McGettigan's JLT

Love a pint of the black stuff? How about a five-hour Friday brunch? Live comedy more your scene? Or how about watching the match on the telly?

Whatever you’re looking for – so long as it’s not a quiet candlelit dinner – you’ll find it at popular Irish chain McGettigan’s.

The JLT branch is probably the most popular of the four in the city – and it’s always packed. Inside can get super-smoky, which is why the terrace is a top option in winter months. It was revamped last year and now boasts a cool outdoor bar with a stained glass canopy – which makes it look like a cross between a Tiffany-style lamp and a circus tent – and plenty of space for high and low tables.

And if you’re looking for a deal you’re in the right place. There’s a decent ladies’ night every Monday where you’ll get three free drinks plus a special discounted food menu, a Tuesday quiz night, a popular after-brunch party as well as a happy hour from noon until 8pm, Sunday through Thursday where you’ll get 40 percent off drinks.

Food is decent too, while the vibe is laid-back and friendly.

McGettigan’s is a huge name here in Dubai, and with good reason, it’s an absolute craic-er.
