Gaucho and Add-Mind have partnered to launch a new lounge concept, Indie at Gaucho. A brand that originated in Beirut, Indie is located above the Argentinian restaurant and set to open its doors in the third quarter of 2015.

This strategic partnership aims to combine Gaucho’s expertise in the restaurant industry with Add-Mind’s strength of building some of the popular nightlife names in the region.

“We are truly excited for this partnership that aims to bring out the best of the two parties’ practices and put them together in a unique brand that’s never been seen or experienced before in Dubai,” said Gaucho director of international operations Ross Butler.
