My hotel brand of choice globally is the Holiday Inn brand. Based on comfort standards and excellent facilities.More importantly excellent value for money & Dubai is no exception. Their bars are consistently staffed by some of the friendliest ,warmest people & a credit to their recruitment process and the atmosphere and character of a great bar.
Q Bar excels in personable staff and attentive with prompt attention. Your drinks are always served with a generous portion of bar snacks. The bar is an island with high stools and if your a sports fan there are plenty of screens to watch your favourite sports. Just ask the staff & they will ensure you don't miss your favourite sports event as they have plenty of screens.The atmosphere of the bar is warm and friendly & a relaxing "homely" feel. A convenient location & an easy going spacious place for business or pleasure. There is additional comfortable soft seating away from the bar area & there are non smoking areas.
If your relaxing the" Happy Hour "timings are certainly worth noting between 6-9pm & worth visiting for their prices alone together with some great live music delivering well known classics . The evening atmosphere brings both visitors and residents alike & a great place to meet or make new friends.
What I like about Q Bar is its easy location, easy going atmosphere , great attentive staff, value for money & one of the social meeting points in Dubai. Cheers!

James must either work for IHG or has never set foot in the place.
This has got to be one of the worst bars in Dubai.
Firstly, the decor. One side is decorated in black ash chipboard style (circa 1989) with various circular mirrors attached, like something out of a X Files inspired bedroom theme, whilst the schizophrenic half brother opted for a theme straight out of a train station waiting room. The train station side has a weird, wood chip themed wallpaper and random black faux leather seating (again some 1980s throwbacks here). I have honestly never seen anything like it.
To complete this extremely weird ambience, they have opted for a job lot of bar stools from IKEA, which, whilst being easy on the wallet, screetch and scream in an ear wrenching symphony every time a customer dares move an inch, thus destroying any last remnants of relaxation.
Moving on, the music was barely audiable (probably a blessing, since their retro kitsch fixation would have no doubt rendered a soundtrack of Abba and Brother Beyond), the service was atrocious (hint, listen to the customer, don't talk over them) and finally, the drinks were served in the wrong types of glasses. Why? "Because that's the Manager's decision".
A disgrace to Dubai.
