SOLUTIONS LEISURE PROMISES BREATH OF FRESH AIR AS IT TAKES OVER THE PANGOLIN SPORTS CITY
The UAE’s leader in hospitality, Solutions Leisure Group, has announced the latest addition to its portfolio,
promising a new league of neighborhood eatery as it takes over Sports City hot spot, The Pangolin
Solutions Leisure Group has announced the first of its 2022 growth plans with its takeover of
The Pangolin, located in Dubai Sports City. First launched in October 2020 at the Els Club, the
team behind such multi-award winning venues as Lock, Stock & Barrel, KOYO, Asia Asia, Ula,
Wavehouse and STK, will reimagine the 60,000 sqm, two-floor restaurant and lounge, with
plans to transform it into an all-day dining and lifestyle venue, suited to the whole family.
Encompassing a multitude of unique dining opportunities, The Pangolin is a curation of two
casual restaurants, two bars, a private dining room, members’ room and expansive al fresco
terrace, with outdoor pool and gym on site. Taking over the venue in February 2022, Solutions
Leisure Group intends to embrace the community, creating a destination to fuel the senses and
drive the family entertainment dining concept in a new direction.
Paul Evans, CEO and Co-Founder of Solutions Leisure said, “The Pangolin is positioned in an
idyllic location at the heart of one of Dubai’s most fast-growing family areas. With a number of
our team living out that way with their families, we quickly identified a need for something family-
centric – a sector we’ve worked hard to pioneer this past five years.”
He continues, “Our extensive experience in the development of Wavehouse at Atlantis, and our
soon-to-launch Central Yas Bay, has set some epic foundations for the all-new family
entertainment and dining sector, which we’re confident is going to change the game in Dubai
Sports City. At Solutions Leisure Group, our entire being is to create the moments that people
live for; to bring our community together with the most memorable of experiences that immerse
us from the moment we arrive.
“We are extremely excited to kick off 2022 – our biggest year yet – with the opportunity to
enhance and reimagine The Pangolin, providing Dubai Sports City with an entirely new concept
that redefines the sense of community that it has so fast become. Expect warm, wholesome and
inviting vibes that breathe a little fresh air into the city.”
The success of the Solutions Leisure this past decade has shifted the entertainment and dining
scene into a unique league of its own. Revolutionizing the middle man sector with such
concepts as Lock, Stock Barrel and Asia Asia, today, it is one of the most awarded groups in
the region, launching eight new venues since January 2021, including a national expansion into
Abu Dhabi and global growth forecast for this year.
Solutions Leisure Group takes over The Pangolin in February 2022, with the new concept
proposed to open its doors in March of this year.
