There are weekly themed events and Japanese-Peruvian cuisine…

When you think of cool botanical bars in DIFC, Flair 5 always springs to mind. Oversized potted plants line the large open-air bar that’s split into separate, slightly elevated lounging alcoves and it serves up some fabulous cocktails. After a summer hiatus, Flair 5 is back and in business.

Not only is it reopen but it’s back with weekly themed events and picture-perfect Japanese-Peruvian cuisine. If you love to work your way through a menu of expertly-crafted cocktails, this is your place. There’s a huge selection on offer and they’re as pretty as they are tasty.

On the food menu you’ll find dishes such as grilled octopus with peppers, olives, tomatoes and garlic cream, burrata with tomatillo salsa and pine nuts, prawn croquettes with espelette mayo, wagyu tartare with jalapeno, capers, shallots and pimiento mayo, crispy tacos, fresh sushi and maki rolls.
