Nippon is the first speakeasy bar in Dubai, inspired by Japanese nightlife. Nippon is more than just a bar. It’s a speakeasy concept that can be experienced on all kinds of levels, from social media to secret gateways in a hotel to sipping Japanese whiskey under subtle neon lights.
Creneau created, designed and developed it every step of the way, adding a new secret ingredient to the rich blend that is Dubai nightlife. In prohibition times, when alcohol was outlawed by the American authorities, a new kind of bar flourished in the darker corners of urban nightlife. These secret bars were called ‘speakeasies’. They were hidden places, built behind recreational rooms or private residencies. If you wanted to nd out where they were, someone had to tell you.
