Come PLAY if you Cannes!
PLAY Cannes will officially swing open its stylish doors in just a few short weeks, as it takes over the French Riviera from July 1st, 2017. The highly anticipated opening of PLAY Dining Group’s first international location is just around the corner, as it gears up to be the summer’s hottest dining destination, set to attract the ‘who’s who’ of Europe and the Middle East’s jet set elite.
PLAY Cannes will transform the ballroom and terrace of the iconic Hôtel Barrière Le Majestic, bringing the DNA of PLAY Dubai into the southern shores of France, with a chic French flair making it a perfect fusion of the glitz of Dubai matched with the glamour of France. The PLAY Cannes pop up will remain open from July 2017 until the end of August 2017, delivering a world class dining experience to Cannes, to entice the Riviera’s taste buds with PLAY’s signature Mediterrasian flavors.
PLAY Cannes’s interiors will feature beautiful raw wooden tables, sofas in soft camel leather, lounge chairs in cream chenille, creating a more delicate vibe that has a real South of France feel. The stunning terrace comfortably seats 44 and is bright and inviting, leading you into the 33 seater lounge. Inside the lounge there is a lavish 12 seater bar and the lounge and terrace will be open every day from 2pm. The elegant dining area seats up to 100 and is split level, featuring an exclusive elevated dining area and a DJ booth. The decadent restaurant will be open daily from 7pm until 3am, letting its glamorous guests enjoy all that PLAY Cannes has to offer.
“There is a lighter feel to PLAY Cannes, you can see it especially in the pops of colour throughout the restaurant, the flowers, the Votive candles as well as the hues of blues, whites and reds found in the restaurant’s décor accents. We have created a certain chic-ness that can only be found within PLAY Dining Group’s outlets. Our terrace in particular is my favorite area of PLAY Cannes with its floor to ceiling windows and bold gold pendant lights, which really emulate PLAY Dubai in this new location,” explains Paul Murashe, Manager of Operations for PLAY Dubai and PLAY Cannes.
The food is what set PLAY Dubai apart from the rest and will be sure to do the same in Cannes, as its award-winning Mediterrasian gastronomy has been an international sensation. The talented Chef Reif Othman will bring his culinary magic to the South of France as he explains that PLAY Cannes will, “take our flavors from Dubai, the Mediterrasian cuisine that we have cultivated at PLAY since its inception, but I will be using fresh ingredients and produce from the region to bring a new taste to our pop-up here in Cannes. Also each week I will be creating a special seasonal dish, that will be available only at PLAY Cannes. Our core will always remain in our Mediterrasian roots, but with this pop-up we wanted to use influences from the region, to bring a taste of the French Rivera into our food, so it will really be a truly one-of-a-kind experience for our guests”.
Don’t miss out on the sensational summer opening of PLAY Cannes, as it brings a taste of Dubai’s ground-breaking Mediterrasian gastronomy and unforgettable ambiance to the French Riviera.
