A precursor to yet another new trend in Dubai, Dusit Thani Dubai introduces NoLo, the first non-alcoholic bar in Dubai. NoLo has all the goodness of inventive concoctions, the views, the flair and everything that’s good for you.

Music, city views, conversation and the sound of glasses clinking are all part of NoLo’s atmosphere. As the social hour begins, with that comes the flow of drinks. NoLo offers the same experience with one big exception -- the glasses are not filled with alcohol but with well-mixed and inventive craft 0% cocktail.

Though it might be a dry bar, NoLo has the vibes and mixers that will have you dancing the night away, in the healthiest way.

NoLo is a portmanteau word, a blend of two or more words, or parts of words that expresses some combination of the meaning of its parts. No in NoLo stands for no alcohol, while Lo stands for Low Worries. Lo also allows for different interpretations including but not limited to: Love for self, Loyal to wellness, Low risks, Lost and now found. The list goes on.

The name is not all that’s cool. The warm lighting, colourful velvet seats, chandeliers that sparkle away with jazz and soul music that complements the interior setting perfectly, NoLo is where you lose track of the night while taking in the beautiful sights and the views of the city.

What you’re thinking about: THE CONCOCTIONS

The cocktails here serve a higher purpose. In partnership with Lyre’s, the world’s leading independent non-alcoholic spirits brand, NoLo showcases delicious alternatives to alcoholic drinks that are better for the young and adventurous, old and wise. This new drinking den boasts of fresh cocktails created for health-conscious individuals and mindful drinkers.

Without giving too much away, here are the ones you can’t miss: Lavender Bees Knees Royale, Smoked Honeycomb Old Fashion, Sicilian Spritz, Spice Date Espresso Martini, Thai Basil Smash - and many many more.

NoLo chooses to bid goodbye to hangovers and blurry memories. They’re all about that better-for-you lifestyle and fewer social consequences.
