Love it or hate it, Bar-Nasti (as it is often called, with the greatest of affection) is both Dubai’s most notorious and most loved bar. Watch as grins spread widely across your visitors’ faces as they first set foot on the sand with a drink in hand. It’s a look that says ‘am I on a night out or am I at the beach ... ?’ The glorious answer is both. Enjoy waves gently lapping at your feet as you plunge your hand into an ice bucket and pull out a bottle of hops. (This gleeful look can also be observed regularly at Nasimi in Atlantis The Palm.) Open daily 11am-1am, Barasti, Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach Resort & Marina, Jumeirah, Dubai, (04 399 3333).To see 100 more of our favourite things to do in Dubai, click here.
