Themed spaces are always the areas where the mind can roam free and put together outrageous color combinations, great mixtures of materials and so much more. Especially in Dubai it seems that anything goes. Trader Vic’s is onto their third restaurant in the UAE, and this tiki themed location has a stunning sophisticated outcome.
Located in Festival City, this family friendly restaurant and bar with views for days fits in perfectly to the mixed-use area. Blues, greens, mosaic tiles, bamboo details, and gorgeous ceiling designs all complement each other in the sushi bar and restaurant layout. The entire restaurant is an open space, divided up by function but kept together by the grandeur of the high ceilings. Ceiling fans on the terrace keep guests cool on the warmest of days, and decorative accents such as canoes, lobster pots and your usual William Baker additions are all thrown in there, too.
