Located on London's Ganton Street in Soho, this unique bar and club is inspired by the magic and mystery of the African continent. Visitors are drawn into an imaginary world where the environment embraces the heart and soul of Africa, and all inhibitions are left behind.
The bold designs are created by interior architects Satmoko Ball. Inspiration has been drawn from traditional African art and the ancient archaeological sites of Western Africa. Earthy colours, stone structures and a unique light installation designed by Regis Vidal, add to the overall authenticity of Umbaba.
The colonial VIP safari tent offers complete seclusion from the rest of the Republic. Draped in light fabrics and lit by the soft light of candles, it is the final stage of the fantasy journey through Umbaba. Like a mysterious African country, Umbaba offers a range of environments, tastes and sounds. From the exotic African-inspired food, the flowing cocktails, to the deep rhythmic music, Umbaba is a continuous journey into the unknown.
