DUBAI – A group of about a dozen people had already crowded a table in Distillery when the Expat Media team arrived on a Wednesday night.
It’s 7pm and things were just heating up in the trendy new after-hours hangout in Souk Al Manzil, Downtown Dubai.
The vibe in Distillery is very relaxed, no wonder it resonates with Dubai’s creatives with its industrial-style interiors. A statement wall next to the entrance is artfully decorated with rows of crates filled with empty bottles (in case you forget you are in Distillery). We also loved the modern black and white graffiti art on the walls.
The minimalist interiors definitely put the focus on the food and drinks. Service was well paced. We didn’t need to wait long, but we didn’t feel rushed either as the waiter took our orders or served our food.
Speaking of food, bites here are big on taste and prices aren’t ridiculously expensive either. We loved the sweet-spicy barbecued chicken wings, wagyu beef tartare and that oddly satisfying contradiction called pecan maple bacon cheesecake. The drinks were unique, too, and definitely complemented what was on offer in this very Dubai night out. ICA/Expat Media
