New nightspot Indie, a concept by AddMind, is set to open on Thursday this week in Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
The kitchen and lounge is a standalone speakeasy, which sets out to offer an alternative experience to neighbouring venues.
AddMind CEO Tony Habre said: “We don’t like to put people and nightlife in neat little boxes. We merely recognise a need in the market and aim to fill the gap.
“Indie is straightforwardly good food and drinks, non-mainstream music, a comfy and unfussy place you can just hang out in – something Dubai’s nightlife has missed.”
The décor of the venue merges contemporary with vintage, blending different eras together with its wall coverings and furniture.
A wide range of music will feature, including live performances from DJs bands, singers and percussionists.
Mixology will also be a central focus, with a sake bar, cocktail bar and fresh fruit bar, while the food menu will comprise a wide selection of tapas and bar snacks.
Indie will be open daily, from 5pm to 2am, with band nights every Wednesday and Indie’s after work offer from 5pm to 6:30pm daily.
