A new era has begun at the popular Pan-Asian restaurant and lounge.
Nine years after its debut, Pan-Asian hotspot Asia Asia is embarking on a new journey — and it’s one with an attached price tag of USD 3 million. The flagship venue at premium dining destination Pier 7 in Dubai Marina has been reimagined with an elevated menu and interiors, all of which will be unveiled on 10 June.
Hospitality pioneer Solutions Group – responsible for the likes of En Fuego, Lock, Stock and Barrel, STK, and Ula – is carrying out the refurbishment, re-designing the brand around feeling and connection. One of the first immersive-yet-approachable restaurant, bar and lounge concepts in the UAE, Asia Asia is considered a must-visit by residents and tourists alike. With a unique ability to invite guests on its sensory exploration of the ancient Spice Route through flavours and décor, with hand-sourced artefacts and intricate attention to detail.
Stepping into its new persona, the brand’s update is one of sophisticated maturity, embracing its geisha-inspired character of seductive mystery and elegance. The interiors of the updated Pier 7 location have been intrinsically designed around feeling and connection. Incorporating vibrant pops of colour, like fuchsia and touches of gold amidst the textures of deep timber and plush velvets, the elevated ambience of soft lighting and deep house music is further brought to life with live cooking stations, an open kitchen and engaging bar areas, each space individually promising intrigue.
Culinary Director Robert Rathbone has worked closely with his team of chefs to develop the updated menu, presenting intricate Pan-Asian dishes inspired by the road of the ancient Spice Route that are as beautiful as they are delectable, with an all-new tasting menu paired with specific grapes a must-try.
