Calling all tastemakers, night owls and everyone in between, there’s a new late-night hangout in town, and it’s pulling off a double act of sorts.

Distillery, a new “speakeasy hipster” venue, has officially opened its doors, and it’s bringing together gastropub grub and late-night bar vibes in one destination.

Set in Souk Al Manzil, in Manzil Downtown Dubai, the new hipster hangout spot serves up a list of gastropub dishes from Wagyu beef tartare to cured beetroot salmon from South African executive chef Duayne de Waal.

The menu has a focus on all things meat, from slow short ribs and peri-peri meatballs to premium secondary cuts.

The bar creates signature mixed drinks, while it also boasts an impressive list of grape and hops.

Guests can also expect weekly deals, including post-work happy hours, ladies’ nights and “endless” weekend brunches. Be sure to check back here for further updates.

“Distillery’s doors are open to everyone. It’s a community space that encourages debate and discussion. We want to be where Dubai’s next social trend is conceived," said CEO & co-founder of Lincoln Hospitality, Ralph Homer.

“We want to be where a game-changing idea was sparked. Distillery is where you can catch up with your friends, sink your teeth into a meaty conversation, and feel right at home”.
