Bubbles Bar

A quiet, relaxed and low-key hotel bar in Al Barsha

Time Out Says

If you’re in the Al Barsha area and after a quiet, no-frills bar for those post-work drinks, Bubbles Bar fits the bill.

With low lounge chairs scattered around the large room and plush leather sofas around the edges, there’s plenty of space to sit, especially as there’s only a handful of other people when we visit.

We’re surprised the bar isn’t busier as we arrive during its cracking happy hour. From 5pm until 7pm daily there are half-price mixed drinks, bottled hops and glasses of grape. And considering regular prices start at just Dhs38, this is a top deal.

If you get hungry on your visit Bubbles has a decent nibbles menu, too, ranging from the classic edamame, sweet potato fries and chicken satay through to burgers and sharing platters.

Or, if you fancy seeing some sport then you can watch it on one of three large TVs, all showing different channels.

Bubbles Bar is ticking all the right boxes, but something is missing, mainly the atmoshere.

If you’re staying in Novotel Al Barsha, or the surrounding area, then Bubbles Bar is worth a visit, but we wouldn’t go out of our way for this one.

The bottom line
Decent happy hour for early drinks.
