The brainchild of recently dubbed Top 3 most powerful Russian entrepreneurs, Arkadiy Novikov – and made famous by its equally A-List following – from global celebrities, to the world’s most influential jet-setters, and a multitude of media personalities in between – Novikov Restaurant & Bar Dubai falls within the portfolio of Arabian Business Hospitality Group of the Year, Bulldozer Group (the Dining & Entertainment Group behind Sass Café, Toko, Movida and VIP room).
