15 Glamorous Dubai Bling locations you can visit

Habibi, welcome to Dubai.

We’ve been enthralled by the friendships, fights and love lives of ten Dubai millionaires unfolding across eight episodes of the hit Netflix show Dubai Bling. As the furore around the must-watch television show reaches fever pitch, team FACT have tracked down some of the series’ top locations so you can live life like a millionaire. 


The underwater restaurant at Atlantis, The Palm, can be seen in the first episode of Dublin Bling when Ebraheem Al Samadi and Loujain Adadah meet for the first time on a blind date. The restaurant may be next to a floor-to-ceiling aquarium, but the food is one MICHELIN quality and will steal your attention away from the marine life. Sure, stingrays and sharks are swimming past you, but, best of all, there’s chef Grégoire Berger’s impressive seafood menu inspired by the ocean.

In episode one, the lavish lobby lounge at Palazzo Versace Dubai is the setting for a chance encounter between Zeina Khoury and Farhana Bodi. Decked out with red and gold upholstery with a floor mosaic of the unmistakable medusa head Versace logo, plus a soundtrack of live percussion, Mosaico offers a refined experience at Dubai’s premier fashion hotel. We recommend the afternoon tea which provides a curated selection of savoury and sweet bites presented in opulent Versace style.

CÉ LA VI Dubai

Sky-high hotspot CÉ LA VI Dubai inside Address Sky Views offers the backdrop of the Burj Khalifa when Brianna and Kris Fade meet Zeina for a couples’ dinner in episode one. Should you visit, a table on the terrace is a must, offering glittering views of the Burj Khalifa, Dubai Fountains and Downtown skyline to complement the exceptional Pan Asian menu from chef Howard Ko. There’s a reason why CÉ LA VI Dubai is a multiple FACT Dining Award winner.

The climactic end to the first episode takes place during a feisty group dinner at URLA to celebrate the engagement of Kris and Brianna. Although onscreen fireworks ensue, your visit to URLA will likely include beguiling cocktails served within glassware resembling jellyfish and elaborately plated food to showcase premium ingredients. Not forgetting those stunning Burj Khalifa views.
