Factory People, a Beirut-based group of artists and music enthusiasts, have announced the arrival of “Soul Kitchen” in Dubai. A restaurant-bar “designed to feed the soul,” Soul Kitchen is an oasis offering a unique food and drinks menu that fuses Levantine and Latin American flavors; it is a space to discover the best in regional alternative culture, art and talent.
Located in the heart of the city (Business Bay), Soul Kitchen is an intimate venue that offers premium dining, world-class drinks, an interactive beverage bar and a breezy terrace. It will feature stellar alternative musical programming and tap into a wide range of artist residencies, all curated by Factory People.
Behind the culinary experience is the story of the Arab diaspora in Latin America. The menu highlights the exchange between these both cultures. Guests can expect an array of dishes modeled around the social dining traditions inherent to these regions, all part of an open-ended adventure for the senses, paired with passionately crafted drinks.
“Soul Kitchen” is a project by Factory People, one of the most influential experiential groups in the MENA region, who have created incomparable experiences that stand the test of time. They run the iconic mega clubs “The Grand Factory” and “AHM” in Beirut, in addition to other restaurants and beach clubs.
With 20 brands and 17 venues in their portfolio, Factory People operate in three countries, namely Lebanon, Egypt and the UAE, and maintain strategic global partnerships in the UK, France and Spain.
Soul Kitchen is the first of an upcoming multi-room experience set to disrupt the culinary and music landscape in Dubai. “Factory People are thrilled to grow the scene by bringing their innovative concepts to the local community in the UAE,” a statement said.
