Nasimi Beach

Part bar, part restaurant, part club: Nasimi is a beach bar that does most things well Reviews

Part bar, part restaurant, part club: Nasimi, surprisingly, manages to do most things it attempts pretty darn well. Its beach parties are hugely popular, and during beach renovations it managed to pull off several extremely well-attended and thoroughly enjoyable pool parties. And what better way is there to unwind than sprawled out on a bean bag on the beach with an ice-cold (if rather pricey) drink? Whether it’s for a few tipples with friends at the weekend or a quick one after work, it’s one of the great things about living in Dubai.

Indoors, the atmosphere and aesthetics are just as pleasing, with heaps of space to accommodate the crowds and a drinks menu as interesting and varied as it is vast. Unfortunately, and rather bafflingly given the relatively small number of patrons when we visited, the staff weren’t really ‘with it’. Most were grouped together, chatting casually behind the bar as we waved frantically from one of the tables.

When we finally managed to prise a staff member away from the group, drinks arrived swiftly and we ordered a portion of nachos to quell our raging hunger. Whether they were any good or not remains to be seen – it transpired 30 minutes later that the request never made it to the kitchen. Thankfully, the grape and hop beverages were pleasant enough to keep us refreshed for at least one drink before we decided to throw in the towel, making a note to be well-fed before our next trip.

It's an amazing experience dancing on soft sands, with the amazing Atlantis structure behind you, and the Palm island in front. But the overpriced drinks and terrible service from the staff really detract from the magic of it all. I ordered four Jack Daniels with Coke, and all I got was ice with stale cola, every time, and even then the bartender would refuse to fill the plastic cup to the rim! And when you complain, they just say "that's the way it is." Well if that's the way it is, don't expect any revenue from me or any of my friends. I'll be at Barasti if anyone asks.

There is so much buzz 'bout this spot that I had to go! I have to say I'm disappointed! the service was terrible and people were not friendly.
Barasti is way better!

Nasimi Beach is a wonderfull venue for dancing in the sand and watching the fireworks on new years. It is over priced but still enjoyable, for that one cash-splashing night a month.
