Merex Investment lays foundations for first-of-its-kind McGettigan’s ‘Home concept’ at Dubai’s City Walk

  • 18,000 square foot McGettigan’s hospitality concept slated to launch in Q4 2021 and ‘reinvigorate City Walk’s The Square’
  • Licensed venue to house six distinct areas inspired by rooms of the home and offering unique guest experience

Dubai, UAE, 19 October 2021: Leading asset management firm, Merex Investment, has signed a deal with City 12 Hospitality LLC who have franchised Irish hospitality brand, McGettigan’s, to launch a first-of-its-kind concept called Home by McGettigan’s. Set to open at City Walk’s The Square in October 2021, the venue will feature six distinct areas spread across more than 18,000 square feet and will relaunch the licensed precinct.

Each area of the two-storey concept is designed to evoke notions of home comforts. There are four indoor areas, a patio and terrace comprising the Lounge, Kitchen, Loft, Attic and Garden. The new concept will be a rustic space that blends natural wood, stone, and industrial fittings to depict a cosy and comfortable setting.

Home by McGettigan’s will offer the same hospitality service that has made the global brand popular across its sites in Ireland, the UK, Singapore, Jakarta, Bahrain, and the UAE.

Merex Investment said its strategic investments and partnerships are designed to re-imagine the way people experience Dubai, re-engineer the way businesses interact with their customers, and re-think the way urban spaces are designed to create clean, sustainable, and happy spaces.

Shahram Shamsaee, CEO at Merex Investment said: “Merex Investment’s partnership with City 12 Hospitality to launch McGettigan’s hospitality concept is a testament to how we seek to reimagine experiences at City Walk. It is also reflective of our bolstered ambitions for the lifestyle destination in line with the guiding visionary Dubai 2040 Urban Master Plan, launched earlier this year. The forthcoming launch is part of a series of planned changes we have in store to reposition the destination, that will not only enhance the quality of life for city’s dwellers and the wider UAE community, but for visitors as well.”.

“We are very proud to be involved in relaunching this unique space within City Walk. We want the new Home by McGettigan’s to be a hub for the local community of residents and workers, as well as a prominent destination within an area that already boasts key attractions such as Coca Cola Arena and Green Planet. Expect the usual McGettigan’s focus on great food, drinks and entertainment but delivered in a new style and ambience. “, said Dennis McGettigan – CEO McGettigan’s Group.

Merex Investment is working to support the growth of local and global partners at its lifestyle destinations by investing in forming loyal, trustworthy, long-lasting relationships across communities and industry.  In a bid to bring best-in-class thinking to complement its commitment to placemaking, Merex Investment previously forged partnerships with JLL MENA, Core, CBRE and Canadian University of Dubai to create a diversified experience for Dubai’s global audience. The asset management company looks to empower businesses to deliver innovative solutions to the residents and tourists alike.
