Wet your whistle for AED 35
Some of the city’s coolest watering holes are joining in on the fun by crafting cocktails that showcase their bartender’s mixology skills. Your bar tabs will be affordable but your beverages will be beyond compare – signature cocktails at some of this plush venues start at AED 35 per drink. And the spirits that go into these cocktails are high-end brands, so you’re in for a flavourful buzz.
Trendy drinking establishments such as Bla Bla, Coya, Noepe, Salmon Guru and more are part of the festival and will be celebrating the art of mixology with unique new cocktails. Barflys can also enjoy tried-and-tested favourites such as Old Fashioneds, Margaritas and Martinis at these places.
