Time Out Says

From the tartan upholstery to the extensive variety of malt beverages, via dangling decorations assembled from antlers, Copper Dog feels pulled straight from the Highlands.

But since opening opposite JBR last year, this Scottish import (the original in Speyside is well-known for its celebrity guests) has been right at home on Dubai’s pub scene. While still relatively new to the city, it has that elusive lived-in feel that many bars have tried and failed to replicate, right down to the odd creaky floorboard.

It’s at once a perfect place to hide from the summer heat, and a brilliantly cosy spot when Christmas comes around and the tree goes up. And when the finishing touches are finally in place on Ain Dubai and Bluewaters Island in the next couple of years, it’ll have unbeatable views of two of the city’s most anticipated new attractions.

Until then, there’s plenty to steal your gaze inside, including some very traditionally Scottish (and unusual to Dubai) bar bites that we can’t quite get enough of, and not to mention its three different brunch deals available on both Fridays and Saturdays.

A great hideaway in the heart of new Dubai. Haggis ball, anyone?

The bottom line
Scottish pub that’s right at home in Dubai.
