Bapas - Restaurant & Bar Design Awards 2014 Winner - ME category

Bapas’ sleek and relaxed atmosphere has not only been a hit with Dubai restaurant patrons, but the Restaurant & Bar lounge recently gained global notoriety in the restaurant industry by winning the prestigious Restaurant and Bar Design Award in the Middle East & Africa Bar category for 2014.

Dubai-based LW Design created this moody, welcoming interior by incorporating traditional Belgian elements with sharp industrial accents. The union of zinc tiling, contrasting dark wood and chic filament bulb lighting perfectly compliments owners'  vision of providing a space for engaging conversations and delectable dishes.

The Restaurant and Bar Design Award judges lauded LW Design for establishing a “balance between vintage elements” and “modern industrial details.” Also highlighted is the intimacy of the restaurant’s vestibule. Upon entering Bapas, patrons are greeted by a cozy room that “feels like a private house,” the judges noted, with a fireplace, a mantelpiece and “striking” Damask wallpaper.

The glamorously gothic décor blends in with the urban feel of a window wall marked with elegant metal frames and a band of frosted panels. This glass feature, the judges said, formed a “happy marriage” between the bustling street life outside and the comforting space within.
