Fibber Magee's

From live folk music down to the cheese on toast, a proper Irish pub

Time Out Says

In a city filled with the new, the shiny and the absolutely sprawling, there is, quite simply, nowhere else like Fibber Magee’s.

Established back in the ’90s, Fibbers is a relative oldie on Dubai’s pub scene, but has a snug, weathered authenticity that could belong to a bar at least a hundred years older.

Its tiny size certainly helps, and it doesn’t take many for this place to get packed out – which it frequently does, particularly on Friday nights, but not much less so during the week, when nearby office workers pile in for a pint and a plate of cheese on toast (it’s that Irish).

Yes, there’s a local pub feel, an army of regulars and some brilliant deals from morning until midnight throughout the week, but one of Fibber’s greatest attractions is the Irish folk music jam, held roughly every first Saturday of the month.

On these days, between 2.30pm and 6.30pm, pair your pub lunch with brilliant live entertainment from fiddlers, flautists and more, for a truly transporting afternoon. There really is nothing else quite like it in town.

The bottom line
A must-try.
