Jebel Ali Club by Nakheel, one of Dubai’s oldest leisure venues, has been transformed into a new entertainment destination.

Part of Nakheel Hospitality’s growing collection of clubs and restaurants across Dubai, the new Jebel Ali Club is a stone’s throw away from the original and forms part of a 500,000 square foot dining destination at Nakheel’s Jebel Ali Village community.

Other venues coming to Nakheel’s new Jebel Ali entertainment hub are a four-screen dine-in movie complex from Reel Cinemas, Seafood Kitchen, a new concept from Nakheel Hospitality, C House Milano, an Italian restaurant, and Andalucia, serving Spanish tapas.

Nakheel said in a statement that Jebel Ali Club, which turns 40 years old this year, is now split into two sections - one that retains its old charm and character by using some of the furniture, fixtures and fittings from the original club, and a second offering family-friendly dining and entertainment.
Together, they span 13,000 sq ft and accommodate 350 diners.

Thorsten Ries, managing director, Nakheel Hospitality, said: “Jebel Ali Recreation Club is a Dubai institution and a second home to many people, some of whom have been regular guests since it opened in 1977. We were determined to retain its original look and feel while at the same time broadening its appeal to a wider audience.

"As a result, Jebel Ali Club now boasts the best of both worlds: a brand new family destination with a separate section that’s a mirror image of the original.”

All of the restaurants have indoor and outdoor dining space, with a 55,000 sq ft landscaped terrace with water features and entertainment area offering extensive views.

The complex, which accommodates up to 1,500 diners in total, also has onsite parking.
