Sergio Lopez to launch multi-restaurant and bar concept in Dubai
Sergio Lopez, one of the duo behind Dubai’s Tom&Serg café, is set to open a two-floor, 60,000 square foot F&B and leisure space at The Els Club in Dubai Sports City in early 2020.
The Pangolin will feature both a ground floor restaurant and bar as well as a first floor restaurant and terrace, it will also be connected to a gym and pool.
Serving deli items, baked goods, patisseries, and a menu consisting of African and European food, the venue will make everything in-house.
Lopez sprung to fame in Dubai alongside his ex-partner Tom Arnel with the hospitality group Bull&Roo, but Lopez has since went on his own to create Sanderson's in Abu Dhabi alongside Australian chef Troy Payne and The Pangolin will be their next venture.
The venue takes its name from a type of scaly anteater native to Africa, with the continent playing a large part in the inspiration of the concept.
