PAPA Dubai, A Vibrant Entertainment Destination in Al Habtoor City

by DubaiCity Author

The PAPA Dubai is an exciting 1,580 square meters dining and entertainment destination in the vibrant Atrium complex, the dining and entertainment epicentre of riverside Al Habtoor City. PAPA will take its visitors on an extraordinary culinary and mixology journey through nine glorious bars, each themed with a unique concept. Comfort and soul food are at the very heart of the dining experience. Apart from that, the fascinating bars have been developed in collaboration with Moscow and Dubai’s top bartending figures. It offers nine very distinctive bars, each with its unique offering. Its massive space comprises little ‘boulevards,’ including the Rum Station, Champagne Avenue, Gin Point, Vodka Lane, Tequila Road, Snake Alley, Whiskey Square, and the VIP Lounge. A cohesive feel has been achieved, with archways in different finishings to create a unified design.

According to an article, each bar has its distinctive vibe and personality, transforming from a chic restaurant to an elegant party venue and after club-bar. Lighting plays a fundamental role in this transition, and 4SPACE designers have carefully integrated the architectural and entertainment lighting with five distinctive ambient moods based on the time of day and desired experience. The feminine Champagne bar features a pretty pink décor, a pink terrazzo bar, bubbly textures, and organic patterns featured on the archways and mouldings and printed on the banquette seating. Four classically styled chandelier lighting ensures a romantic vibe. The Rum Station is an eccentric tiki-style bar with impressive totem poles, bamboo accents, and vibrant art that adorns the walls.

The Retro Gin Point and Vodka Lane’s entertainment is centred around an oversized disco ball centred in the arched ceiling. Black and silky steel colours predominate throughout the bar, with black and white terrazzo highlighted features. Bold UV graffiti has been painted on the mesh screens. Continuing the slightly masculine feel, the whiskey bar has rich art deco styling, onyx accents, and moody lighting. According to its website, the world has discovered mezcal, and demand is enormous. This wonderful sipping spirit has an aura and a wildly unexplored variety. But the good stuff – the spirit of the endless desert horizons – is hard to come by. Its unparalleled inventiveness turns every visit to Mezcal Street into a Day of the Living. Furthermore, Papa Dubai is famous as an urban playground of avant-garde cocktails, world-class cuisine, and irresistible beats in Business Bay’s heart.

On the other hand, the Japanese sake bar is cleverly designed around the ancient Japanese Kumiki joinery method, accentuated with brick fascias that are stabbed for texture and filled with plaster. The subtle lighting represents a peaceful zen garden and reflects circular patterns on the floor. Striking artwork and graffiti lines the walls. The Wine Court is designed as a well-stocked wine cellar, with four prominent arches and an oversized mirror that reflects the arches into nine. Terracotta lines the walls and the floors, while the statement arched ceiling is a mixture of bricks and mirrors. The VIP Lounge is the night’s final destination; it’s eccentric, opulent, and has an enormous arch with distinctive copper mesh walls, lavish black marble floors, and lounge seating. The DJ booth has state-of-the-art lighting and circular kinetic mirrors for party appeal. Even the toilets are Instagram-worthy with circular installations, stretched mannequin legs, and fun house-style mirrors.
