Last night, around 250 of the region's most influential faces came together in d3 to celebrate the opening of the Harper's Bazaar Café, the result of a joint venture between Hearst International and UAE-based hospitality operator Marka Holdings. The opening marks the first ever café associated with the Harper's Bazaar brand, and a second location in Dubai's CityWalk is scheduled to open in the second half of this year. 
 
During the evening, guests mingled as they ate a selection of canapés from the contemporary European menu in the chic interior space. 
 
Open for breakfast and lunch, the Café is set to be the destination of choice for the region's fashion-, art- and design-loving crowd. See the gallery above for your insider pass to the evening's festivities.
