Traiteur Bar

Designer wine bar for chic pre-meal drinks Discuss this article

If Dubai had a design award, Traiteur would win top prize for being the best-looking bar in the city. It’s simply stunning to look at with its beautifully crafted (and for once, immensely comfortable) bar stools and modern art pieces. But the pièce de résistance is their pulsating ceiling. Much like Herzog and De Meuron’s groundbreaking Allianz football stadium in Munich, the ceiling gradually changes colour, bathing the bar in warm shades of orange, violet and yellow.

But it won’t be Traiteur’s stunning aesthetics that keep you coming back again and again: its mammoth wine list is among the best in the city. If we had a complaint, it was that there are few wines you can buy by the glass, the cheapest being the light and palatable Duas Quintas at Dhs35 a pop. But it’s a small sacrifice to make for an evening of beautifully-crafted grandeur.
