An alternative to the DIFC's more formal venues, Indie hails from Beirut and offers a more casual and unpretentious setting. Just across from Zuma and tucked above Gaucho restaurant, this hidden lounge ticks a few boxes; with a popular music policy, tempting international menu and good craft cocktails, if you catch the right bartender. If not, don't fear, stick to the menu where you'll find an interesting selection of saki cocktails created behind their cosy saki bar.

CP Tip: Try the Gambas Ceviche and Rossini JR— good for a nibble while you lap up the tunes and what's next on the cocktail list.
