Design buffs and dim sum lovers alike will be excited to learn that global Chinese restaurant and nightspot Ling Ling is coming to Dubai.
From the team behind Hakkasan, Ling Ling will be opening at Atlantis, The Royal on Palm Jumeirah next year.
We’re promised an “edgy, vibrant and sophisticated Cantonese culinary and nightlife concept” and stylish décor when it launches in 2021.
Ling Ling developed from the original Ling Ling lounge within Hakkasan restaurants, to become its own standalone venue.
The opulent restaurant experience will be on the 22nd and 23rd floor of Atlantis The Royal, overlooking the resort’s 90m sky pool. There will be a private lift to take guests up to the 23rd floor, where interiors will include a dining room, event space, lounge, private dining room and terraces – with a 180-degree view of the Palm.
Dubai is the third international location for Ling Ling, as the restaurant already has outposts in Oslo and Marrakech, while a fourth location is due to open in Mexico City in 2021.
They're all very classy affairs, designwise - Ling Ling Oslo, Hakkasan’s sister restaurant, sits on the recently renovated Aker Brygge Marina on the Oslo Fjord waterfront.
“Locals and travellers alike have flocked to Ling Ling across continents since it became its own concept,” said Angela Lester, executive vice president of business development for Hakkasan Group. “We’re enthusiastic at the prospect of bringing Ling Ling’s intriguing menus and unmatched late-night experience to a new frontier and could not ask for a better partner than Atlantis, The Royal. We look forward to emerging as a destination known for modern, decadent style that will help revolutionise and grow the culinary and nightlife scene in Dubai for many years to come.”Hakkasan, which moved to Atlantis The Palm from Jumeirah Emirates Towers in 2018, was originally slated to move to Atlantis The Royal, but it will remain at its current home at Atlantis The Palm, while its sister restaurant Ling Ling moves to the new property on Palm Jumeirah.
