Feast for your senses? The super exclusive Supperclub has just the meal plan for Dubai

By Bindu Suresh Rai

Halfway through your delectable foie gras, an acrobat will probably drop down from the ceiling faster than your jaw hitting the fine china decorating that crisp linen at your table at this feast for the senses.

For those of you, who have experienced the antics and the bourgeois that define the fabric of this uber exclusive dining concept, will vouch that no night is ever the same at the Supperclub.

Amsterdam’s famed, and sometimes cheekily notorious, dining concept is soon to open its doors in Dubai, after drawing in VIP clientele that has included royalty and Hollywood A-listers at its venues in cities across the globe, including Los Angeles, San Francisco, London and Istanbul.

Set for a March opening at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray, the management has also confirmed it is currently in talks for an opening in Qatar and Morocco in the coming years.

Yassin Matbouly, Partner of Supperclub Middle East Facilities Management LLC, said: “Supperclub is poised to revolutionise the hospitality scene in this region, serving a feast for the senses, where art will meet culinary connoisseurs.”

In simpler words, this premium lounge and restaurant concept marries the arts with a palette for fine dining, where theatrics meet escargot, and musicians complement tapioca balls on a platter.

Without revealing the investment into bringing this exclusive brand to Dubai, except for saying, “it’s huge,” Matbouly confirmed the Supperclub took two years to meet all the right specificities before trailblazing into the emirate.

“We wanted to ensure we met the criteria of right venue, positioning and timing before bringing such a concept into the region,” he explained. “What this city has seen thus far in its nightlife establishments will pale in comparison when Supperclub opens in March.”

Quizzed if the brand will compete with the likes of reputed venues such as Cavalli Club and Restaurant, Embassy or Cirque du Soir, Matbouly dismissed them, adding, “there is simply no comparison.

“What we are bringing to the table is a dining destination where patrons will experience not just a five-star menu, but a setting that is parallel to that sensibility, with cutting edge art all round them.”

He further said: “Aside from the menu that will rotate practically every week – so you will never have the same meal twice – you will also discover creativity by budding local and international artistes, across all walks of the arts, be it music, painting, sculptures or performance-based.”

Once opened, the two-floored design will offer six dining and entertainment options where guests can indulge in experimental dishes from famed Head Chef Dom Robinson.

The dine-in venues include two chef’s tables, a private gold room and the open plan dining area, while beverages will be served from the ‘Balcony Noir’ bar and the ‘Bar rouge’, with ocean views from the alfresco terrace.

While the concept promises to live up to the Supperclub brand, a common complaint across Dubai’s burgeoning nightlife are the strict door polices that such exclusive venues adopt, making it virtually impossible to enter for the majority.

Quiz Matbouly and he doesn’t deny that their venue’s door policy is a strict one.

“While Supperclub will remain exclusive, it will also be accessible; however, you may have to spend a bit more for that little privilege,”he laughed.
