The winner of this year’s Bars & Clubs award, BOA Lounge & Club, designed by Bishop Design, was hailed for its extravagance. Located on the rooftop of The W Hotel, Al Habtoor City, the judges described the night club as “theatrical, glamourous and seductive”.
Upon receiving the award, Paul Bishop commented: “I’m ecstatic. It’s an amazing award to win and a new one to add to the collection. Special thank you to the Habtoor Group for being easy clients. I’m at a loss for words.
“What sets us apart from the competitors was the way we approached the design, it’s a nightclub but it’s also an ultra-club. It’s reinvented the Dubai night scene and to be awarded for such a project is an amazing thing.”
The central stage flanked by the bar is the “true heart of the venue”, as the judges described it.
One judge added: “This project adds a new dimension to nightclubs in Dubai. A projection of high intensity, dramatised spatial spaces that live true to its functional aspirations.”
The judges said that the highly commended project, El Chiringuito Ibiza.Dubai by Anarchitect, delivered beautiful space with a laid-back, warm and relaxing feel.
The award was presented by Khaled Alami, managing director from Huda Lighting.
