The highly anticipated new social and dining destination will be home to twenty bars, three restaurants, a slide and a beach club.
Eagle-eyed residents may have spotted the construction of a gigantic food and beverage concept at the far end of Jumeirah Beach Residence in the past few months, and we’re pleased to reveal the impending arrival of Bla Bla.
Embodying Dubai’s go big or go home ethos, the 100,000 square foot venue encompasses twenty bars, three restaurants and a beach club and will open in two phases this December.
Bla Bla looks set to revolutionise Dubai’s social scene with each distinct concept created to cater to a full spectrum of preferences and pockets, from barefoot beverages on the beach to bubbles and cocktails overlooking the glistening waters. Bla Bla is a venue open to everyone, whether you’re looking to dress up or grab a drink in flip flops. There’s even a slide from the top terrace to the ground floor!
Stretching from The Walk in JBR through and onto the beach, at The Beach Mall by MERAAS, Bla Bla will be the first independent licensed venue in the area.
The first part of the two-phased opening will welcome Bla Bla Beach Club. Located directly opposite Bluewaters Island and offering uninterrupted views of the ocean and Dubai Eye. The Beach Club will feature its own bar and live entertainment.
A casual, Instagram friendly, Bali-themed beach bar will occupy the remainder of the ground floor. In contrast, the first floor will house eight concepts – including a nostalgic Irish bar, a Hollywood inspired venue and a vinyl-clad Record Room bar.
Keep an eye out for secret rooms and Instagrammable spots throughout the venue, for there are surprises around every corner!
Bla Bla’s three licensed restaurants will also open in phase one. Occupying the large central courtyard next to the pool, visitors can expect traditional Italian and Japanese concepts as well as a Texas-style BBQ Smokehouse serving classics including smoked brisket, honey glazed barbecue chicken and Angus BBQ ribs.
The remaining bars will open in phase two before the end of the year and will be housed in a colossal 22,000 square foot with double-height ceilings and a total of nine bars, all with different themes and styles.
