When it comes to views, few bars can compete with Bahri Bar. The Madinat venue overlooks the resort’s canals, and patrons can gaze at the nearby Burj Al Arab. The setting inside’s not bad either, but alas, the music (think obscure ’80s hits) does little to inspire. Still, there are usually a few slinkily-dressed ladies who find the tunes pleasant enough for a quick bop.

The crowd is mainly made up of tourists, ladies in the mood for a raucous night out and a few fellas on the prowl. The decor – all Arabic finishings – is actually rather elegant and balances out the sad tunes rather nicely.

The drinks are creative, which we like, especially the cocktail concoction made with espresso – though upon imbibing we were up until the early hours. However, the price of the drinks is a bit difficult to justify, and at Dhs50 a pop per cocktail, it’s likely you won’t want to hang out for too long. It makes more sense to stay for just a drink or two. Another sour note is the service, which is certainly lacklustre. While of course we sympathise with the barmen at this busy haunt, they seem to take their time even when no one’s clamouring for a drink.

I used to go to Bahri bar all the time during my time in Dubai; fantastic live music, great selection of alcohol and some of the best views of Burj al Arab at night. I still dream of this place......

Beautiful views of the Burj Al Arab and Madinate Jumeirah canal - outside seating in winter is a joy!
