UK restaurateur and Embassy club founder Mark Fuller told Hotelier Middle East: "The extraordinary thing about the Embassy in Dubai is that it is on the 43rd-45th floors, with the most stunning views across The Palm down to the Burj Al Arab and it offers fantastic modern European food.

"You’ve got one floor as a restaurant with a private dining room on one side, and a kitchen on another. The middle floor has an Italian raw bar and lots of seats, as well as champagne and vodka bars, and a private room – I’ve nicknamed it James Bond’s playground. Then the floor below is a main bar with an emphasis on style and quality. This is not a nightclub, it’s a supper club and a members’ club."
