The Idyllic beachfront picturesque dining venue on the scenic shores of Palm Jumeirah offers a chilled vibe and an experiential culinary journey
With a history of two Michelin stars restaurant and a 7-star hotel, team Opxe Investment LLC come to share their experience with radio star Big Rossi and a team of passionate people in Dubai by adding The Deck, a vibrant environment friendly beachfront dining restaurant to its diverse dining portfolio. The Deck has now opened doors at the voco Dubai The Palm on West Beach, Palm Jumeirah.
The Deck is a design driven kitchen set in a space that perfectly unites the soul of Dubai through a combination premium food, music, good vibes and vibrant colors and materials. Social dining is at the heart of the experience at The Deck for people looking for a place to unwind and have fun.
After birthing two Michelin stars in Milan and Monforte d’Alba, an Italian Architect, Designer and Tourism Entrepreneur has partnered with an English Radio Presenter, Big Rossi, an Emirati Entrepreneur, a Fijian Magazine Editor, an Egyptian Restaurateur, and a Greek banker to bring this new concept restaurant in an eco-sustainable urban design setup.
The partners are advocates of style and comfort, bringing woody deck craftsmanship and practicality to the space. As you enter The Deck, you are welcomed by scenic views of the sea of West Beach of Palm Jumeirah similar to Venice and is home to a vibrant bar on the left and a huge mural by Kenyan painter, Castro, depicting groups of lazing bathers which immediately brings you into a state of relaxation – the foremost goal of this venue.
The Deck uses recycled furniture and natural elements like simple green grass that can grow their roots freely within the space from the floor without any cage or vase, giving it a unique visual flair and real nature personality.
A key design feature is the imaginary sand bridge that forms the outlines of the floors and takes you directly to the beach view beyond. All these little touches transport guests to their happy memories, creates memorable experiences and delights them within a warm and friendly space.
As an eco-friendly hub, The Deck’s bar counter is also constructed with props that has been testimonial of the growth of Dubai’s best skyscrapers – after being abandoned, they are now rescued and given a new lease of life at The, Deck, recreating the city vibes of Dubai.
The rustic deck board floors are expertly crafted by wood craftsmen of shipbuilders and reflects the work found on dhows that came to trade in Old Dubai with rustic wood. The recycled chairs and tables with the natural beauty of wood offers an abundance of charm and brings the furniture to life with the reclaimed furniture adds character to the restaurant.
