Iconic London restaurant Scott's opens in Riyadh this July

And reservations are now open…

Via Riyadh is the stunning new destination in the Saudi capital for shopping, dining and entertainment. But if you’ve not already checked out this dazzling spot, there’s a new reason to go, as acclaimed London restaurant Scott’s is opening this month.

Scott’s Riyadh, the first restaurant from the celebrity-loved brand outside of London, is officially opening its doors from Saturday July 15. If you want to be among the first to dine there, you’ll be pleased to hear that reservations are now open. Initially, reservations are open for dinner only, with bookings from 6pm and 11pm.

Located on the ground floor of Via Riyadh, Scott’s promises to bring the old-world glamour of Mayfair to a sleek restaurant space in the heart of Riyadh’s most stylish new districts. Scott’s Riyadh outpost will pay homage to the Mayfair flagship restaurant’s aesthetic with a sophisticated yet warm ’40s elegance. The timber-panelled dining room with burgundy leather banquettes and dining chairs creates an impressive atmosphere, featuring silver leaf mirrored screens, a marble top with a stingray fronted bar, and walls adorned with artwork from some of today’s most celebrated British artists.

Just like the institution in Mayfair, this celebrity favourite will serve up the finest array of seafood, alongside various meat and seasonal game options. Oysters, served at Scott’s elegant oyster bar, are a house speciality – so we can only hope they make their way to Via Riyadh.

Scott’s is the final opening of this phase of Via Riyadh restaurants from Cool Inc, following on from some iconic culinary arrivals last month.

June saw the arrival of a duo of meaty additions; Yakinikumafia and Wagyumafia, both of which serve up delectable premium Japanese flavours masterminded by self-taught chef-turned-wagyu expert Hisato Hamada. Other new additions include Joan’s on Third, LA’s hottest speciality food market; and Gymkhana, London’s Michelin starred Indian restaurant renowned for its carefully curated menu of flavours from across India that offers a modern interpretation of renowned classics.
