Dine Around at Park Hyatt Dubai
Final GRIF day, 14 March, a select group of guests will be treated to a ‘Dine Around at The Promenade’, the elegant dining destination recently launched at Park Hyatt Dubai.
The evening at The Promenade begins with sundowners at NOEPE, overlooking the panoramic vista of the creek, followed by dinner at Brasserie du Park which has been conceptually modeled after the quaint French town of Deauville, offering Normandy inspired brasserie cuisine in a relaxed atmosphere. The evening ends with cocktails at seventyseventy, a grown-up bar offering sense of nostalgia with its curated interiors and the retro glamour of a classic record player transporting guests back to the 70’s.
"GRIF is a world class restaurant forum that brings top class industry stalwarts to speak, share and debate on today’s topics that matter thus creating and adding value to its delegates and their businesses. Networking is the cherry on the top."
