About

Located at the heart of the city next to Soho, serving cocktails inspired by flavors found in the Middle East. The vision is to offer this busy city a subtle and curated lifestyle. The design begins with a special Bait-al-Sha’ar reception.  When the curtain is lifted, the dimmed lighting arouses a sense of mystery arriving at this hidden cave like oasis. Cream color plaster is hand painted throughout the space giving a warm and earthy vibe that is unique to the Middle Eastern architecture, while also creating minimalist modern interior that highlights the shapes and form.

+
Middle-Eastern inspired arches, water fountains, and various silhouettes put a modern twist to the traditional Middle Eastern architecture and landscape.
