The vibrant venue will replace Iris on the rooftop of the Oberoi Hotel…

It’s only been a few weeks since popular rooftop bar, Iris Dubai, relocated to Meydan and now we can reveal the exciting new concept which will replace it. La Mezcaleria, a pan-Latin restaurant and lounge will fill the space on the 27th floor of the Oberoi in Business Bay.

Due to open in December 2019, La Mezcaleria will offer a fusion of Latin American flavours set to a vibrant backdrop of ‘uninterrupted panoramic view of Dubai’s breathtaking skyline and the spectacular Burj Khalifa’.

Brought to you by the team behind Iris, White and Matto, La Mezcaleria already has a popular outlet in Beirut. If the Dubai version is anything like the original, guests can expect a vibrant industrial space with Latin inspired artwork. Plus, coupled with those brilliant Burj Khalifa views, it’s set to become a top Business Bay hotspot for drinking and dining.

The Mexican-inspired menu will offer a selection of sharing-style dishes including a variety of mains, tacos and quesadillas. The Beirut outlet also offers ‘unique tequilas and Mezcal cocktails’ so we can expect to find some creative concoctions when the Dubai branch launches too.

Carlos Santos, General Manager of La Mezcaleria, said: “We are truly delighted to introduce an innovative concept that explores the depths of Pan-Latin cuisine and offers a dynamic experience for Dubai’s cosmopolitan residents. Our vision is to create an energetic ambience with palatable food and magnificent views.”
