We’re not sure there was ever actually a guy called Freddy from which this bar took its name. But if there was such a man, he’s a guy we’d like to meet. From what we can tell, Fictional Freddy would be American (this bar has a US roadhouse-like feel), a sports fan (there’s paraphernalia and TV screens everywhere), and a generous soul (drinks are rather reasonably priced). Other things we’ve observed Freddy to be fond of include pool, darts and table football. We reckon he’s also got a pretty musical ear, with an incredibly well-stocked digital jukebox, and even a private karaoke booth. In Dubai’s ongoing bigger-taller-shinier nightlife race, Freddy’s is a breath of fresh air, a genuine Old Dubai nightspot with its charm kept well intact.
