Tried to visit here for food and a beer early weekday evening. At the security check the extremely rude and surly guy on the door spotted an apple in my bag. Would not allow me in with the apple - instructed me to either eat it or throw it in the trash. A recent reviewer has also commented on the... More

Staff is inattentive, but given the space and number of people they need to cover it's almost understandable. The recent face lift they've given the place works nicely, particularly the massive screen outdoor. The plethora of inebriated bodies making their way through shisha pipes to the sounds of 90s pop music while the soccer is broadcasted makes this place a... More

No charge to get in, chilled during the day. Food is good. Prices fine. and at night you can have the best Parties (super laid back- away from posh and snobby)

Barasti is one of the Dubai classic. The setting of the place is amazing and can please pretty much anyone (sports bar, beach bar, live music bar...every corner has a different ambiance). Drinks and foods are expensive but what to expect in Dubai... I still do not get their Happy Hour concept: 29dibs for a bottle of beer, 45dibs for... More

Went for the smirnoff sound collective edm concert on a Friday. It was a fun packed night, event was nicely organised, great crowd, so much activities, bars were set up everywhere so no need for unnecessary queues, so many give aways, great music on two different stages plus a live karaoke performance. Had a trully great time!

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.
