LPM Restaurant & Bar, the celebrated home of French Mediterranean cuisine, is set to entice the senses with their newest bar program, ‘Cinq à Sept’, launching in Dubai and Abu Dhabi on September 18th. Inspired by the rich tradition of aperitif in the South of France and Mediterranean countries, this provocative concept invites guests to indulge in beverages and delectable bites during the enchanting hours between 5pm and 7pm. With a playful nod to the double meaning of ‘Cinq à Sept’, the time between leaving work and arriving home presents a time of mystery and enchantment, a time between two worlds where one can slip into the unknown, and where one can meet with friends, or if they dare, be discovered by a chosen one.

At LPM, ‘Cinq à Sept’ will create a buzzing atmosphere for friends and colleagues to unwind, paying homage to the nostalgic days of spending holidays on the French Riviera, where time stops, hearts beat a little faster, and the laughter and conversations never end. Fresh, cheeky, and whimsical music will fill the air through a curated playlist full of playful songs aimed to make LPM a go-to destination for after work drinks.

As one of the main minds behind this offering, award-winning Global Bar Manager at LPM Restaurant & Bar, Tibor Krascsenics, said“We were incredibly excited to embark on the journey of creating the ‘Cinq à Sept’ bar program at LPM Restaurant & Bar. It’s a concept that allows us to embrace the playful and mysterious nature of aperitivo culture, as well as one that is very often neglected in terms of quality drink offering in order to propose lower priced deals. We worked hard to bring together the best of both worlds and hope to bring something different to our guests at that time. The menu and cocktails we’ve crafted are a labour of love and a reflection of our commitment to creativity, designed to ignite the senses and create an atmosphere where connections are made, friendships flourish, and perhaps even sparks fly. With ‘Cinq à Sept,’ we invite cocktail aficionados, art lovers, and anyone seeking an escape from the fast-paced modern world to join us in this delightful rendez-vous. After all, traffic and finding a taxi home in the DIFC area can be so agitating at those hours, why not make LPM your home a few days of the week? We can’t wait to welcome our guests into the world of ‘Cinq à Sept’ and share this journey of pleasure and connection with them.”

To kickstart the experience, LPM presents a selection of handcrafted cocktails, embodying the essence of the ‘him and her’.
