Shakespeare and Co. is proud to have been conceived and developed in Dubai in 2001, being now one of the most reputable homegrown F&B brands with 34 locations across the UAE. Known for its stunning decor, daring colors, and large menu, Shakespeare & Co. offers a one-of-a-kind experience.
After establishing Shakespeare & Co. as a household name in Dubai, founder and owner Dr. Edward Saad decided to return to his roots in Lexington, Kentucky to open his first location in the US. Dr. Saad attended the University of Kentucky in the late 70s to complete his Ph.D. in chemical engineering after graduating from M.I.T., and worked for Ashland Oil before moving overseas for a job opportunity. Dr. Saad has always fondly remembered his days at UK, and cherished the opportunity to come back to Lexington and give back to the city that he so fondly remembered.
