McGettigan’s to Open at Madinat Jumeirah, Dubai

McGettigan’s to open at Madinat Jumeirah this summer

14th April 2016

We are delighted to announce that a new McGettigan’s bar will open in Dubai at Souk Madinat Jumeirah early this summer. The bar will open in partnership with Utopia, Viva Entertainment at the site currently occupied by Frioul restaurant (formerly Jambase Bar).

Nestled beneath Pacha Nightclub, this impressively sized outlet boasts an amazing waterfront terrace offering breathtaking views of the iconic Burj Al Arab Hotel and the surrounding landscape. McGettigan’s Madinat will offer all of the key elements the bar brand is known for; live music entertainment, unparalleled sports coverage and top class pub grub.

When asked about the opening group CEO, Dennis McGettigan said;

“I could not be more delighted to be making this announcement, Madinat Jumeirah is one of the most prestigious and visited locations in Dubai and opening a McGettigan’s at this site is an extremely proud moment for us as a group. We feel we can bring a different style of dining and nightlife experience to the Madinat which will perfectly compliment the existing offering of top quality bars and restaurants already available and further enhance the experience of Madinat visitors. This is a very exciting development for McGettigan’s and we are very much looking forward to getting started on this new project.”

Umesh Amarnani, CEO of Utopia – Viva Entertainment Hospitality Division is equally as excited about the joint venture between the companies;

“We are extremely pleased to announce this partnership with the McGettigan’s family, and are excited to bring this world class Irish pub concept to Madinat Jumeirah. There is a growing demand for casual F&B options in Dubai and Madinat has an ideal mix of both local and tourist markets making it an ideal setting for a signature McGettigan’s here in Dubai.”

This bar will be our 4th to open in Dubai and 6th in the UAE, McGettigan’s bars can be visited at JLT, DWTC, Dubai Airport, Al Raha Beach Hotel in Abu Dhabi and Fujairah Tennis Club.

Frioul restaurant will close its doors to the public on May 13th and the space will reopen as McGettigan’s during the summer months with a definitive opening date yet to be confirmed. Watch this space for updates!
