Groupe Barrière Has Opened its First Brasserie Fouquet’s in Dubai

Groupe Barrière to Open its First Brasserie Fouquet's in Dubai on Feb 23rd

Brasserie Fouquet’s is opening a new chapter in its life with the launch of a venue opposite the world’s highest skyscraper, the Burj Khalifa. The new opening showcases the group’s expansion strategy driven by Alexandre Barrière, which follows the launches of properties in New York and Abu Dhabi.

Groupe Barrière is a family-owned group which boasts world-renowned expertise and iconic brands, which have helped to spearhead its diversification. Its commitment to excellence and ability to embody both tradition and modernity are two unique assets that the group is continuing to put to good use in its quest to achieve its goals.

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

An unmissable Parisian destination in the United Arab Emirates
Set in the city’s heart, with panoramic views over the famous Burj Khalifa, this high-end traditional brasserie has all the requisite ingredients to make it a Dubai hot spot. The property extends over several floors and offers guests a typically Parisian and unique experience, including a café, brasserie, and rooftop.

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

Cafe Fouquet's at night

Café Fouquet’s: customers can also enjoy a traditional Parisian culinary escapade at Café Fouquet’s. Its red parasols, typical Parisian cafés tables and wicker chairs invite 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 a sought-after rooftop on Dubai’s nightlife scene. A hanging garden in the city’s heart, elegant cocktails, beautiful skyline views, a glamorous 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 experience that’s “made in Paris”.

Salon Diane: Salon Diane enjoys a discreet location on the 1st floor. Out of view, it exudes an intimate and exclusive ambience 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.

A table filled with plates of delicious food

Creative and respectful cuisine

Food fans and connoisseurs alike 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.
