Our Best Beach Bar has plenty of staying power

Time Out Says

It’s been sat on the shores of Dubai for more than two decades, constantly evolving, constantly looking to bring something different, something special to the city. And Barasti has done and continues to do that exceptionally well.

And one area that it excels in is its post-brunch bash that is usually the destination of choice for Dubai’s party-going masses.

Whether you’re up on the top deck, taking in the view of the dancing, mingling crowds on one side and the Dubai Marina on the other, or if you’re in the thick of it around the central bar, you’re never going to be short of company, beats or drinks.

And in summer the main bar is housed in an air-conditioned tent, making it an excellent all-year-round venue.

It’s also home to some absolutely massive weekend beach festivals, with top DJs from around the world often in town and hitting the decks.

On the lower deck, another bar and pool make this a chilled-out spot for beachgoers when this place is a bit more mellow. You’ll also find plenty of screens (including its famous, central, gigantic one on the middle deck) showing sport throughout the week as well as Premier League football.

But, for pure party nights out at one of the city’s most famous hangouts, it’s still one of the best around.

Longstanding beach bar that covers all areas from live music to sunbathing

For a top night out, especially post-brunch
