Located in the crown of Atlantis The Royal, Ling Ling overlooks the resort’s expansive Skypool, Cloud 22, with soaring views of the glittering Dubai skyline and Arabian Gulf. Upon arrival, guests are whisked up to the 22nd and 23rd floors via two private elevators, where they are invited to explore the venue via several unique and communal experiences. Creative beverages can be enjoyed in the expansive marble-rich bar, or guests can embark on a culinary journey in one of two dining lounges, as well as a spacious terrace, promising soaring views of the Palm Island. The venue also features an elegant 12-seater private dining room, as well as a discreet Ultra Lounge nestled in the heart of the venue, designed to offer guests a more intimate and exclusive bar and nightlife experience.
Already boasting three international locations in Oslo, Marrakesh, and Mexico City, Ling Ling was initially born as the lounge area within the first Hakkasan in central London. Featuring lower tables, a relaxed atmosphere, energetic music, award-winning drinks, and a space designed for socializing, Ling Ling in London quickly became a space to see and be seen. Following its fame as a tucked-away bar, in 2016 the Ling Ling brand expanded as a stand-alone concept at Mandarin Oriental, Marrakesh. Designed by Parisian duo Gilles & Boissier, signature Ling Ling interiors include lush greenery, vibrant artwork, soaring views, and spacious outdoor terraces.
A destination dining contemporary Asian restaurant, Ling Ling encourages guests to discover and explore cuisine differently. Inspired by izakaya, where food accompanies drinks (rather than the other way around), mixers are at the heart of the experience with an intriguing and evolving menu. Ling Ling’s culinary highlights fuse Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, and Korean influences without leaving aside the Cantonese origins of Hakkasan that are present in every course. Helmed by Tao Group Hospitality’s Chief Culinary Officer, Ralph Scamardella, the menu was created by Steven Nguyen (Ling Ling Chef de Cuisine) and includes signature dishes; Australian Lobster Pad Thai, Tea Smoked Duck Kueh Pie Tee, 24k Gold A5 Wagyu & Lobster Maki Sushi Rolls along with signature desserts; Coconut in Paradise and Warm Chocolate Hazelnut Moelleux.
Ling Ling will open its doors on 10th February 2023, every day from 6:00pm to 1:00am (until 3:00 am, Thursday to Saturday).
