The authentic Boston sports-themed restaurant, O’Learys, founded by Swedish restauranteur Jonas Reinholdsson, has officially opened for business in Dubai.
Saeed Obaid Al Teneiji, Vice President – UAE Football Association and Anette Nilsson Exner, Deputy Head of Mission for the Swedish Embassy were among some of the first guests to enjoy the casual dining experience, which includes a games arcade, a dedicated shisha area, a bar and of course the ubiquitous big screen TVs.
Speaking at the launch on Tuesday 20th September, Ms. Exner, said:
“O’Learys has for years entertained sports fans in Sweden and now residents of Dubai will have the opportunity to enjoy this iconic brand. We’re fully supporting this latest opening, which I’m sure will be a resounding success with its great food, fantastic atmosphere and of course the thrill and excitement of the ‘big match’.”
Occupying a prime location on Sheikh Zayed Road, opposite Noor Bank metro station, the move marks TIME’s first O’Learys franchise in Dubai, following the launch of its debut outlet at Fujairah Mall in January 2016 – the company’s first ever non-hotel product.
