Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown welcomes Off the Wall, a one-of-a-kind urban cocktail bar that pays homage to the bright lights and the bustling streets of the Satwa district.
With an inspired nostalgic setting Off the Wall is not only a sight to behold, but it is also a powerhouse on the beverage scene, making sure that every ingredient, every visitor, and every experience is given the utmost attention to detail.
At the new bar, the barmen are like artists, who push their creative boundaries when it comes to modern bartending and are ready to serve up a crafted imaginative beverage to impress the guests with unusual flavour combinations and multi-sensory experimental presentations. All signature cocktails are inspired by the prominent art pieces from around the world and the whole beverages menu revolves around creativity as well as artistic values with a bit of storytelling.
Curated cocktail craftsmanship is at the forefront, where traditional Arabic ingredients are used in a contemporary way to showcase what a cocktail can be nowadays, like a fig skin ink that is applied as a paint on the cocktail glasses, a homemade Arabic amaro digestive, and caramel crackers made from pineapple and dates. There are no boundaries of creativity at Off The Wall, whether it is the integration of home-made elements or adapting culinary techniques borrowed from the kitchen.
Off the Wall delivers on flavour, presentation, and variety with precision, making sure that the food is a delectable feast for everyone’s senses. The menu is bursting with flavour blending together contemporary and well-loved Asian street food dishes for a landscape of food that is truly diverse and exclusive to our tables. The new hotel bar presents pan-Asian bites in a casual surrounding where epicurean palates meet interior perfection and where it is possible to create different backdrops for a range of occasions.
Full of character, the entrance of the bar is lit from the ceiling by a light installation titled Tokyo Meet Dubai designed by locally based artist Maxime Cramatteof Satwa 3000. The installation is a fusion of Tokyo craziness and Satwa’s inspired design, that creates a powerful entrance experience with a futuristic twist.
Right after guests step into the bar, they will find the artworks of Syrian artist Baseen Rayynes who has painted two of his striking murals directly on the walls which are on either side of the entrance bar. The rest of the walls have a distressed brick effect, upon which is layered the Graffiti artwork by Paul Bruwer of The Domino art collective.
Wall art and graffiti in Off The Wall reflect Dubai’s recognition of these mainstream forms of art, that are nowadays as important as art exhibited in museums and galleries.
Business travellers will find collaborations with Dubai-based independent DJs and record collectors, who spin curated alternative tunes from the rare records to well-known classics.
