Makar Bar

Radisson Blu Waterfront, Dubai

A Scottish snug bar

Background and brief

Radisson Blu Hotel Waterfront Dubai offers a new experience to the customers with unique place of Makar ‘snug’ bar, cigar emporium and eatery that follows the Iconic, Stylish & Sophisticated brand values.

Our Solution

Makar is a comfortable and secluded grown-up space that offers a range of whisky, served by a discreet service in a relaxed ambience of chunky seating with a ‘cotton-wool’ effect of music & lighting. Food is served all day, from morning through to late night offering Scottish dishes created with a regional touch and ingredients. The rest of the menu uses local, seasonal items with separate bar snacks menu. Scottish beer is on draft, supported by a range of micro beers and a selection of whiskys.

The use of materials evokes typical Scottish pubs and home interiors, with dark wood, quarry slate and touches of reclaimed highland copper that you would expect to find in a distillery and walk-in humidor with members’ lockers that gives a real, authentic Scottish touch where all whisky & cigar lovers will find their dream place.
