Sponsored: A venue with that je ne sais quoi

Since opening its doors more than two decades ago, La Cantine Du Faubourg, has been the rendez-vous of choice for many Dubai folk who are in search of a hip lunch spot, sophisticated dinner, after-work drinks, or weekend brunch.

Located on the lobby level of luxury hotel Jumeirah Emirates Towers, an intriguing entry way lit up with dim red lighting and olive trees leads down a candlelit corridor and eventually into the restaurant – a whole new world away from Dubai. From the decor to the dishes, the intimate venue reinstates ‘elegant insanity’ with its lively ambiance and oozes style and sophistication in pure Parisian form.

La Cantine du Faubourg

La Cantine Du Faubourg relies on five main principles to ensure it caters to all the senses: sound, music, image, art and food. From live music to statement art such as the iconic Elton John art piece, the restaurant successfully marries the grandeur of Dubai with the essence of Paris.

By day, there’s an exciting offering for every day of the week from business lunch to weekend brunch. When dusk falls the Parisian paradise ushers in cocktails, cigars and sultry tunes.
