Mediterranean vibes have recently been added to the mix as Laguna Beach Taverna & Lounge has taken up residence at Sofitel Dubai The Palm. As for what we know about the beautiful beachside destination? Its boho-chic setting effortlessly captures the charm of Greek-Mediterranean islands, for starters.
Laguna Beach Taverna & Lounge will be offering a boho chic New Year’s Eve celebration to welcome 2023 in style. The adults-only party promises the hottest beats, free-flowing champagne until midnight, and unrivalled views across Palm Jumeirah and the glittering Dubai skyline.
The evening will begin with Gold Edition caviar served directly to the table, followed by a procession of memorable culinary delights including freshly caught seafood, sushi, oysters, gourmet salads and foie gras. Entertainment comes from an award-winning DJ who will be spinning the freshest beats into the early hours, whilst show dancers and roaming artists will perform around the tables, immersing partygoers in the heart of the lavish soiree. Best of all, Laguna Beach Taverna & Lounge offers front-row seats to watch the grand fireworks show at midnight.
The trendy new venue welcomes guests to indulge in private luxury cabanas, dine al fresco, or bask under the golden sun, promising the perfect draw for party lovers looking to unwind. Cycladic elements await at every turn, with the lounge shaped in a grid of natural eucalyptus wooden columns. Hand-loomed jute rugs adorn the sand floor, delicate rattan pendants hang from the rafters, driftwood sculptures decorate the tables, and artisan terra cotta planters hold lush green foliage. The crisp and clean fabrics focus on natural fibres in sun-bleached whites and sandy beige tones. In the main dining area, flowing drapes create an animated ceiling, with the canopy moving in sync with the wind to create ripples that resemble waves on the beach. Meanwhile, the narrow alleys of Mykonos are evoked through décor elements like whitewashed stairs and uneven stone walls.
The dining and lounging arrangements at Laguna Beach Taverna & Lounge are housed within a ‘forest’ of tree trunks as an imposing 100-year-old olive tree takes centre stage. Elsewhere, private luxury cabanas serve as the ultimate retreat. For an even more exclusive experience, the pagoda-style VIP cabanas, complete with barasti walls, offer more privacy and elevated views of the Palm Jumeirah skyline. But regardless of where you end up, you can indulge from a carefully curated menu that features sushi and sashimi, grills and salads along with an extensive menu of the finest white and rosé wines from around the world.
Saturday, 31 December 2022, from 7pm to 3am. AED 2,250 per person (for UAE Residents only, inclusive of house beverages and unlimited Champagne) and AED 1,750 (for teens aged between 12 and 20 years).
