Say hello to your first-class ticket to Cape Cod and add NOÉPE Dubai to your hitlist stat. Find out why with The Huntr, here, now…
Situated at the pretty Promenade at the even prettier Park Hyatt hotel in the Dubai Creek area, NOÉPE is the ideal spot to visit during Dubai’s winter for al fresco drinks complete with some of the best vibes and views in town. Here you are surrounded by opulent yachts, it is one of the best places to catch the spectacular Dubai sunset and you can also see the iconic Dubai skyline. The swaying palm trees, glittering festoon lighting, and fire pit further add to the vacation vibes.
Inspired by the glamorous Cape Cod – a hook-shaped peninsula of the U.S. state of Massachusetts that’s a popular vacation spot, especially with the affluent and famous – decor-wise NOÉPE is like a cosy, casual beach house with luxurious touches. There are pillows decorated with stripes and green palm leaves, chic white curtains, nautical ornaments, and an inviting, expansive bar right at the center. The outside seating is a must-book for when the cooler weather permits and the (previously mentioned) fire pit will keep you warm during Dubai’s (sometimes) chilly winter evenings.
Unlike Brasserie Du Park – the fine dining restaurant a stone’s throw away (and another Huntr favourite – more on that here) – the menu at NOÉPE is mostly casual and encompasses ‘East Coast Inspired Cuisine’, ‘Nikkei Inspired Cuisine’, things to nibble on whilst you catch up over drinks with friends and desserts. The Huntr loved the Forest Mushroom Quinoa dish and the Seafood Tempura. We would advise skipping the Lobster Burger (too much bun, not enough lobster) but definitely do not miss the divine and worth-every-calorie Cannoli dessert.
For drinks, it’s hard to go wrong here – there’s something for everyone including some splendid mocktails and two great Happy Hour deals (full details below).
Insider tips: NOÉPE is open daily from 12noon until 2 am, however, on Fridays (thanks to the Traiteur Brunch), it opens from 4 pm until 2 am. Happy Hour is Saturday-Thursday from 5 pm until 8 pm and offers buy-one-get-one-free drinks on selected beverages. There’s also a Midnight Happy Hour, which runs daily from 11.30 pm until 1 am and offers two signature cocktails for 100AED.
