SUSTAINABILITY AT HEART
KITCHEN, TERRACE, BAR & CELLAR
The team behind BOCA has put together a menu reflective of both Spain’s rich culinary heritage as well as its progressive and continually evolving present. To this end, the menu combines elements of fresh, market-selected vegetables, seafood and seasonal produce from local producers and responsible ones further afield. See our latest menu here.
In addition to relaxed indoor and outdoor seating areas, BOCA also hosts a rustic wine cellar boasting an exciting, ever-changing collection hailing from Old World producers with a heavy focus on Spain, but also from closer areas such as Syria, Palestine, and Lebanon. Find out more about our wine menu here.
BOCAs award-winning in-house mixologists have been working feverishly to conjure up a cocktail list that will not just rank amongst Dubai’s most temptingly exotic but also reflects their obsession with reducing waste in the bar. When combined with the pulsating beats rendered by Dubai’s renowned local DJs, BOCA’s wine and cocktail list work to create a buzz like no other. Click to check out our latest cocktail menu.
BOCA’s walls and part of the ceiling are dedicated to the art. This season, BOCA & Fann-À-Porter present the work of Azaïdé titled “Couture Divas”. This exhibition showcases vibrant and expressive pieces that celebrate independent and strong women in diverse settings. The collection highlights the heritage of various patterns, seamlessly blending vintage and modern codes into authentic traditional wear. Azaïdé is a multi-faceted artist with French, Algerian, and Spanish heritage, raised in Madagascar, and has been calling Dubai her home for the past eight years.
So whether you are in for a quick lunch, a drink after work to catch up with friends or colleagues, or in town for a relaxed dinner, BOCA has something for you.
