6 Steps to Hosting an Event at a Restaurant


Whether it’s a personal get-together of family and friends or a corporate shindig, a fine dining restaurant in Dubai is a perfect venue for celebrating important milestones.

Fine Dining Feast

Restaurants are great places for holding special events and gatherings. 


At Doors Dubai, we make it even easier and more convenient for you to celebrate important events and milestones. 


You can hold an exclusive event in our 12,000-square-foot steakhouse with a fantastic waterfront view or have a smaller soiree in one of our private spaces and still expect the highest level of service from our team. Here, you are assured of a five-star dining experience and a clean, healthy, and safe environment.


Whether you require a corporate event venue or a reserved place to hold your private parties, Doors Dubai is ready to help you create lasting memories that you will look back on fondly. 


If you’re in charge of planning and managing the party, don’t fret, as we can assist you every step of the way. Our years of experience in the luxury dining business have equipped us with the knowledge and skills to turn your event into a success.


As an appetizer to what’s in store for you when you book an event with us, we have put together a simple guide on how to host an event at a fine dining restaurant:

1. Plan Early

Don’t wait until the last minute to plan your event. This way, you don’t fall into the trap of cramming. Some things may slip into the cracks when you’re rushing an event.


To avoid diving headlong into disaster, try to set things at least a month before your event. Doing so will give you enough time to prepare. The earlier you plan, the better.

2. Identify the Basics

The first step would be to determine the objectives and work towards achieving those goals, especially if it’s a corporate event you’re holding. 


Then you may need to decide on a theme. Whether it’s a formal or informal gathering, themes can lend a more festive atmosphere to an event.


You also need to finalize the budget. Setting a working budget will help keep an eye on the tab and managing expectations. The budget may influence decisions on the venue, menu, giveaways, prizes, or other items needed for the event to be a success.

3. Send Out the Invitations

Don’t forget to send out invitations at least two to three weeks in advance. This will give your guests enough time to respond to your invitation and prepare for the event.


When sending out invitations, be clear about the date, time, and place of the party. Include the theme and the dress code, if there’s any. Remember to put an RSVP (the French term for “please respond”) and the name and contact number of the person they should respond to.

4. Curate the Menu


Work with the restaurant chef in creating the menu for your event. 


Doors Dubai is a culinary paradise that offers a world-class selection of dishes and beverages. With our internationally acclaimed chef, Kemal Çeylan, you can serve an enticing medley of gustatory delights designed to tantalize and delight even the most discerning palates.


From mouth-watering steaks and succulent seafood to the most decadent desserts and tastebud-teasing mocktails, you can trust that every guest will go home smiling with satisfaction.

5. Secure the Space


One of the most valuable perks of holding your event in a fine dining restaurant is that you don’t need to worry about setting up the venue or decorating the place to the hilt.


Aside from the spectacular waterfront view, Doors Dubai prides itself on a beautifully designed space that exudes elegance and sophistication. Our expansive space is centered around the idea of sharing good food with good company, so you still feel that warm and welcoming comfort while you enjoy a superbly prepared meal.


You and your guests can also enjoy our VVIP private majlis, mixology lab, shisha lounge, and outdoor terrace seating. Should you want to add a more personal touch, just get in touch with our concierge, and we will make sure that your vision is turned into reality.

6. Observe Safety Guidelines


Holding events in the “new normal” will also require new ways of doing things. 


At Doors Dubai, everyone’s safety, including that of our staff, and your guests are of utmost importance to us. That is why we strictly comply with local regulations and international health and safety guidelines.


You should also make sure that all staff and guests know the safety regulations during the event. Another valuable safety tip is to stagger arrivals and departures, place floor markers, and assign seats to observe social distancing rules


All guests and team members must also be required to wear masks. You can also consider giving sanitizing kits to each guest upon arrival for their convenience.

Elegant Events 

When you want to stage a successful event, it’s best to be prepared. 


That’s why it is ideal to plan and ensure that every item on your checklist is well taken care of. 

It will also work to your advantage if you choose a fine dining restaurant like Doors Dubai as your event venue. With our careful attention to detail, excellent customer service, and top-rated culinary creations, you’ll be assured of an unforgettable fine dining experience.
