Renowned Michelin-star Cantonese restaurant Hakkasan will soon have a new home in Dubai’s Emirates Towers. Set to open in November 2011, the new 152-cover restaurant will feature innovative modern Cantonese cuisine and will have an additional 88-seat capacity on its outdoor terrace. The stunning venue will also include two private dining rooms and two semi-private sections outside as well as the Ling-Ling lounge for a more casual ambiance.

“As a result of our UAE customer’s requests and the success of our Abu Dhabi location, Hakkasan is proud to embark on a new era with the opening of Hakkasan Dubai in November at the Jumeirah Emirates Towers. Hakkasan’s anticipative sense of design, mysteriously elegant atmosphere and distinguished menu will without a doubt enrapture the taste buds of the socially chic and set itself apart as Dubai’s ultimate fine dining and lounge scene,” stated Niall Howard, Hakkasan’s CEO.
