Known for its iconic rooftop locations, the pop-up version of Clap is located at one of the most sought-after destinations in Riyadh, Majdoul Tower, and offers panoramic views of the city. Conceptualized by critically acclaimed Japanese designer, Noriyoshi Muramatsu, the stunning restaurant and open kitchen create an atmosphere of buzzing finesse, paired with deliciously curated dishes and an impressive array of mocktails. The venue is composed of an indoor restaurant, open-air terrace, and lounge with a playful, yet chic, contemporary aesthetic.

Precision and pleasure lie at the heart of cuisine. Unexpected and surprising combinations elevate the menu with Japanese flavours, with dishes ranging from smaller plates such as Rock Shrimp, and the signature Kyoen sushi platter with the chef’s selection of sushi, sashimi, and maki rolls to more indulgent mains such as the Black Cod and extraordinary desserts like the Matcha cheesecake with yoghurt sorbet and raspberry seeds.

The mocktails are carefully made with a passion for uniqueness with ingredients based on their freshness, distinguished aromas, flavour profiles and origins that complement the dining experience. The in-house mixologist will guide guests through a journey of discovery with beverages such as Shinsenna, with passion fruit, rectified pomegranate juice, yuzu and matcha salt and the Sakura Glory with plum compote, jasmine, tonka bean and citrus.

Drawing inspiration from Tokyo’s electric nightspots, guests can expect the unexpected when dining at Clap and experience a high-energy atmosphere with a weekly line-up of local and international DJs.
