Tonique in patnership with Jumeirah Hotels and Absolut, managed and executed a “pop-up” concept for Art Dubai 2016, the prestigious international art fair. The Elyx Bar, located on Fort Island, Madinat Jumeirah was a creative expression of luxury styling combining themes of “Raw and Luxe”, “Old and Chic”, “Modern and Vintage.”
The Elyx Bar became the after-hours venue of Art Dubai 2016. Visitors were treated to an exciting programme of entertainment with Absolut mixologists serving a selection of cocktails, created especially for the Art Dubai. Helping to set the after-hours vibe playing quality tunes were some of Dubai’s finest DJs.
The Elyx Bar featured a dramatic Long Bar with a towering black and white back bar with elegant copper detailing, inspired by the Ahus distillery in Sweden, the Home of Elyx. As part of the overall aesthetic, the Elyx Bar also featured bespoke alfresco furniture including high backed Peacock Chairs, natural fibres, festoon lighting and lounge seating set against a vibrant tropicana-chic style.
