The newest hotspot to arrive in Dubai is Japanese restaurant Clap. With its flagship venue located in Beirut, Lebanon, Clap opened its doors at the end of 2020  and is set to be a firm favourite amongst those with a palate for incredible food and aesthetics to match.

Located in Dubai International Financial District (DIFC), the venue is now the largest rooftop restaurant and bar in the area and boasts incredible Dubai skyline views, including a view of the Burj Khalifa. The interiors of the restaurant feature 2,100 hanging above the restaurant’s reception and bar, which is balanced out with the natural woods and solid stone used for the seating, flooring and kitchen in the venue.

The restaurant has three distinct sitting areas including the wrap-around terrace, the bar and the indoor dining area. There’s also the ‘Ongaku’ – meaning ‘music’ in Japanese – and is a separate area for a live DJ.

The menu is just as spectacular as the venue. Boasting an impressive 141 dishes, some signatures include the Salmon ‘Clap Cloud’(a salmon tartare with spicy miso and poppadum) yellowtail sashimi with tosazu dressing and wagyu beef and foie gras gyoza. There’s also a fully immersive dining experience on offer – the ‘Omakase’ menu, which is Japanese for “I leave it up to you”.

The staff, the venue, the ambience and the vibe are all fantastic, which is why we’re already in love with this new Dubai hotspot.
