The new Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Centre has opened, bringing with it a number of new F&B concepts.
The third Waldorf Astoria property in the UAE, its signature restaurant is Bull & Bear and is inspired by the original once located in the Waldorf Astoria New York. It will offer a twist on the legendary steakhouse with “imaginative cuisine in a stylish, relaxed setting”.
Alongside it on the 18th floor is rooftop lounge St Trop. It serves up a poolside slice of the French Riviera, offering drinks and light bites from day to night.
Finally, Peacock Alley is a lounge and bar suitable for both sophisticated and informal gatherings. It’s a fixture at every Waldorf Astoria worldwide, and is named to portray the daily procession of people through the original colonnade connecting The Waldorf and The Astoria hotels in New York City.
The culinary is being looked after by executive chef Luigi Vespero, formerly of Galvin in Dubai.
