Kiza - a multifunctional space by The First Ferry

UPDATE: KIZA has recently been adjudged as among the World's Best Designed Restaurants by The International Hotel & Property Awards 2016.

Art is the most intense mode of individualism that the world has known.
- Oscar Wilde

Kiza - a restaurant/ cafe/ lounge/ bar/ club. A new destination in Dubai that exudes everything that speaks Africa and its rich cultural heritage. A vision to empower and to promote an experience bestowed with uniqueness like that of the land itself. Located in Dubai International Finance Centre, conceptualized and designed by The First Ferry.

The lustrous marquetry scales the entrance doors fused with metallic finishing.

African inspired bespoke furniture and paintings adorn every inch of the space.

The standout feature at Kiza, the eccentric bar with its unique bamboo lighting fixture.

A cigar lounge, for the elite, designed essentially with parquet and wood finishing. Vintage furniture accentuates the space with royalty and class.

Furniture in the dining area carries a heavy inspiration from African art forms. Pillars are caparisoned with bamboo sticks. The dramatic fusion of artistic expression and individuality.

The entrance is devised with a corridor of portraits and a gallery fixture to showcase the splendor of the continent's artwork.
