COYA Dubai pulls out all the stops to host its final party of the season, flying in World 50 Best Greek bar Barro Negro Athens to create bespoke cocktails, complete with resident D.J.s and live entertainment
Every music and cocktail lover in the UAE are invited to clear their calendars on Monday, July 18, and head to COYA Dubai for the final party of the season.
Welcoming socialites, beverage connoisseurs, and party-goers to come together for one last drink before the legendary venue temporarily closes to undergo some renovations for the summer. The unmissable event is hosted in collaboration with Barro Negro Athens, the cutting-edge Greek nightspot featured in the prestigious World’s 50 Best Bar List 2021.
Presenting a flawless fusion of unique and delicious artisan concoctions, uplifting beats from two of COYA Dubai’s most talented D.J.s, and awe-inspiring live entertainment, the sizzling party is just the perfect way of saying goodbye to the Peruvian venue until it reopens in spectacular style in September.
For the past eight years, COYA Dubai has treated guests to tempting authentic Latin American bites, legendary Pisco sour mixes, and sensational parties. Now, after being recognized as the 13th best restaurant in the region in the much-anticipated MENA 50 Best Restaurants 2022 list, the iconic venue has decided that it’s time to mix things up, make a few changes, and pause before coming back bigger and bolder than ever in just a few months.
Marking the momentous occasion with a night of memorable moments, Barro Negro Athens has created a bespoke menu of innovative and creative mixes just for COYA Dubai’s final party of the season. Highlighting COYA’s mixology excellence and introducing guests to new and exciting experiences, Stelios Papadopoulos has traveled from Greece to the UAE to make a one-night-only appearance and prepare some of his most creative and outstanding cocktails to live and in person.
Nominated as the first non-Mexican Tequila Expert in the World by the National Chamber of Tequila Industry, Stelios is also a certified “Tequila Expert & Expert Master Catador,” as recognized by the Academia Mexicana del Tequila, A.C.
A global ambassador for PROXIMO tequila, including the iconic 1800 Tequila, Stilos excels in creating delicious cocktails that highlight the aromatic flavors of authentic Mexican Tequila and mezcal. Named after the year 1800, when the World’s first and real premium tequila was born, 1800, Tequila has maintained its same legendary formula and distillation process for over 200 years, ensuring that it always delivers the same smooth, rich and delectable quality beverage every time. Packed in distinctive trapezoidal-shaped bottles inspired by Mexico’s ancient Mayan stone pyramids, the brand is built on the motto “Trabajo, Passion, Honestidad,” or ‘Work, Passion, and Honesty.”
After spending two years traveling across Mexico learning about agave and Tequila, including attending the prestigious Agave Festival in Texas, USA, Stelios is on a mission to introduce the UAE to the magical world of agave spirits. Presenting a fusion of vibrant contemporary cocktails and traditional recipes, every concoction on his exclusive COYA Dubai menu oozes style and class.
Meanwhile, as one of the most iconic haunts in Athens, Barro Negro is famed for its deep knowledge and understanding of Mexican beverages. Dedicated to honoring the cheerful colors, flavors, and vibes of Mexico and boasting a lively concept that perfectly complements the mixology expertise of COYA’s DNA, Barro Negro is the ideal special guest for COYA Dubai’s final party of the season.
Adding further excitement and encouraging guests to let their hair down and dance until closing time, the elegant evening will also feature tribal and deep house tunes mixed by resident DJs Victor and Besh, enrapturing beats from resident drummer Aleksandar, and COYA Dubai’s signature à la carte menu of premium Peruvian nibbles.
Donato Barberio, General Manager of COYA Dubai, said: “This summer is a hugely exciting time for the COYA brand, and so we decided to celebrate by hosting one last lavish party. I’m thrilled to welcome Stelio from Barro Negro to join in the fun with us, and I can’t wait to see all our guests there on July 18 as we honor this excellent landmark for COYA Dubai.
“We might be taking a break from entertaining guests for a little while, but we will be back before you know it with countless new and one-of-a-kind experiences that I’m sure all our guests will love. I can’t wait to reveal more details when the time is right.”
COYA Dubai’s final season party will take place on Monday, July 18, presented in collaboration with Barro Negro and priced à la carte with no minimum spend. COYA Dubai will close temporarily from July 20 to September 2022.
