Dubai is truly a melting pot of different international cuisines and that’s certainly the case when it comes to its dining scene. To prove the point, Amelia Restaurant and Lounge presence in Downtown Dubai and celebrates global flavors. The restaurant started in Beirut, Lebanon, serves Japanese as well as Peruvian food, and has a hint of Mediterranean flavors. Since its opening, it has already won the heart of both local and international guests who love Lebanese foods with fusion of some international influences.
Guests will surely be amazed when they are going to visit Amelia Restaurant and Lounge, they will be struck by the sheer scale of the venue – not only is it located across three levels in Address Sky View, but it has made impressive use of the space. The high ceilings, hanging plants and sweeping staircases all add to the gothic drama. As for that dramatic décor, it is steampunk meets industrial chic. You’ll be wowed by the nifty nods to aviation, as there is a giant propeller above the bar. Plus, the exposed bricks, brown leather booths and Art Deco touches give the place a refined yet rustic atmosphere.
Speaking of the menu, there’s an impressive array of Nikkei cuisine with Mediterranean hints laced into the dishes too, so there’s sure to be something for everyone. It’s all paired with some rather inventive cocktails which come finished with delicate ice cups piled with fruit, edible flowers and even sides of caviar. Amelia Restaurant and Lounge boasts a mouthwatering menu: raw dishes include ceviche, tiradito and sushi, and hot dishes include Wagyu steaks, lamb and poultry. Amelia offers a wide variety of Japanese, Lebanese and Peruvian cuisines.
Furthermore, there’s also a dining space finished in burnt orange hues, with two rows of neat booths leading up to the DJ booth, backdropped by a full height archway that perfectly frames the Burj Khalifa. Head up the stairs, and you’ll find a crescent-shaped, dimly lit dining room, where more tables of hungry guests can sample the restaurant menu. The original in Beirut is housed in a historic, 500-year-old building, and translating that into a modern Downtown Dubai venue is no easy feat. Yet somehow, that’s exactly what Amelia Lounge has achieved.
