Our Middle East team are proud to announce that their recently completed project, ‘Wavehouse’ – a new leisure and dining destination at the iconic Atlantis The Palm, Dubai, received the prestigious award of ‘Best Newcomer Bar,’ at this year’s What’s On Nightlife Awards.

Located in the Avenues, this rustic-industrial gastropub-meets-family entertainment centre, cleverly creates fun-filled spaces and exciting experiences that cater to people of all ages – offering everything from a family-orientated afternoon out, to an evening of live music and entertainment.

The new complex is split between indoor and outdoor activities and comes complete with a restaurant, terrace, bar, bowling alleys, arcade hall and soft play areas – all overlooking a state-of-the-art wave machine. This is the first of its kind one-stop crossover food and beverage entertainment complex.

Wavehouse is just one part of Atlantis the Palm’s on-going multimillion dollar refurbishment programme across the entire resort, which spans 46 hectares – including but not limited to the refurbishment of 1539 guestrooms, twenty distinctive food and beverage outlets and extensions to the current leisure facilities. In addition to these ongoing works, Atlantis The Palm are seeking to further enhance the resort, with Turner & Townsend supporting on master development activities.

Hudson Fountain, Director, Dubai Real Estate and Project Management UAE comments:

"Over the past four years, Turner & Townsend have forged a mutually beneficial relationship with Kerzner International – successfully delivering various innovative and award winning projects across the Atlantis The Palm, Dubai resort. Our on-going role in providing project and cost management services to this iconic hotel development is rested on years of consistently delivering to a quality driven agenda and focussing on making our client’s goals a priority as we seek to make the difference. We are honoured to be Kerzner International’s trusted advisor, consistently striving to exceed their aspirations and working on one of the world’s most instantly recognisable hotels which continues to position itself as a global hospitality leader."

From Best Bar to Best DJ, the What’s On Nightlife Awards recognise the top places that make Dubai’s nightlife scene one of the best in the world. This particular award has been given by the editorial team at What’s On, who awarded Wavehouse for the venue’s innovative concept, buzzing atmosphere and amazing food and beverage offerings.
