Off the Wall is a slick cocktail bar inspired by the culture clash nearby Satwa. The flavour of the day here is gritty and urban, with riffs on traditional flavours alongside works by local artists.

Featuring an installation by local artist Max Cramatte – celebrating the quirks and colours of local signage – alongside graffiti art from Paul Bruwer and Syrian artist Baseem Rayyes, its an industrial affair inside, with riffs on expressive local flavours smacked home through house-infused spirits, quality crafting and just the right touch of flair.
