The JazzRoom@PizzaExpress is scheduled to open in mid-February, after initially planning for a Q4 2014 launch.

Jazz@PizzaExpress opened in Dubai’s JLT district in February 2013 and has had global and regional artists such as Peter Grant, Juliana Down and Abri & Funk Radius performing at the venue. 

Located on the fifth floor of the World Trade Centre Mall, TheJazzRoom@PizzaExpress is set to be the eighth PizzaExpress outlet to open in the UAE, and will be licensed.

With both indoor seating and an outdoor terrace available, the restaurant will be able to seat 220.

“Given the popularity of the Jazz@PizzaExpress concept in Dubai, we felt Abu Dhabi was the next logical destination. There is more than sufficient demand and the right target audience, and the capital city has a thriving food, beverage and hospitality market,” said Anand Radia, managing director of PizzaExpress UAE.

“The PizzaExpress experience has given many thousands of diners in Dubai something very different and we now want to bring this to Abu Dhabi. On top of the wide selection of dishes on our menu, there is no doubt the calibre of musicians and artistes we attract has been integral to our success."
