“It is with immense pleasure that we open the doors to our newest Cipriani, located in Dubai's vibrant DIFC.

Next month, the venue will launch a separate lounge area, Socialista, at the rear of the restaurant. It will act as a laid-back, upbeat area where guests can continue the Cipriani experience until late hours of the night. Cipriani was brought to Dubai by the Bulldozer Group hospitality firm. It already has a branch in Abu Dhabi and across the world, including Monte Carlo, Hong Kong, and New York.
