The new property is located in the heart of Downtown Dubai.
Up until recently, Abu Dhabi had something in common with Shanghai, Miami Beach, Barcelona, Bodrum and London, leaving Dubai feeling a little left out – until now. The Dubai EDITION has opened its doors in the heart of Downtown Dubai, showcasing the signature blend of modern luxury and local influence perfected by the hotel group. Destined to become Dubai’s cultural and social milieu, the hotel will boast unique dining experiences, exciting entertainment, and world-class services and amenities.
Designed by LW Design Group LLC, it features 275 guestrooms – 45 of which are suites – alongside a spa with three treatment rooms, a pool, and a state-of-the-art gym. Restaurants at The Dubai EDITION, meanwhile, include Italian eatery DUOMO, Jolie (a French restaurant inspired by Mediterranean coastal flavours), Thia (a poolside bar and lounge with uninterrupted views of the Burj Khalifa) and a speakeasy style bar by the name of Leon. The good news here is that DUOMO is already welcoming diners, its unique take on traditional Italian cuisine set within a marvellous arch.
Upon entry, DUOMO flaunts a vast crystal chandelier that sits elegantly at the start of the arch, encompassing the entire restaurant. Once inside, this is no ordinary Italian restaurant – not only is the setting inspired by the Piazza del DUOMO in Milan (complete with vaulted ceilings), but guests are also sure to be captivated by the immersive digital art show that takes place on the arch itself. As for the menu at DUOMO? It’s influenced by the original style found in Southern Italian regions and the wide array of high-quality ingredients it has to offer.
The divine combination of different ingredients and the delicate techniques used to craft their dishes enchants diners with a unique twist on traditional Italian dishes including homemade pastas, select meats and fish, truffle aplenty and a selection of authentic pizzas. The overall ambiance is only enhanced courtesy of the outdoor terrace that’s embellished with olive trees situated in Italian Sienna clay and terracotta pots. With this much attention to detail, it’s no wonder that DUOMO – and The Dubai EDITION – is the place to be.
