Eat and drink at Ix-Xatt at one80. Bar Snacks, Music and Proper Cocktails.
Ix-Xatt at one80 just raised the bar when it comes to going out to eat and drink in Gozo.
The hospitality team at One80 Bar and Kitchen know exactly what they are doing. Diversifying their dossier, founders Rouvin and Jesmond have created a bar concept based on their customers’ needs and added Ix-Xatt at one80 to their powerful and passionate hospitality portfolio.
Ix Xatt, which actually means, ‘the shore’ in English sits comfortably adjacent to the one80 restaurant therefore, it benefits from ample outside space overlooking the same knockout view of Mgarr Harbour. This bar is perfect for those that don’t want to do lunch or dinner, but instead, graze on sushi and high-end snacks whilst sampling real mixology.
The Bar – Sitting On The Dock Of A Bay
This raw inner-city New York loft-style interior has exposed beams and pipes, polished concrete floors, bare brick walls, along with black steel industrial features and neon signs and the pièce de résistance? An iconic Marshall jukebox.
Ix Xatt serves bar snacks that are fun and creative. Choose from snacks from the oven and larder, crudi, fritti, pan-fried and grilled or sample small plates from one80s main menu.
The Cocktails – Palate-Popping Pleasure
The skilled bar staff are now some of the island’s best-trained cocktail experts and have raised the bar (pardon the pun) when it comes to cocktail culture. Expect consistently excellent service with a smile, and colour-popping, deliciousness in every sip.
Top: The Single Lady; Beefeater Pink Gin, peach and lemongrass puree, fresh lime juice, strawberry liquor and foam.
Left to right: Smoked Boulvardier; Campari, Rye Whiskey, Cinzano 1757, Vermouth di Torino rosso, smoke. Tokio Sour; Japanese style infused gin, Yuzu syrup, Sake, aromatic bitters, egg white. What A Wonderful World; Brandy, cloudy apple juice, cinnaman and mint syrup, New Orleans bitters, smoke.
No Meat? No Booze? No Problem!
There are some outstanding vegan and veggie choices on the Ix-Xatt menu. Try the Gyoza served with a tomato and soya bean chutney – it was a hit for our young guest. Wash it down with a soft cocktail. Try the Latina Vibe; prickly pear granita, maracuja juice, pineapple juice and agave nectar.
The Music – And The Beat Goes On
Weekends are obviously busiest at Ix Xatt at oone80. From Friday through to Sunday they have a lineup of live DJs playing House, Deep House and Soulful House to keep those high vibes consistent. On Fridays expect a deeper sound, Saturdays they keep it clubby and on Sundays, a nice mid-tempo is kept for long lazy days in the sun.
And when the DJs aren’t there, take your pick from the jukebox. There’s a superb selection of tracks across numerous genres for you to choose from, so whatever the mood, they deliver.
This authentic Marshall Jukebox is the bomb! You just don’t see these babies anymore!
