Papa Dubai is an exciting 1,580-sq-m entertainment destination in the vibrant Atrium complex, the dining and entertainment epicentre of riverside Al Habtoor City in Dubai.
Comfort and soul food are at the heart of the dining experience that takes visitors from evening to the early hours. World-respected bartending figures from Dubai and Moscow partnered with 4Space to create nine stunning bars and mixology concepts like no other.
4Space, recognised as one of the finest interior design firms in the region, is renowned for intentionally disrupting interior design concepts and providing unique, well-considered and memorable entertainment spaces throughout Dubai, the rest of the UAE and further afield in the Middle East. The latest extraordinary nine bar concept in the vast Al Habtoor dining and entertainment complex is no different. 4Space was challenged with an extensive brief to create an urban playground that serves world-class cuisine and cocktails to irresistible beats.
4Space partnered with the world’s finest mixologists from Dubai and Moscow to create an exclusive transformational venue. Papa’s seamlessly shifts from a sophisticated and immersive dining experience to a chic after-party venue with DJs and entertainment as the evening moves to night. Papa’s vibe shifts throughout the evening as the energies rise from an after work chillout to an all-night party atmosphere.
Papa’s has nine very distinctive bars, each with different offerings, with the total space made up of little ‘boulevards’. It’s got a cohesive village feel, with archways in different finishings used throughout the expansive space to allow a unified design between each of the bars. The monochromatic colour approach allows a seamless transition between each distinctive bar. As the tempo picks up, the lighting transforms. 4Space designers seamlessly integrated the architectural and entertainment lighting with five distinctive ambient moods based on the time of day and desired experience.
Each bar has its own distinctive vibe and personality and transforms daily from a chic restaurant where you can dine in style as the evening draws to a close. As nighttime falls over the city, the restaurant becomes an elegant party venue and after club-bar.
The VIP Lounge is the final destination of the night; 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.
