Drink, dip, dine and dance – Welcome to Missippi’s
Candypants bring you Dubai’s latest poolside hot spot…
In October 2020 we celebrated a new addition to the growing Candypants hospitality family – our very own rooftop pool bar and hangout, Missippi’s.
In partnership with LIVIT Hospitality Management, our team came together to bring an urban oasis to Dubai’s Avani Ibn Battuta rooftop (part of the Minor Hotel group network) and create a space where sun soakers can experience everything from buzzing nightlife to chilled out brunches.
The mission was to create a vibe that feels like home from home for absolutely everyone, making the space every bit as accessible and friendly as it is exciting and unique. Designed by Arcadia Design Studio, we took inspiration from some of our favourite magical corners of the world. Think the colourful cafes of Bali mixed with the tropics of Tulum, and add in a twist of Miami’s arty decor. Partygoers can chill in their own private paradise, filled with rustic wooden cabanas, plush loungers, and poolside sunbeds that feel impossible to leave.
There are also expert mixologists on hand to whip up a menu of signature drinks, offering it all from iced coffee to cocktails – not to mention Missippi’s famous slushies. As for food, there’s everything from poolside bites, including our homemade flamingo shrimps and chicken yakitori, to delicate platters of Sashimi sushi, mouthwatering oven-fired pizzas and an indulgent a la carte evening menu to tuck into as the sun sets.
Since opening last autumn, Missippi’s has already earned its reputation as one of the coolest spots in Dubai to hang out. Whether it’s for a poolside party or to kick back and relax, there’s an event in our bursting calendar to suit every vibe. So far we’ve played host to some of the hottest DJs about, including Maya Jama and (MK), and our signature Pool Brunches, NOMA sessions, and Sun-Soaked Saturdays are just a handful of Missippi’s events that partygoers keep coming back for more, week in, week out.
The huge success of Missippi’s has also set wheels in motion for further plans to expand into other hospitality venues throughout Asia, as we hope to take our hedonistic haven to new areas of the globe. Watch this space…
