Art and culinary arts come together at Gallery 7/40

If there’s one pairing that Dubai never seems to tire of, it’s that of art and cuisine. In fact, just earlier this month, Palm West Beach has become home to this fusion with the opening of Gallery 7/40.

Drawing inspiration from the renowned Catalan modernist architect Antoni Gaudi, the new beachfront eatery boasts seating for 300 diners. The concept comes courtesy of hospitality group SOHO Family and serves Greek and Spanish cuisine, an imaginative beverage selection, and features a diverse collection of artworks from celebrated artists around the world. “Our project Gallery 7/40 is where sculpture, photography, and painting fuse with the culinary arts”, explains owner Dmitry Braude.

This translates to custom mosaic tile flooring and Murano glass chandeliers in vibrant shades of blue, green and gold. The restaurant’s flowing lines and whimsically curved ceilings and floors help to create an unforgettable ambience. A handrail, crafted to resemble braided tree branches and finished with a gold coating, is particularly striking.

“We will introduce a venue dedicated to artistic expression via exhibitions and collaborations with artists. We have planned a vibrant line-up of activations that will attract art lovers and guests who like to mingle with friends in classy environments.”

The new venue aims to be distinct from the other dining concepts at The Club at Palm West Beach by featuring a bespoke culinary experience and a revolving art exhibition showcasing the works of both international and local artists.

Artistic inspiration goes beyond the walls of Gallery 7/40, extending to the eclectic beverage menu. The restaurant offers a selection of drinks that pay tribute to some of the world’s most celebrated artists.

Elsewhere, the unique tableware draws inspiration from the Japanese art of kintsugi. This ancient technique involves repairing broken pottery with a lacquer mixed with powdered gold, silver, or platinum, resulting in a beautiful and distinctive design.

Braude adds, “The colourful, playful, artistic approach to the décor, plating, glassware and team uniforms will be a unique experience unlike any other on Palm Jumeirah.”

Guests can experience classic Greek and Spanish dishes while taking in its focal point – the art collection. Gallery 7/40 will also offer an abundance of local seafood on a magnificent ice display caught daily by local fishermen.

The venue will showcase limited edition pieces by renowned Spanish photographer Daniel Rueda during its opening.
