Time Out Says

At more than 20 years old Barasti, is one beach bar that’s never going out of fashion. So while it might be ageing in years, it’s never getting old in terms of popularity with its army of fans here in Dubai.

The reason for its popularity is multi-faceted. The massive, sprawling beach bar and club provides whatever you’re looking for – be it lazing in the sun, watching the game, tucking into some decent bar food or partying to top name DJs. It covers all bases, and it covers them well.

Not only did it take home the gong for Best Beach Bar at the 2018 Music & Nightlife Awards, it also claimed Highly Commended in both Sports Bar and Beach Club categories, too.

On the top deck, you’ll find the club’s famous gigantic telly, always showing the day’s choice match or event – and the bar has a particular penchant for footie and a spot of rugger during the major tournaments.

Its huge, central tiki hut-esque bar is also surrounded by smaller screens and inside, you’ll find yet more screens, making this a dream of a sports bar on Saturday and Sunday.

On the lower deck, another bar and recently opened swimming pool make this a chilled-out spot for beachgoers throughout the week, and the mass of sand adds to the relaxed vibe.

But Barasti is also capable of throwing a pumping party, and does so with brilliant regularity. International DJs head into town regularly and thousands of beach-going party people can dance the night away barefoot on the sand.

It’s one of the city’s most famous spots for a reason.

The bottom line
Longstanding nightspot that’s as good as ever.
