Though it has rarely been empty, this intimate bar at the Radisson Blu Dubai Media City has grown its following over the past 12 months. Particularly popular on Thursdays, the regulars, a rowdy mix of media folk, can be found enjoying happy hour and propping up the bar in their numbers until the lights come on.

This has been an absolute favourite for after work drinks for YEARS!
non smoking area on the ground floor, a rowdier top floor for smokers, every sporting event you can think of is broadcast on screens all around, the staff is lovely and the service decent.

The place has survived numerous bars sprouting all around, remains packed on game nights, and i can't think of a better place to watch the F1 in this city!

Are we talking about the same ICON Bar? No darts board. However, you were right about the great staff and great ambiance. Brilliant jukebox.

What a pleasant experience we had at Icon. We went for the Brunch on Friday and it was delicious. A real British food spot and we loved everything on the menu. The variety was small BUT who eats everything at the big brunches anyway? All the taste needs you wanted to satisfy was addressed and how great this was. And the cost - almost for free compared to many other places. Last night we dropped by the watch the cricket - we had some soup and drinks and the service was great - even had a laugh with the staff who supported the opposite side. Very nice - we will definately visit the Icon again and again. Thank you.
