Bouncer at the door would not let my friend into the bar because he was wearing a turban. He told my friend the he'd have to take it off if he wishes to enter.
We then called the bar manager (hoping for sensibility to prevail), but he too didn't seem to care.
It all seemed quite contradictory to what they state on their website "traditional Irish hospitality... friendly atmosphere... welcoming staff...".
If someone from Fibber's actually reads these reviews, I would really welcome the opportunity to discuss this w/ them further.

A rare thing in DXB - an almost authentic dive bar. Not quite up to NYC standards, but not bad. Decent grub, decor in need of an update, Declan the guitat player/singer in need of an update (typical over cranked fuzzy guitar, 2 or 3 chord stuff) but the total lack of pretense in a bar in DXB brings this joint to the top of my list for authentic decent places for a pint. No compensated daters here either which is refreshing, although the place is a bit of a sausage factory.

Simply authentic and has character, no fake people and plastic girls.

Food is first class. The bar is not a posing palace but to be honest the its the people and the craic you are wanting, music nights are fantastic and the quiz night is a good one.
