The Nice Guy announces the grand opening of its first international outpost in Dubai’s Emirates Towers. A joint venture between The h.wood Group and MKIA Hospitality, The Nice Guy Dubai is evocative of the brand’s flagship location in West Hollywood, inspired by the same cosy aesthetic that pays homage to the decadent era of Mafia bars and restaurants. In addition to an intimate lounge and restaurant space, the venue will also feature a romantic, lit outdoor patio and terrace that extends the palpable atmosphere beyond its walls. The Nice Guy Dubai will follow suit of its predecessor as a highly sought-after, reservations-only destination, complete with a world-class lineup of classic Italian cuisine offerings for lunch and dinner, including signature menu items and crafted beverages. In true The Nice Guy fashion, dining hours will seamlessly transition into a nightlife backdrop with regularly programmed live entertainment and DJ sets.
The Nice Guy Dubai’s menu reinforces the restaurant’s culinary excellence and aptitude offering the beloved classic Italian dishes featured on the West Hollywood menu. Diners can expect distinctly Italian plates with a unique LA spin such as Lobster Pizza, Kale Salad, Cacio e Pepe, and Margherita Pizza. A special late-night menu is sure to please the after-hours crowd with Truffle Fries, Shrimp Scampi and the NICE GUY Burger, all of which can be paired with indulgent-meets-iconic craft beverages. Menu items unique to the Dubai outpost include Burrata with candy cherry tomatoes and fire roasted black grapes, Saffron Arancini and a vegan-friendly twist on a classic, the Meatball Pizza. The dessert selection is equally distinctive, featuring The Nice Guy favourites such as the Warm Chocolate Chip Cookie served with cold milk, and the classic Tiramisu, as well a line-up of dishes unique to Dubai including the Lemon Tart and the Vanilla Panna Cotta with a basil twist.
A nod to the original West Hollywood venue designed by John Sofio of Built, Inc., upon entry, guests will be greeted by a vintage marble and brass bar. Its size, scale and shape invite patrons to step into a uniquely intimate social atmosphere that simultaneously encourages conversation and a sense of camaraderie. The booths that line the exterior wall offer a private dining setting for guests, while the larger booths flanking the room stimulate the elevated nightlife scene that vibrates throughout the evening.
