Emaar adds Toko in Vida Downtown to portfolio

Emaar Hospitality Group is launching Toko in Vida Downtown, a contemporary Japanese dine-in that presents Izakaya dining of promoting social interactions in its finest traditions.
Set in Downtown Dubai, Toko is for connoisseurs of Japanese cuisine with a trendy new ambience.
The Toko brand first opened its doors in 2007 in Sydney, and quickly set a benchmark for contemporary Japanese dining.
Toko at Vida Downtown has an intimate restaurant and lounge setting, expansive terrace and a mezzanine private dining area.
Matthew Darwon, the celebrated Australian architect who designed Toko Sydney, is the mind behind Toko Dubai too. He brings a sense of traditional aesthetics with a creative twist that is central to the Toko identity. He draws on a minimalist neutral palette of natural timbers and streamlined joinery, with Reni Kung lighting accents.
Olivier Harnisch, chief executive of Emaar Hospitality Group, said: “Toko Dubai has redefined the Japanese cuisine experience with its contemporary interpretation and inimitable presentation style. It complements the philosophy of Vida to serve as social hubs for the young and trendy. The addition of Toko Dubai further strengthens our Lifestyle Dining division, which is focused on delivering exceptional and memorable dining choices. Toko Dubai will delight Japanese food enthusiasts as well as those who want to discover the current trends in dining at one of the city’s trendiest restaurants.”
In addition to the main restaurant setting, Toko Dubai’s lounge overlooks the Mohammed bin Rashid Boulevard with intimate lounge booths and an expansive open design. It will serve beverages designed by the Toko Sydney team in addition to a full dinner menu.
Toko Dubai will feature live music and a deejay daily bringing the vibes of a social gathering to the lounge. Further, a private Toko garden and terrace enables guests to enjoy a full-dinner menu in a Japanese-style garden environment. The garden has calming water features, floating Japanese umbrellas, and Bonsai trees.
