THE BLACK BOOK
This month’s names, numbers and addresses of note
Our fashion story this month, Night Life, was shot on location at the French bar and restaurant, Brasserie Angélique in Etihad Towers, Abu Dhabi. The design and decor of this stunning venue is not like anywhere else currently in the capital. From the parquet and tiled floors to the ornate ceiling mouldings and chandeliers, you feel like you could be somewhere incredibly swish in Paris, and so it was perfect for this story. Situated on the ground floor (P3), close to the entrance of the Avenue mall, guests can dine in the main area, on bistrostyle tables, or in the more private boothed seating area. The cuisine is classic French à la carte, with an emphasis on traditional, home-style dishes (think onion soup and cassoulet) with a menu that changes seasonally. Snacks, pastries, cafes au lait and crêpes are available throughout the day.
