Boutique, Bohemian and bursting with colour – Indie is everything you probably don’t associate with DIFC. Maybe that’s why it’s always packed to the rafters.
Serving up inventive mixed drinks, knock-out live music throughout the week and a busy Saturday (party) brunch, the vibe behind the funky front door is upbeat and deeply laid-back. Staff are friendly, service is swift and the bar bites are hugely popular for good reason (the scent alone of the wasabi-ginger-topped sliders whooshing past is almost enough to separate you from your bar stool).
Though a Beirut import (as a number of the city’s greatest nightspots are), the mismatched assortment of bold hues, textures and furnishings feels more Havana, Cuba. The music policy is just as varied, with house and funk, as well as indie nights. What might sound a little confused couldn’t feel more cohesive, entertaining and accessible.
Arrive after 10pm, any night of the week, and you won’t want to leave. The bottom line Vibrant spot attracting a cool crowd.
