SUSHISAMBA to open on 51st floor of The Palm Tower


Dubai’s master developer, Nakheel, has announced plans to open the internationally acclaimed SUSHISAMBA restaurant on the 51st floor of The Palm Tower, 220 metres above the world-famous Palm Jumeirah in Dubai.

SUSHISAMBA, which currently operates in London, Miami, Las Vegas and Amsterdam, has partnered with Dubai’s Sunset Hospitality Group for the new venue, which is slated for a 2020 opening.

The iconic restaurant is one of a range of upcoming dining attractions on Palm Jumeirah, which is fast becoming a global culinary hub, with a host of existing F&B-focused destinations lined-up, including The Pointe, Club Vista Mare, Palm West Beach and Nakheel Mall.

SUSHISAMBA at The Palm Tower will offer a unique blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian cuisine, culture, music and design – as well as sweeping views of The Palm, the Arabian Gulf and Dubai skyline.

Managing director, Nakheel Malls, Omar Khoory spoke on the project: “Palm Jumeirah’s restaurant and recreation scene continues to bring a new dimension to living and leisure in the UAE, delivering unrivalled hospitality, experiences and views for residents and tourists. SUSHISAMBA will undoubtedly be one of Dubai’s most-anticipated new attractions, and we look forward to the opening of this stunning, internationally-renowned venue.”

The Palm Tower is directly connected to Nakheel Mall, which will feature its own unique blend of F&B concepts, including a collection of rooftop fine dining restaurants.
Nakheel Mall, opening later this year, boasts over 300 stores, restaurants and attractions, as well as its own Palm Monorail station, and is the access point for The View public observatory, located at the top of The Palm Tower above SUSHISAMBA.

“SUSHISAMBA opened its first restaurant in New York in 1999 and has evolved into one of the world’s most sought-after venues for dining and entertainment. Twenty years on, we are gearing up to open in Dubai which, as a growing culinary destination, is a perfect fit for SUSHISAMBA, and complements our other international locations perfectly,” chief operating officer, SUSHISAMBA, Omar Gutierrez enthused.
