Antonio De Luca has been appointed as the new Bar Manager at Off the Wall, Hotel Indigo Dubai Downtown. The slick cocktail bar inspired by the culture clash of nearby Satwa offers guest relaxed vibes to slick contemporary cocktails and the best remixes of flavours old and new. His role is to conceptualise the drinks menu and oversee all operations at the venue. Originally from Italy, his career as a mixologist has seen him travel across the globe as a bartender and gain a wealth of knowledge that he will be bringing to the property.
Antonio’s passion for mixology was sparked at an early age by his fascination with the combination of flavours in spirits and their massive potential to amplify the guest experience. This same passion led him to pursue his professional career by enrolling in mixology, cocktail, art and design courses at Planet One. He then went on to continue his education and in 2016 obtained his diploma in bartending from the International Bartender School in Rome. To elevate his expertise even further, Antonio acquired a master’s degree in Hospitality from the Flair Bartender School and another one in Bar Mastery from the Campari Academy.
“I’m thrilled to head the team here at Off the Wall and this new role promises an exciting journey for me in Dubai. I look forward to bringing my new ideas and learning along the way from the style and concepts of the city,” said Antonio De Luca, Bar Manager of Off the Wall.
