Everything we know about Dubai’s East Park dining destination 

Eight new restaurants are making their way to Trade Centre.

New restaurants come and come in Dubai, whether it’s waterfront dining at Palm West Beach, homegrown favourites at Dubai Hills Business Park or a back-to-nature approach to eating at Keturah Reserve

While we recently compiled a list of 50 restaurants making their way to Dubai this year, we stumbled upon East Park. This new dining enclave is slowly taking shape in the Trade Centre neighbourhood beside 25hours Hotel One Central. Here are all of the confirmed concepts and everything we know about them.


This popular eatery from Lebanon will transport diners from the vibrant streets of Gemmayze in Beirut to the heart of Dubai World Trade Centre. With its irresistible charm, this restaurant offers an ambience that transitions effortlessly from a relaxed brunch haven to a sophisticated cocktail oasis after dark. Immerse yourself in a world where comfort meets elegance, rustic meets chic, and the menu is a true testament to culinary excellence.

Harry’s Bar

Harry’s Bar arrives from the street of Paris to the streets of Dubai. This Parisian institution is known for its beguiling mixology menu featuring over 400 concocted creations. Popular choices include the Sweet Lullaby (rum, strawberry and peach liqueur), James Bond (Champagne, vodka, lemon and Angostura bitters) and the Stinger (cognac and mint cream). Having opened in 1911, Harry’s Bar is believed to have created classic cocktails such as the Bloody Mary, Blue Lagoon and SideCar. We hope the piano bar element of the flagship is transported to Dubai so that we can enjoy mixology and melodies.
