Bla Bla: an enormous new social and dining destination is coming to Dubai

Bla Bla will open in two phases, with the first set to launch some time this month

A new social and dining destination that spans almost 9,300 square metres is coming to Dubai.

Called Bla Bla, it will open in two phases, with the first set to launch at an unspecified date this month. The venue will feature 20 bars, three restaurants and a beach club, stretching from The Walk in JBR all the way to the Beach Mall. There will also be a slide from the top terrace down to the ground floor.

Bla Bla Beach Club, located directly opposite Bluewaters Island, will launch as part of the first phase of openings. The venue, which offers prime views of the sea and the Dubai Eye, will have its own bar and feature live entertainment.

The Bali-themed beach bar will occupy the ground floor while the first floor will host eight concepts – three on the terrace and five indoors, including a nostalgic Irish bar, a Hollywood-inspired venue and a vinyl-clad Record Room bar. There will also be secret rooms scattered throughout the concept, as well as spots to take Instagram-worthy photos.

Three licensed restaurants will also form part of the phase one openings. There will be traditional Italian and Japanese concepts, as well as a Texas-style BBQ Smokehouse.

While an exact date has yet to be announced, phase two is also set to open around the end of December or early January. This will launch the remaining bars, which are housed in an almost 2,045-square-metre complex with double-height ceilings and a total of nine bars with different themes.
