Bringing today’s NYC bar culture to a city and community that has ambitions of being at the centre of the cultural landscape of tomorrow.
Semi Permanent partnered with New York’s renowned ‘It’ venue The Flower Shop NYC — a regular stop for the likes of Rob Pattinson, Sienna Miller and Evan Mock, to create a first-in-region pop-up restaurant residency for the city of Abu Dhabi with the Department of Culture and Tourism. Through an acute respect for the delicate balance in helping the NYC establishment stay true to its origins, whilst taking its first global step of expansion was a comfortable move for Semi Permanent. Everything from the 1026 burger patties served to the community gathered polaroids on the wall and the custom pool tables were well considered and resulted in a big success, especially within a pandemic year.
“What does a Michelin-lauded burger taste like? At The Flower Shop in Abu Dhabi, it comes with a twist of unexpected flavours and extra preparation, and it goes down satisfyingly well.”
