Picture the colourful cafes of Bali, throw in a touch of Tulum’s tropics, add the artistry of Miami, and top it off with a wide selection of vibrant bevvies, global bites and unique cocktails.

Missippi’s is the neighbour you’ve always dreamt of, and everyone knows that the best neighbours have the best drinks. At Missippi’s, there’s a drink for every occasion and an occasion for every drink. Head Mixologist Enrik Luzi and his team are always on hand to whip up a unique concoction, capable of painting a smile on any mood, complemented by a wide selection of international hops, spirits and grape.

Everyone knows that good times are made all the better with great food! Missippi’s Head Chef Basha, under the guidance of LIVIT Corporate Head Chef Nasser Laziri, has carefully curated a menu that evolves throughout the day and is full of delicious favourites from across the globe, to provide the ideal fuel for your social escapades. From hunger-busting breakfasts for the early risers and tasty lunchtime treats to satisfy that afternoon appetite, to outstanding dinner options for the evening – Missippi’s brings colour, flavour and a whole lot of personality to every plate.

A venue that oozes personality and offers guests a standout photo op at every turn, Missippi’s is so much more than just a bar; it’s a social and visual escape from the hustle and bustle of Dubai. Designed by Arcadia Design Studio, Missippi’s is an Instagrammer’s dream: space that combines stylish modern décor with earthy-wooden cabanas, lush green flora, inviting lounge interiors, and a colour scheme with splashes of pastels.

“With Missippi’s, we set about bringing something really special to Dubai – a venue that allows guests to escape their everyday stresses, without having to leave the city. We are very excited to partner with LIVIT Hospitality Management who created venues like Cove Beach and Bungalow. To create this truly unique social concept, and we are confident that the fun-filled atmosphere, accessible prices, exciting food and beverage options, and stunning visual appeal of this social hub are the perfect ingredients to set Missippi’s apart as a home away from home on Dubai’s social scene,” says Ray Chan, Owner of CANDYPANTS.

Charlie Weaving, Managing Partner of LIVIT Hospitality Management, comments, “Our team is really looking forward to launching Missippi’s, one of six brand-new LIVIT projects planned for the next three months, and we are delighted to bring this truly exciting homegrown concept to life. More and more people are looking for standout options on this side of Dubai, and the city’s social scene is screaming out for a fun and accessible venue that excites people. That is why we believe the all-new Avani Ibn Battuta Dubai, just a 5-minute drive from popular communities like the Marina, JLT and Jumeirah Park, is the perfect location for Missippi’s.

“We are thrilled to be teaming up with the iconic lifestyle group Candypants on this project, a partnership that enables us to bring our collective experience and expertise to the forefront to make Missippi’s a reality and, of course, a success. This is an all-day venue that has it all, where guests can grab breakfast, have a pool-day, or party in the open air at night; we can’t wait to begin welcoming guests this October.”
