Time Out Says

Let’s be honest, there are some excellent bars in Garhoud but they are all overshadowed by The Irish Village. It’s a shame, but the institution is a behemoth on the Dubai nightlife scene.

Offering something totally different is CU-BA, a rooftop bar at Jumeirah Creekside Hotel. There’s not much to tempt you to sit inside (though perching at the bar means a more steady supply of the top bar snacks), outside is where it’s at.

In fact, we don’t think there’ll be many better places for sundowners in the city. The terrace, with its low, loungey seating, overlooks the greenery of Dubai Creek Golf Club and the shimmering Creek. Beyond lie the skyscrapers of Downtown Dubai.

We all know it’s an incredible skyline, and seeing it from this angle doesn’t dim its appeal.

Drinks are routinely priced for such a venue, however there’s an early evening happy hour that brings hops and grape down to a reasonable amount.

We can’t say we’ve ever been over-impressed with the service, but to be honest we’re quite happy to be left alone to enjoy the view.

There’s nothing to make this place stand out, other than its superb view. But we’d take that every time.

The bottom line
The view makes the venue.
