Inspired by the wonders of the galaxy, the new beverage menu showcases 12 beverages – each an ode to a celestial being or constellation.
The highly anticipated launch of Galaxy Bar’s new beverage menu follows hot on the heels of the team’s win at the World’s 50 Best Bars Awards, where they received the Campari One to Watch Award 2020 – a first for a venue in the Middle East.
The intimate DIFC venue offers a ceiling filled with stars that cast an ethereal glow over the venue and represent the Athenian night sky. Stepping through the velvet curtain at the entrance to Galaxy Bar, guests are greeted with sumptuous interiors, where the sculpted bar and terrazzo floor allude to the ancient Parthenon.
The Galaxy team aim to take guests on an unforgettable journey with the new selection of hand-crafted beverages. Krystian Hordejuk, Group Beverage Manager of Tashas Group, commented, “The Galaxy Bar New Signature Cocktails menu, is a journey through the celestial sphere and the night skies of Greece that have inspired the glittering stars of our interior. We have spent over a year perfecting each of the 12 cocktails, all of which have been conceptualised with truly unique flavour combinations. The cocktail names refer to the constellations described in Greek mythology. We are thrilled to launch this collection of drinks that are very close to our hearts.”
Highlight serves include the Titan of the Sun featuring Mountain Tea Bitters and Torres Moscato Soda representing “the radiant crown of the solar system.” Also of note is the Mysteries of the Universe featuring roasted pineapple juice, lemon juice, Sichuan Agave Syrup and Angostura Bitters in “a mysterious, magical blend that transforms earthiness to pure gold.” Finally, the Centaurus contains Angostura bitters and Melba toast in an ode to a creature that is half-human, half-horse and also a constellation in the southern sky.
Galaxy Bar Dubai will be commissioning a limited-edition recipe book to showcase the 12 stunning cocktails to celebrate the launch of the menu. The luxurious leather-bound gold book, features embossed pages, delicately adorned with gold leaf. There will be only 36 copies of the book printed – representing the 36 months of Galaxy Bar’s existence – to be gifted to an exclusive list of VIP and regular guests.
The Galaxy Bar Signature Cocktail menu launches on Tuesday, 3 August 2021.
