Flamingo Room by tashas, the beloved concept inspired by African Glamour, is pleased to announce its expansion with new locations opening in Abu Dhabi and Riyadh. Following the success of its location at Jumeirah Al Naseem and with strategic growth plans in place for Tashas Group, the expansion comes as Flamingo Room celebrates 6 years in the UAE, marking an exciting new chapter and milestone in the brand’s story. The two venues, planned to open in Q3 2023 will also feature new brand concepts at each location.
The newest venue in Riyadh will be sitting in the heart of the city within the buzzing neighbourhood of Diriyah, Saudi Arabia’s foremost historic and cultural city, in the Bujairi Terrace, nestled on the banks of the Wadi Hanifah riverbed. The three-storey building, inspired by indigenous Najd architecture, will house three unique and distinct concepts, including Flamingo Room by tashas, African Lounge, Collective Africa, a luxury retail venue, as well as the Stargaze Garden on the rooftop.
African Lounge draws inspiration from the beautiful, tented Safari camps set in the wilds of Africa, the design is both beautiful and curiously playful. Serving a decadent high tea, elegant afro-fusion bites and delicious non-alcoholic cocktails, it is destined to be a place to see and be seen. Everything about this concept gives a nod to the rich, natural beauty of the continent and celebrates the savage beauty of a forgotten Africa. The Stargaze Garden, on the other hand, will be a magical al fresco dining space available for private events offering breathtaking views of the Wadi Hanifah riverbed.
Abu Dhabi’s Flamingo Room by tashas will open its doors at the luxurious retail and commerce centre, The Galleria, Al Maryah Island. The new addition to the Flamingo Room family in the UAE will introduce four unique spaces, including Flamingo Room by tashas, African Lounge, Collective Africa and an exclusive bar, Perlage.
Perlage will be the latest addition to the Group’s growing bar portfolio each having a very distinct identity. Inspired by the meaning of the word “perlage”, the floating bubbles that occur in a glass filled with champagne, the focus will be on delicious, curated champagne-based cocktails. The space, bathed in red maroon, will be filled with bespoke art and will be a unique addition to the new location in Abu Dhabi.
Founder and CEO of Tashas Group, Natasha Sideris says “We are thrilled to be expanding Flamingo Room by tashas into KSA and Abu Dhabi, and we look forward to bringing African glamour to these cities. Our guests can expect the same elevated dining experience and engaging service that they have come to know and love, with a playful sophistication that is unique to Flamingo Room.”
The new restaurants will offer guests the chance to indulge in all of Flamingo Room by tashas’ hero dishes, from the mouth-watering Calamari Mozambique and delightful Lobster Pasta, along with the decadent Baked Alaska dessert. Known for its exceptional setting, beautiful food, stunning environments, and engaging service, Flamingo Room by tashas promises a highly personalised and unforgettable culinary experience, from day to night.
These unique locations offer multiple concepts under one roof providing guests with an array of experiences that include not only elevated dining, high tea, and luxury retail but also beautiful intimate lounges.
