7 Elephants in the DIFC

There aren’t many restaurants that come with their own app, 7 Elephants in the DIFC is a completely innovative and quirky way for you and your friends to enjoy dinner and a drink. Download the 7 Elephants’ app and you can check the trends of popular drinks, trade and buy hard with the aim to crash the prices. A seriously fun way to have an interactive evening out!

Noir at the Fairmont

While dining in the dark could sound like a gimmick, an evening at Noir will completely change your mind. The menu is always a surprise and dining in the pitch black, whilst initially a bit disconcerting, quickly heightens your other senses, and you are more aware of your surroundings through touch and appreciate each flavour and texture of the superbly prepared dishes. An absolute must try!

Meet the Chef behind award-winning restaurant Noire.


Carnival by Tresind in the DIFC
