If you’re after a drink with Dubai Marina views, then you’re not short of options. However, if you’re looking specifically for juniper-based drinks, there’s really only one place to head, and that’s Ginter.
The bar has a huge menu of drinks, with juniper hailing from Scotland to London, Oregon to California. There’s also a large choice of mixed drinks. They come at a cost though – ranging from Dhs60 to Dhs100.
It’s therefore sage to visit during “The No Rush Hour”, which runs from 5pm until 1am on a weekday and offers 50 perfect off selected drinks.
Bar bites are tasty enough but also on the pricey side (Dhs65 for sliders), so things can rapidly add up if you get peckish and carried away.
Drinks are expertly made and the location is top. That being said, it’s not the slickest of bars. The terrace is nice enough in cooler months, and offers great views, but the service is slow, the furnishings are a little tired and the outdoor space is narrow and lacks vibe.
Inside the windows are big and the décor is vibrant, but it’s all rather clinical, all with a sort of airport lounge-type feel to it.
For juniper drinks, Ginter’s worth a visit, but for a bar experience with Marina views there are still better in the area.
The bottom line Excellent menu, but visit at hapy hour.
