A leader in French art de vivre for more than 120 years, brasserie Fouquet’s starts a new chapter with the launch of a venue opposite the world’s highest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa. This opening in Dubai demonstrates the group’s desire to speed up its international expansion, along with its recent launches in New York and Abu Dhabi, reaffirming the group’s strategy driven by Alexandre Barrière.

The family-owned group boasts world renowned expertise and iconic brands which have helped to spearhead its diversification. Its prowess, commitment to excellence, and ability to embody both tradition and modernity are unique assets that the group plans to put to good use.

With its 12th brasserie Fouquet’s, this being its second in the United Arab Emirates, Barrière is preparing to showcase not only the excellent quality of French gastronomy, and of its teams, but also that of French «art de vivre».

An unmissable Parisian destination in the United Arab Emirates

Set right in the heart of the city, with panoramic views over the famous Burj Khalifa, this high-end traditional brasserie has all the makings of a Dubai hot spot. Extending over several floors to offer its guests a typically Parisian and unique experience, Fouquet’s Dubai features a café, brasserie, and rooftop.

  • Brasserie Fouquet’s Dubai: red velvet armchairs, wood paneling, Studio Harcourt black and white portraits of stars from the silver screen… Fouquet’s Dubai pays homage to the iconic Parisian brasserie with its timeless decor, imagined by Bruno Borrione – a longstanding partner of Philippe Starck – who skilfully combines traditional elegance with modern chic. Whilst the establishment echoes the brand’s signature style, the Brasserie’s unique design, which is both contemporary and sophisticated, offers a wow factor that’s in perfect keeping with the city’s DNA
  • Café Fouquet’s: customers can also enjoy a traditional Parisian culinary escapade at Café Fouquet’s. With its red parasols, typical Parisian cafés tables and wicker chairs, it invites guests to relax on the terrace, where the delicious smell of pâtisseries and fresh bread fills the air.
  • Le Toit: nestling on the top floor, Le Toit will be the coolest rooftop on Dubai’s nightlife scene. A hanging garden in the heart of the city, elegant cocktails, beautiful skyline views, a glamourous party atmosphere… That’s the spirit of Le Toit. The promise of endless nights to the sounds of the house DJ! The cocktail menu showcases original recipes that are a delight for the eyes and the tastebuds. An immersive, truly “made in Paris” experience.

Salon Diane: Salon Diane enjoys a discreet location on the 1st floor. Out of view, it exudes an intimate and exclusive ambiance on a tastefully decorated private floor, comprising a reception room with comfortable leather armchairs and a fully-equipped cutting edge meeting room that can cater for up to 12 people.

Creative respectful cuisine 

Like all the other Fouquet’s restaurants, the menu at Fouquet’s Dubai is in line with the high-end brasserie’s principles. Respectful of the land, the menu showcases high-quality seasonal produce, with the creative flair of the finest restaurants.

Foodies and connoisseurs will enjoy traditional cuisine with a modern touch, including signature dishes such as Burgundy snails, duck foie gras terrine, onion soup, homemade pâté en croûte, authentic veal stew, black truffle rigatoni, traditional beef tartare prepared in front of the customer, crêpes Suzette and even the legendary Fouquet’s mille-feuille and the Arc de Triomphe Opera cake.
