Time Out Says


Koubba Bar is to Al Qasr what Bahri Bar is to Mina A’Salam – a richly decorated nightspot with a vintage, Arabian feel and a great mixed drinks list. Except, it’s just not quite as impressive. It’s an undoubtedly cosy venue, with its plush booths and Arabesque awnings dividing the venue up into small sections, but those velvety, tassel-wearing cushions scream ’60s living room more than majestic old Arabia. Koubba is a good place for a catch up with friends. Staff are eager to help and readily available, but without hovering in your peripheral. Prices aren’t quite what you’d call keen, but you’re in the five-star, landmark Al Qasr hotel – what are you expecting? On weekends there’s a muted buzz throughout the place, which can grow a little louder after the end of brunches taking place on Fridays around the Madinat, but never rises to hectic (unlike Bahri, which gets pretty rowdy post-brunch). If what you’re after is a fairly quiet drink and plenty of privacy, you could do a lot worse than Koubba.
