Time Out Says

It’s no secret that we’re big fans of the nightlife scene in Old Dubai. From the Filipino karaoke spots of Deira to the Indian nightclubs of Karama, the venues offer something unmistakably different from some of the identikit bars of the newer end of town.

One thing that Bur Dubai does particularly well is a simple British pub. And Barrels is one of the best examples.

There isn’t much to speak of in terms of décor. The venue is pretty sparse, with primarily wooden seating and, of course, tables made from barrels for those who want to stand. There are a couple of sofas if anyone is desperate for some more comfort, too.

The drinks selection is fairly standard, with the same hops you’ll find in hundreds of others bars in the city, and some grape and mixed drink choices to go alongside them.

If you’re after food, fairly standard British pub grub is available that will certainly fill a rumbling tummy.

If all this sounds remarkably average, we suppose it is. But there’s something comforting in knowing there’s a reliable pub serving the classics and showing the footy. That’s something we value highly.

The bottom line
A no-frills Brit pub that does simple best.
