One of the most eagerly awaited openings of 2023 by Celebrity Chef and owner of two Michelin-starred restaurants in London, Jason Atherton, is set to open on 3rd February. The three-venue rooftop dining & drinking concept spanning the top three levels of Tower 2 in Dubai’s iconic Grosvenor House, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Dubai, includes City Social, 7 Tales, and a yet-to-be-revealed venue, that will reinforce the flagship Dubai Marina hotel as the ultimate dining & drinking destination.

City Social, the latest culinary concept from world-renowned Chef and Restaurateur Jason Atherton, offers modern-European cuisine with stunning floor-to-ceiling panoramic views of Dubai’s ever-changing skyline.  

In keeping with the dining style of City Social’s sister property in London, City Social Dubai has quite simply been created to give you an environment, a venue and a menu to be enjoyed any way you wish – the choice is all yours.

Jason and his expert culinary team have worked their gastronomic magic to create a menu where he lets the ingredients do the talking. The menu features some of the dishes Jason is most famous for, topped with some exciting new additions such as Scottish Salmon with King Crab, Cucumber, Dill and Trout Eggs and Ravioli of Shellfish with Seaweed, Mushroom Jam and Sweetcorn Veloute. Firm favourites include Roasted Sea Bass with Shellfish Ragout and Seaweed Butter and Pistachio Soufflé with Dark Chocolate Ice Cream.

City Social is built around the vibrance of its iconic cocktail bar, set against an impressive floor-to-ceiling wine cellar. The seven-metre marble bar takes centre stage and is the perfect hub for those wanting to relax and strike up lasting conversations whilst City Social’s DJs add to the vibrant atmosphere. Take a seat at the bar and chat to the friendly mixologists or be guided to your dining table for the night – where an evening of exceptional food awaits.

Come for a starter and a glass of grape at the bar or opt for a four-course dinner – the effortless yet delicious menu has been designed to suit every mood.

The buzzing bar area also features its own terrace overlooking Dubai Marina, Dubai Harbour, Palm Jumeirah, the Arabian Gulf and beyond, where you can sit back and enjoy a refreshing glass of grape post-work, a delicious pre-dinner cocktail or reflect on the evening that’s been, over a nightcap.

Commenting on the launch, Jason Atherton said: “City Social promises uncomplicated luxury in a spectacular setting. We’ll provide the venue and the menu, it’s up to you how you want to spend your time at any or all of our venues. It has been a pleasure working with Pam Wilby and her team at the Grosvenor House Dubai, and we can’t wait to bring our vision to life for diners and drinkers from Dubai and around the world.” 

Pam Wilby, General Manager of Grosvenor House, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Dubai added, “It was only a natural progression to bring someone with the stature of Chef Jason Atherton to helm these top three venues at The Grosvenor House, the heartbeat of Dubai Marina. We’re very excited to welcome Jason to the Grosvenor House family and to have these venues as part of our trendsetting food and beverage offering – places to see and places to be seen in.”

With an unparalleled 360-degree vista, there’s no better place to enjoy Dubai’s spectacular sights from the comfort of the city’s newest dining nightspot. Open from 5:00 PM until 2:00 AM on Monday through Thursday and from 5:00 PM until 3:00 AM on Fridays and Saturdays, whatever the occasion, there’s a spot at City Social just for you.

7 Tales by Jason Atherton

A sweeping staircase, a striking feature of City Social, will take you to the second
venue – 7 Tales Dubai. Taking inspiration from the early 1960s Golden Age in Japan, this Izakaya-styled speakeasy bar is the latest space to hit the nightlife scene, boasting spectacular views of Dubai Marina, Dubai Harbour and beyond.

The Tokyo-inspired carefree den amalgamates the hustle and bustle of Tokyo after dark, along with the funky vibrations of Japanese hip-hop tunes played by 7 Tales’ resident DJs. The venue features an achingly cool cocktail bar and offers an array of Japanese gin, whisky, sake, and cocktails exclusively handcrafted by the talented bar team as well as
Asian-inspired bar bites from the kitchen.

Funky design elements include a bespoke, effervescent graffiti wall and ceiling by the talented graffiti artist, Gary Yong. The lofty speakeasy bar also boasts a special negroni table with a hip game element allowing you to lose yourself in the soul of Tokyo in Dubai.

Open from 7:00 PM until 3:00 AM, Monday through Saturday, spend your evening soaking up all this cocktail lounge has to offer. 7 Tales transcends the ordinary and transports you to the animated and vivacious streets of Tokyo. Come out to play as the sun sets, kick back and let your hair down.

Grosvenor House, Dubai’s latest dining destination features three concepts in total – all housed within three inter-accessible levels, the first of which City Social and 7 Tales open their doors on 3rd February 2023. The third is a closely guarded secret and details are set to be revealed in the coming weeks.
