Michelin-Star Chef Akira Back

Introducing a second Michelin-star chef into the culinary mix, Caesars Bluewaters Dubai opens modern Japanese restaurant Paru in partnership with award-winning Michelin-star Chef Akira Back.

Located on a stunning rooftop at Caesars Resort Bluewaters Dubai, with breathtaking views across two spectacular terraces, the new eatery offers an eclectic menu of modern Japanese dishes masterfully created by Back.

The perfect spot to watch the sun set across the Arabian Gulf, Paru offers guests something unique – a buzzing bar, chilled out lounge and modern restaurant, all in one slickly-designed space.

Divided into three distinct areas, the journey into Paru starts with the impressive light-filled dining room. An intricate ceiling of stark white origami flowers lit with turquoise blue pays homage to the restaurant’s Japanese roots and mirrors ocean views seen from its towering glass wall. Suspended from the ceiling, a flowing steel and crystal sculpture with strings of luminous orbs nods to the restaurant’s name, meaning ‘pearl’ in Japanese.

Framing the bar and sushi counter, a modern mural, alluding to art as a form of love, was designed by Akira Back’s artist mother, adding a dramatic focal point for those perched beneath it.

Guests can watch chefs at work while indulging in a selection of delicacies from the menu or finding comfort in a more chilled out meal in lounge seating located by the floor-to-ceiling windows. For those that want to dine ‘Japanese-style’, a tall central long table creates the perfect opportunity to people-watch or keep tracks on Paru’s Resident DJ.

Outside, Paru offers guests the choice of two alfresco terraces, both designed for dining and the quintessential sundowner experience. Flanked by bonsai trees, the dining terrace creates the ideal chance to tuck into the modern Japanese menu while taking in JBR’s epic skyline.

On the other side, the lounge terrace with cushioned wicker sofas and low tables is a more chilled affair, serving shisha every evening. Set to top every list of ‘spots to catch the sunset’ it boasts sweeping views of the glittering Arabian Gulf, city skyscrapers and curving fronds of Palm Jumeirah.
