Darbaar By Abdul Yaseen - Snowden St, London
Darbaar Restaurant and Bar is Located near Shoreditch in the city of London and is the flagship site for celebrated chef Abdul Yaseen, previously of Cinnamon Club and Cinnamon Kitchen and so required a certain level of design.
This 5,500 sq ft contemporary Indian restaurant has been designed to suit the brief of a shared dining experience inspired by the banquets of the Indian Royal Court. We were tasked with creating a modern day interpretation of the palaces of ancient India and so the restaurant features chandeliers, ornate mirrors and drapes to soften the huge dinig hall. The dedicated bar interior has a glamorous feel with dramatic lighting, Mahogany timbers, vibrant velvet seating and glass walls. The newly installed 8m open kitchen and cook counter has been designed to create an interaction between customer and staff and show off Abduls skills along side the chefs table. Service at Darbaar is never out of site with the wine wall being a main feature that spans across the private dining area surrounded by a red shimmer screen and beaded wall papers from Arte, giving glimpses through the service bar. The exquisite art work and tapestries depicting scenes from the Royal Courts were supplied by JFA Contracts and were handpicked from all over the world to give Darbaar the finishing touches it deserved.
