Secret spot Nobu Privé will turn into a late-night club venue.
Known for its luxury aesthetic and top-notch Japanese cuisine, the global restaurant brand has just announced an exciting new spot on the 22nd floor of Atlantis the Palm – with a speakeasy theme.
Created as a way to blend traditional Japanese Izakaya experience with a premium nightclub vibe, Nobu Privé aims to be both a high-end lounge bar while maintaining its select and exclusive audience.
With only 43 seats and only open on Friday and Saturday nights from 10pm-3am, it’s sure to pack in a glittering crowd – and have many that want entry sadly turned away.
Perfect as an after-dinner experience, guests will either need to be personally invited upstairs from the main restaurant area, or book ahead and commit to an eye-watering minimum spend of around AED 1,000. Guests who have a Nobu black member’s card will be granted access however and won’t need to book in advance.
You won’t have to wait long to visit as the official opening is September 29th, and you can try and snag one of the cosy tables and sofas, or perch at the speakeasy bar where people aim to see and be seen.
The venue itself is going to have floor-to-ceiling windows with striking views across the Palm Jumeirah and the Dubai skyline. Specifically-crafted drinks are on offer, but there’s also a food menu featuring sharing platters such as lobster wasabi sour cream tacos, chu-toro tataki kinome miso and wagyu dumplings with spicy butter ponzu.
Expect the nightclub vibes to start later in the evening when guests start dancing into the early hours to DJs Jenn Getz and Alfie on Fridays and DJ Emir playing old school on Saturdays.
Nobu Dubai relocated to the former bridge suite of Atlantis the Palm from The Avenues back in January, and the current location has the accolade of being the largest Nobu in the world. Looks like the new offering will be just as tempting.
