Restaurant, which opened five years ago, is closing its doors due to the end of the site’s lease in Jumeirah Emirates Towers
Jumeirah Restaurant Group (JRG) has revealed that it will close The Ivy in Dubai at the end of the year, marking the British restaurant's final farewell with a New Year’s Eve party.
The restaurant, which opened five years ago, is closing its doors due to the end of the site’s lease in Jumeirah Emirates Towers, JRG said in a statement.
“The Ivy in Dubai has established a well-deserved following of loyal diners and this hugely popular restaurant has been a feather in the Jumeirah cap for the past five years,” said Jumeirah Restaurant Group general manager Emma Banks.
“As The Ivy gears up for its final furlong in Dubai, we anticipate both regulars and those who have yet to experience the restaurant will be out in their droves. It’s important people get organised and book early to avoid missing out, especially over the festive period and New Year’s Eve,” she added.
The Ivy Classics Menu, a US $55 (AED200) three-course set menu, is available throughout the final two months of operations, served Sunday to Tuesday.
Other offers available until The Ivy closes include ladies night every Tuesday; 'After hours at The Ivy' daily drinks deals from 5pm to 8pm; the business lunch on weekdays; packages for Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and Boxing Day; and 'The Ivy at Home', a turkey takeaway service.
The Ivy is the second Caprice Holdings' restaurant that JRG has closed this year after Rivington Grill in Dubai's Souk Al Bahar shut down in June, eight years after opening.
Earlier this week, JRG also closed Tokyo@theTowers and Harry Ghatto's in the Emirates Tower Boulevard.
Prior to that, JRG closed Dubai's other Rivington Grill, located in Souk Madinat, in April, 2015.
Will certainly miss their fabulous Saturday brunch! Adieu!!
