Bishop Design by Paul Bishop have been shortlisted for Restaurant – Global Award in The International Hotel and Property Awards 2020.
Echoing hues of the Bohemian era, Boho Social creates an eclectic experience for the people of Qatar. When one of the biggest names in the hospitality industry reached out to Bishop Design with a unique food and beverage destination in the bustling heart of Qatar in mind, there was no way the design studio could turn the opportunity down. FLIP International have established themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the industry as they boast a multitude of successful hospitality concepts in their portfolio. This most recent venture was to reside on Katara Beach – the latest “it” destination in Qatar.
Desiring a complete contrast to existing offerings in Qatar and the Middle East, Bishop Design were given the brief to create a dynamic social destination. This hub was to be eclectic, yet modern, and would echo hues of the Bohemian era. When stripped back this ideology of bohemian lifestyle represents a free spirit; a traveller and creative. Alas, Boho Social was born. These characteristics have been beautifully embraced throughout the entire interior styling, building a venue that concretizes itself as a new era to Doha and Qatar in its entirety.
Fluid poured terrazzo gives a striking effect as the ground pours into the centre of the space. Pattern-happy accessories, traditional ottoman chairs and fabric colour waves all converge to create this unique overlay of infectious energy and palpable excitement. Eclectic modernism encapsulates this interior realm which is mirrored across the exterior as the terrace elevates an intoxicating mélange of furniture, whilst Paolo Lenti rugs gracefully transport guests through the external experience. A statement of unassuming elegance and a diverse experience in arguably one of the most desirable destinations in the country, Boho Social is paving the way towards a new era for Qatar.
