The Grosvenor House Hotel in Dubai is a luxury hotel located in the Dubai Marina. Known for its elegance, outstanding accommodations and fine dining it is a distinctive and luxurious destination for travellers seeking a truly memorable and upscale experience.

Now situated on the 43rd floor with a 360-degree view of the Dubai skyline is City Social, a Michelin-starred culinary experience that has taken cues from its sister location in London and given them a Middle Eastern twist.

Thanks to Studio Lumen this incredible dining experience by British acclaimed celebrity chef Jason Atherton City Social plays host to unmatched lighting concepts right from the drawing board.

The restaurant features a bar with a terrace and a grand staircase with a never-ending wine cellar as its backdrop. The dynamic New York-style grill features tableside service complemented by live Jazz performances where diners can sit back and enjoy culinary delights while soaking in breathtaking views of Bluewater’s Island.

The romantic setting is enhanced by lighting that has relied on Studio Lumen’s knowledge and expertise. Indirect lighting has been woven into the interior architecture alongside feature chandeliers to ensure the ambience of the space is extensively amplified to provide the perfect guest experience.

The combination of culture and modernity was an important factor in the lighting concept for this incredible location, with lighting design by Studio Lumen integral to curating settings that evoke emotion and visually appealing spaces.

Studio Lumen worked closely throughout this project with the core interior design team from LW, to achieve the balance required to accent the splendour of the location and to provide the right navigation throughout the different locations, all with functionality, flexibility, and energy efficiency at the forefront of their minds.
