In Dubai there are many bars but not that many pubs - this is definitely a pub. It was quiz night and live music when we went on Monday - was supposed to be Ladies night but they changed it to get in with Marina Ladies night on a Tuesday, which is crazy as everyone will be at Pier 7,... More

I don't really plan to come here, but since my friends live within walking distance of this place, we somehow always end up here for a drink or two. They have interesting offers going on all the time. The band is also good. The food is nothing to rave about to be honest...

Live music, beer and fast food. What is not to like. Ok the food is not that good but the beer flows and the bands are ok. It is what you make of it. Had many a late night and head hurt next day.

Went there last week, for a dinner with friends. Music was so loud (and I like music especially live bands) we had to scream into each others ears to talk. There was no chance of a group conversation. We gave up , went elsewhere, and then onto a nightclub (also with live band). The nightclub was quieter ! Will be... More

It is one of best pubs in Dubai where one can relax and enjoy a great variety of drinks, or chat up with strangers and share a tale or two.

Terribly smokey and poor atmosphere, really rude and poor Russian servicer that have no manners or customer care . Ask any request to be met with resentment and rudeness. End of story, I'd stay away as a expat with standards.

Great place, reasonably priced... One of the best English bands in town. Friendly service and management. They have great activities from karaoke night, quiz night to ladies night... Cool bar anytime of the day!

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
