Diwan

Diwan at Aga Khan

This ornate dining space (and a member of the McEwan restaurant family) evokes the luxury of a private 19th-century Syrian home. Decorated wood panels, hand-carved and painted in Damascus in 1799 adorn the walls of the restaurant and a sunlit patio overlooks the gardens of Aga Khan park.

Atrium & Courtyard

 Diwan Atrium & Courtyard

Described by the architect Fumihiko Maki as “the heart of the Museum” and nestled like a crystal jewel box in the centre of the building, the glassed-in courtyard throws dramatic patterns of light and shadow onto the walls of the atrium. Host your event under the stars in the warmer months and watch the falling snow from inside the atrium in the winter.

Bellerive Room

Diwan Bellerive Room

Inspired by a room in the Château de Bellerive near Geneva, enjoy an intimate Persian-style salon complete with a collection of ceramics that date back as far as the 9th century. Originally conceived by Prince Sadruddin Aga Khan and Princess Catherine Aga Khan for their residence in Switzerland, the room has been carefully reimagined in the Aga Khan Museum.
