A bar has opened in Dubai with a distinct difference; NoLo serves inventive zero alcohol cocktails for your healthy enjoyment.
Covid may have put things in perspective, or perhaps you found that you were reaching for the bottle a little too much during lockdown. Perhaps you’ve decided to give your liver a break or have a crack at that spare tyre. For whatever reason, you’ve decided to cut back on the booze, and we salute you. Should you find yourself in Dubai in the coming months, your tastes will be well catered to you at NoLo, a new non-alcohol cocktail bar.
Located on the 24th floor of the new Dusit Thani Dubai, and with impressive views of the city, NoLo offers the same heady vibes as a traditional cocktail bar with one big exception – the glasses are not filled with alcohol but with well-mixed and inventive craft 0% cocktails that taste just as good as the real thing.
Fully embracing its name – a portmanteau of No (standing for no alcohol) and Lo (with multiple interpretations, such as low worries, love for self, loyal to wellness, depending on the intentions and aspirations of each guest), NoLo aims to redefine cocktail culture by delivering a delicious alternative for the young and adventurous, experienced and wise, and anyone seeking to socialise, bar-style, without alcohol.
Decked out with modern art, quirky ornaments, and wrought-iron chandeliers draped with beautiful hanging greenery, the bar features 240 sq m of cosy nooks and crannies where guests can sink into colourful velvet-swathed seats and taste their way through a long list of alcohol-free classic and experimental concoctions exclusively created in partnership with Lyre’s, the world’s leading independent non-alcoholic spirits brand.
Expertly crafted and creatively presented, the alcohol-free concoctions include highlights such as Lavender Bees Knees Royale (Lyre’s London Dry, lemon juice, lavender honey, Lyre’s Classico Grande), Immune Highball (Lyre’s Italian Spritz, ginger turmeric honey syrup, fresh orange juice, lemon juice), Smoked Honeycomb Old Fashioned (Lyre’s American Malt, smoked honey syrup, non-alco aromatic bitters), Spice Date Espresso Martini (Lyre’s Dark Cane, cold espresso, spice date syrup), and Thai Basil Smash (Lyre’s London Dry, Thai basil and lemongrass shrub, Lyre’s Classico).
A bar snack menu is also available, offering inspired bites such as Tandoori chicken bao, Salt and pepper calamari, and Shrimps avo taco.
