Buddha Bar Dubai
Jul 20 , 2011
Dubai has grown into the top destination for the rich and beautiful. At the forefront of this expansion is Buddha Bar Dubai, a luxury restaurant, bar, and lounge that must be experienced to be understood. Read on to discover what waits at the Persian Gulf's most beautiful bar setting.
The Buddha Bar name is synonymous with lounge luxury, with a collection of bars in the world’s hippest locations, including Paris, New York, Bombay, and Monaco. The brand was founded by a Parisian DJ, so it should come as no surprise that Buddha Bar also has a music compilation series of the hottest lounge and club songs. With this in mind, you can expect Buddha Bar Dubai to deliver an unforgettable, world-class lounge experience.
Buddha Bar Dubai is a leading example of Dubai’s new class of luxury bar and hang-out spots. Located at Grosvenor House in Dubai Marina, which itself is one of the city’s premier luxury hotels, Buddha Bar Dubai offers views and experiences that are unrivaled by the city’s other clubs and lounges. As you approach the bar’s entrance, you’ll immediately see that it takes pride in its incredible atmosphere and attention to detail. A red carpet leads to its front entrance, and a doorman offers entry through its large front doors.
The Atmosphere: Relaxed, cool
Your first impression of Buddha Bar Dubai might lead you to believe that it houses a stuffy, pretentious atmosphere, but rest assured that you’ll only find a relaxed aura of ‘cool’. Once inside, you’ll be greeted by servers who will direct you to a table or to the bar.
Daytime = Mealtime
If you plan on checking out Buddha Bar Dubai during the day, be sure to bring your appetite, and your corporate expense account – the restaurant’s food is fantastic, but pricey. The sushi, for example, is of the highest quality, but can run up to $60 a roll. If you’re hoping to find a romantic dinner location during your stay, look no further than Buddha Bar Dubai. The interior is dark, with many cozy hideaways to share a special evening with someone. Tables are lit by small red candles, which only serve to further enhance the mood.
Buddha Bar’s floor to ceiling windows offer incredible views of the Dubai marina outside, further adding to the romantic atmosphere. The restaurant makes sure to take care of its guests, and the exemplary service will be sure to recommend great dishes and wines, and they’re more than eager to accommodate special requests (like elaborate wedding proposals).
Sun down, soul rise
In the evening and at night, the lounge and bar areas come alive. Buddha Bar Dubai serves up delicious, expensive cocktails, and well-to-do patrons dress their best to hang out in the lavish setting. It can get crowded, but you’ll find that the crowd never loses its cool – everyone is here to chill out and quietly enjoy him or herself. If you’re in Dubai and you’re looking for the coolest place to relax and have a good time, Buddha Bar Dubai is a can’t-miss.
