Ce La Vi has opened its first Middle East restaurant , on the 54th floor of the imposing Address Skyview Hotel in Downtown Dubai.
Cé La Vi currently operates in three locations in Asia: the rooftop of the Marina Bay Sands in Singapore, rooftop of the California Tower in Hong Kong and rooftop of the Sathorn Square Tower in Bangkok.
First born under the name Ku De Ta in Singapore, Ce La Vi took on investment from L Catterton in 2014 and the fund has been working to leverage the buzz of its original location atop the Marina Bay Sands, transforming it into a global concept.
The venue, which bears a striking resemblance to the restaurant atop Singapore’s iconic Marina Bay Sands Hotel, is split between a contemporary Asian restaurant, sky bar, chic club lounge and the dramatic infinity pool deck, with stunning 360-degree views of Dubai.
The restaurant itself, which can be accessed from the ground floor by two glass elevators, is headed up by executive chef Howard Ko, from Los Angeles, who brings more than 11 years’ experience at Michelin-starred restaurants around the world.
