ERGO BAR & KITCHEN DUBAI - BRAND NEW BAR CONCEPT BY JIMMY BARRAT OPENS DOORS AT DUBAI EDITION HOTEL

 

 

The bartender-led concept is the brainchild of Jimmy himself...

 

Jimmy Barrat himself, who is a global bar industry leader and was formerly the Global Bar Development Director for Zuma restaurants, has opened up a new bar at Downtown Dubai's The Dubai Edition Hotel! Ergo Dubai brings to life all the touches and elements that a leading bar should have, but it is the approach to the ambience, feeling, and philosophy that gives it its unique edge. The spirit and energy of the venue have been carefully curated by Jimmy himself.

“It is a passion project,” says Jimmy Barrat. “I finally have the independence and freedom to bring to life my own vision of what a bar means to me. It’s a very exciting time for me and the Ergo team. We’re going to have fun and not take ourselves too seriously.”

 

 

 

THE VIBES - WHAT TO EXPECT AT ERGO

 

 

The venue has an overwhelming retro urbanity that is blended with a neo-futuristic sensibility.

 

Modernity is in the minimalism of Ergo Dubai's space with the Kintsugi cracked concrete walls, black Marquina marble bar top, stainless steel touchpoints, and Palladiana stone floors. Alongside the venue’s urban chic and hard furnishings, there is a balance and warmth found through the seductive leather banquets and beautiful lighting. Working with the up-and-coming architecture & interior design team “Standpartners” to craft the aura of the venue.

Guests can expect the artistic flair that Jimmy is renowned for when they are met with words describing the feeling of Ergo Dubai, which has been painted by Milanese calligraphy artist Luca Barcellona. In a restaurant, one usually goes through the bar to get to the dining area, but this is a bar, with bartenders, for everyone. As the first bartender-led experience in Dubai, guests will come through the dining area to get to the bar, thus flipping the traditional F&B hierarchy on its head.
