Following a brief closure, AmazónicoDubai announces its reopening on Wednesday, 8 September following a showstopping interior revamp. From the Bar & Lounge through to the Sushi Counter and Rooftop, the entire space has been reimagined and enhanced within less than 30 days, allowing guests to rediscover an even wilder jungle paradise.
This fresh look signals the start of a new chapter for the much-loved restaurant with the addition of a late-night, energetic music programme, extended opening hours, updated cocktails, and an array of Latin American dishes.
At the helm of the re-design as always, is the acclaimedLázaro Rosa-Violán, a celebrated globetrotter who is responsible for all Amazónicointeriors internationally. This time, he has taken inspiration from undiscovered landscapes in the Amazon, using natural materials throughout the restaurant to achieve a unique aesthetic.The result – a larger-than-life, vibrant Amazónicothat delves deeper into the rainforest than ever before.
“We are very proud of our new, and dare-I-say-it, improved Amazónico Dubai” says General Manager, Michele Jenman. “It’s been an incredible challenge to complete the project within such a short time frame, however the results speak for themselves and we can’t wait to welcome our guests back to experience it.’’
The Bar & Loungenowtakes centre-stage with a statement 10 metre cocktail bar that extends across the ground floor.Amazonian butterflies, or Mariposasfeature heavily across the restaurant; seen resting on the walls encased in glass and 3D hand-painted versions hang from the ceiling with each sculpture individually lit. These creatures, along with the two giant fire installations behind the bar,and in the indoor/outdoor terraces,bring an alluring charm to this space.
Almost unrecognisable with its burnt-orange banquets and lofty ceilings is the stunning Sushi Counterthat has almost doubled in size. Large, illuminated feathers in vivid colours, unusual woven-hessian lamps and tribal patterns create a captivating appeal in this informal dining spot. The sushi bar faces out into an extended seating area and enclosed terrace, that allows guests to enjoy both alfresco dining with the comfort of air conditioning.
Hanging by the top of the iconic staircase sits a grand chandelier of preserved plants, 22 species to be precise, interwoven with delicate lights and weighing over 250kg. This feature is suspended above new service bar and opposite panels of tribal-inspired wall art, created using cement moulded into mesmerising rope patterns.
Night owls can take advantage of the elevated Lounge experience that includes premium bottle service, late night kitchen opening hours and performances from both guests and resident DJs. The perfect place to dance to Amazónico’s renowned elec-tropical beats long into the evening.
Opening in October will be the hotly anticipatedRooftopBarcomplete with a jaw dropping new look that promises to be the party destination of the season. Gear up for the big re-opening celebration later in the year.
