DREAM is now open at the Address Beach Resort in JBR.
In today’s world, escape is the name of the entertainment game, with the latest opening in JBR pairing never-seen-before performances with culinary art. Aptly named DREAM, the venue resides at Address Beach Resort, boasting an unmatched location that overlooks the Arabian Gulf and faces the much talked about Ain Dubai.
From eccentric design to spectacular live shows using advanced 3D mapping and showcasing acts from all over the world, DREAM transports guests from the bustling Dubai Marina streets to another dimension. The spectacular dinner-and-a-show concept combines the very best of Mediterranean cuisine with an eclectic mix of avant-garde theatrical and artistic performances, including dancers, singers, acrobats, aerialists and monthly international guest performances. Incidentally, the venue operates under the helm of Sunset Hospitality Group (of AURA Skypool, SUSHISAMBA Dubai and Drift Beach Club fame), so we’d expect nothing less.
Guests will be taken on a journey from the storied streets of Paris to an extravagant Broadway special in New York, the colours and poetry of Bollywood, and beyond. True to ‘the show must go on’ saying, guests will be enticed to regularly return to DREAM with a constantly evolving and ever-changing show concept. With entertainment inspired by the varying stages of dreams, and furnishings designed by the ethereal dream world, the venue promises to leave guests filled with wonder and awe, fully immersing them in the experiences that transport them around the world.
Each performance is complemented by a Mediterranean-inspired menu, with signature DREAM dishes including pan-seared scallops paired with caviar – a delicate creation perfectly balanced in a buttery sauce – or the foie gras terrine served with fig marmalade and freshly baked brioche. DREAM’s signature salad, meanwhile, is a great addition and an authentic representation of the Mediterranean, using the freshest ingredients.
Over in the mains, options like roasted chicken breast (served with a homemade truffle sauce) and Angus tenderloin (a fusion between grilled, juicy meat and pan-seared foie gras) cater to varying palates. To end the night on a sweet note, an array of dreamy desserts awaits. Placed in a hidden caviar can and covered with coffee beans, the tiramisu caviar is unmissable, as is the cheesecake, which accents a crunchy hazelnut crumble base with an expected sweet yet sour finish.
To switch scenery, GARDEN OF DREAMS is adjacently located on the expansive terrace of DREAM, providing an elegant yet playful spot perfect for sundowners and hookah. Hidden away within a blur of lush greenery on the waterfront, it’s the ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle that is Dubai and watch the city turn from day into night whilst enjoying perfectly crafted cocktails or an early dinner amidst a backdrop of live music. Speaking about the openings, COO of Sunset Hospitality Group, Nazih Hafez says: “We have worked incredibly hard to bring our DREAM and GARDEN of DREAMS to life. We are confident that we will prove that you don’t need to be asleep to dream and this couldn’t be more aligned with Dubai – a vibrant city that never sleeps.”
