Time Out Says
That is until 6pm every evening, when the peace and quiet is drowned out by the pumping sounds of Fusion Club at the back of the lobby. It’s quite the contrast.
Fusion Club is a brand-new no-frills, let-your-hair-down bar that offers an almost impossible range of deals.
On Wednesdays, it’s Cost Price Night, which means you’ll be drinking short beverages for Dhs7 and hops for Dhs12, which is cracking value however you look at it, and some of the cheapest we’ve seen in the city.
And there’s all the more reason to head there for women. Ladies get three free drinks every night – and unlimited mixed beverages on Tuesdays.
And there are deals throughout the week. On Monday customers can get a pitcher of hops for Dhs70, while on Sunday selected house beverages are just Dhs15. Visit on a Saturday and you’ll get Mexican short beverages for Dhs10.
But bafflingly, the rock-bottom prices don’t seem to be attracting too many customers.
During our visit on a weekday evening, there is only a handful of people in the club, chilling out and having a quiet drink.
And despite the live music and cheery service, it’s not quite enough to make an atmosphere. Admittedly, Cassells Al Barsha is unlikely to rival Dubai Marina or Business Bay as the city’s next nightlife hotspot, and the bar is pretty hidden away, so we didn’t expect it to be heaving, but it’s a shame.
Interiors are all very ’80s, with high bar stools, basic tables, blue lighting and shiny materials on the walls, and it feels a bit like a student club.
But with prices like these, who can complain? Don’t expect a lively night out, but for affordable drinks you’d do worse. A no-frills, bargain night out in Al Barsha.
