This restaurant, bar and rooftop lounge offers a fully comprehensive night out, but if you just fancy a comfy seat with a few drinks, the Pier 7 spot can offer just that. But you’ll have to pick your night wisely.
Tuesdays mean ladies’ night, and this is when you’ll find the bar is buzzing. Women get three free drinks from 8pm to midnight, while DJ Dane Bowers (of Another Level fame) takes to the decks.
During the week (and on Thursday nights), you’ll be able to find a cosy little nook to settle into with a drink though.
While prices can be on the keen side – watch out for that additional ten percent municipality tax that sneaks its way onto your bill at the end – there’s a good happy hour deal that takes place daily (if you’re ordering grape). From 6pm to 9pm, you’ll get glasses of red or white for Dhs25 each, or a bottle for Dhs125.
A DJ pumps out the tunes, quietly early on so you can still have a chat with your mates, but as evening turns into night, levels pick up. And as the venue gets busier, the vibe gets clubby.
Staff are always on hand to help, though, and service is swift and friendly.
This is a glamorous, classy (if a little quiet) spot for a pre- or post-dinner drink, and overall a cool bar to spend an evening in.
The bottom line Glam spot that’s good for a relaxed drink.
