The world’s first Bentley Café has just opened its doors to the public in the Dubai Marina. It is not just a café. Patrons have the benefit of sipping their latte’s while browsing the luxury branded items at the adjoining Boutique whilst surrounded by the latest models from the luxury automaker. Joanna Andrews witnessed the birth of the up-market café.
Dubai is all about glitz and glamour. You can’t get much better than Bentley. The world's first Bentley Café & Boutique boasts a designer menu offering the finest selection of gourmet coffee and snack including luxury Bentley-branded chocolates and macaroons, all handcrafted by a master chef using farmsourced and fresh ingredients. For the ultra-health conscious, the café also offers signature juices and detoxifying drinks designed to burn fat or energize.
The coffee varieties are named after the latest Bentley cars including the Mulsanne, a traditional Arabic coffee; the Flying Spur, an Ethiopian bean; or the Continental GT, a Colombian brand.
The Bentley Café is reflective of its high-end brand. It is contemporary and classic in style.
The café was officially inaugurated in early November by Khalaf Ahmad Al Habtoor, Founder and Chairman of the Al Habtoor Group.
“We are delighted to witness the birth of the world’s first-ever Bentley Café and Boutique. We look forward to opening the second café in 2016 in our iconic Bentley Motors showroom on Sheikh Zayed Road. It will be the first of a handful of purpose built Bentley showrooms in major cities around the world,” Al Habtoor said.
Patrons have the choice of sitting in or outdoors. Bentley owners have the privilege to book the entire café for their own personal events.
"When it comes to the Bentley Café, there's nothing quite like it; the extraordinary attention to detail, both in terms of the ambience and the menu. With the Bentley Café, we present a one of its kind, stylishly discreet and luxurious experience," said Karl Hamer, Managing Director of Al Habtoor Motors.
Bentley-branded merchandise includes stylish handbags and briefcases, luxury backgammon sets in Beluga, as well as the traditional Lalique for Bentley Crystal Flying B paperweight. If you fancy walking away with something a little more expensive, there’s always the latest car from the luxury carmaker.
