This DIFC bar feels urban, contemporary and cool with graffiti-style pictures scrawled artistically on the walls, mirrored ceilings, glass everywhere and bright red seats part of the striking décor.
Inside is huge, dark and loud, thanks to the funky beats provided by the DJ. There’s also an outdoor terrace that the crowd can spill on to in winter, with enough space for a bit of a boogie should the mood (and music) take you.
There are themed nights throughout the week, such as retro Fridays and ladies’ night on Tuesdays, and it’s at these that the bar really comes to life.
Dusty’s isn’t somewhere to head to for a quiet after-work drink, but if that’s what you fancy here, it’s better to visit earlier in the evening.
There’s a decent happy hour Sunday to Thursday from 5pm to 8pm, when you’ll get draughts for Dhs36, grape for Dhs33 and mixed drinks for Dhs45. There’s also a menu of very good bar bites to keep you going, with wagyu sliders being a highlight.
You’re not short of nightlife options in DIFC and Dusty’s is a good place to finish up. Let your hair down and get into the groove. You might even make it your regular.
The bottom line
Groove at this cool DIFC nightspot.
