Florida later this year.

Atlantis The Palm, already has restaurants from famous names including Nobu, Bread Street Kitchen from Gordon Ramsay and Ronda Locatelli by Giorgio Locatelli, and these new additions make it an even more exciting dining destination.
