One of the most eagerly awaited openings of 2023 by Celebrity Chef and owner of two Michelin-starred restaurants in London, Jason Atherton, is set to open on 3rd February. The three-venue rooftop dining and drinking concept spanning the top three levels of Tower 2 in Dubai’s iconic Grosvenor House, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Dubai, includes City Social, 7 Tales, and a yet-to-be-revealed venue, that will reinforce the flagship Dubai Marina hotel as the ultimate dining & drinking destination.
City Social, the latest culinary concept from world-renowned Chef and Restaurateur Jason Atherton, offers modern-European cuisine with stunning floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of Dubai’s ever-changing skyline.
Jason and his expert culinary team have worked their gastronomic magic to create a menu where he lets the ingredients do the talking. The menu features some of the dishes Jason is most famous for, topped with some exciting new additions such as Scottish Salmon with King Crab, Cucumber, Dill and Trout Eggs and Ravioli of Shellfish with Seaweed, Mushroom Jam and Sweetcorn Veloute. Firm favourites include Roasted Sea Bass with Shellfish Ragout and Seaweed Butter and Pistachio Soufflé with Dark Chocolate Ice Cream.
A buzzing bar area also features its own terrace overlooking Dubai Marina, Dubai Harbour, Palm Jumeirah, the Arabian Gulf and beyond, where you can sit back and enjoy a refreshing beverage.
With an unparalleled 360-degree vista, there’s no better place to enjoy Dubai’s spectacular sights from the comfort of the city’s newest dining nightspot. Open from 5:00pm until 2:00am on Monday through Thursday and from 5:00pm until 3:00am on Fridays and Saturdays, whatever the occasion, there’s a spot at City Social just for you.
7 Tales by Jason Atherton
A sweeping staircase, a striking feature of City Social, will take you to the second venue – 7 Tales Dubai. Taking inspiration from the early 1960s Golden Age in Japan, this Izakaya-styled speakeasy bar is the latest space to hit the nightlife scene, boasting spectacular views of Dubai Marina, Dubai Harbour and beyond.
The Tokyo-inspired carefree den amalgamates the hustle and bustle of Tokyo after dark, along with the funky vibrations of Japanese hip-hop tunes played by 7 Tales’ resident DJs. Funky design elements include a bespoke, effervescent graffiti wall and ceiling by the talented graffiti artist, Gary Yong.
Open from 7:00pm until 3:00am, Monday through Saturday, spend your evening soaking up all this bar lounge has to offer. 7 Tales transcends the ordinary and transports you to the animated and vivacious streets of Tokyo. Come out to play as the sun sets, kick back and let your hair down.
Grosvenor House, Dubai’s latest dining destination features three concepts in total – all housed within three inter-accessible levels, the first of which City Social and 7 Tales open their doors on 3rd February 2023. The third is a closely guarded secret and details are set to be revealed in the coming weeks.
