Qbara is a contemporary lifestyle restaurant, lounge & bar that embraces Middle Eastern cuisine and culture with a ground breaking modern twist.
Qbara Dubai at WAFI is the brainchild of JAS Hospitality – a Dubai-based hospitality development and management studio – dedicated to bringing compelling food, immaculate service and glamorous design to Dubai and the region.
Enhanced by vibrant entertainment elements, Qbara will be adding a stylish and exciting new highlight to Dubai’s increasingly sophisticated dining scene.
The menu features passionately composed dishes inspired by the great Levant, Middle Eastern and Moroccan cuisines with a focus on high-quality, fresh ingredients, the use of indigenous spices, contemporary cooking methods and careful presentation. The culinary vision is to set quintessentially authentic flavors into contemporary, modern context.
Qbara’s spectacular interiors have been conceived by award-winning Tokyo-based interior design Studio Glitt – Noriyoshi Muramatsu – who skillfully created a magical vernacular of traditional Middle Eastern cultural elements set in juxtaposition with a ultra-contemporary design philosophy.
The venue’s interiors lavishly spread over two floors with a focal stage bar and a cosy restaurant area forming the ground floor and luxuriously comfortable lounge seating areas on an elevated multi-level balcony above. The architectural centre piece is a two-storey tall vertical installation of carved timber panels that also serve as a projection surface for visual art displays.
The ambience is distinctly high-energy, fashionable & sophisticated yet casual and fun.
After all it’s all in the Name....
‘Qbara’ as such can mean ‘large & generous’ but spelt backwards could almost sound like ‘Arabic’ representing a departure from the traditional – not authenticity – and thus intrinsically an ancient word with a twist to encapsulate a wholly new and modern concept.
