Oskar Kinberg at Oskar’s Bar at Dabbous
Whether using new ingredients in fresh and unconventional ways, or adding a little Oskar Kinberg flavoured oomph to the classics, Kinberg prides himself on getting the cocktails on his menu just-so. “I started in nightclubs surrounded by really cool people; the geekiness came later,” he says with a smile.
That geekiness comes through in the taste of the drinks, not in the mood of the place itself – “we’re definitely a good times kind of place, we just take our drinks seriously,” he continues. For proof, check out the Daiquiri they’ll be serving on National Daiquiri Day and beyond but if you want them to mix things up a bit, just ask. Kinberg is always happy to bring a twist to the party.
