Neighbourhood

Brit-style pub in Dubai Investments Park with classic grub
  • 1

Time Out Says

Residents of Dubai Investments Park’s Green Community have a new watering hole to frequent in the form of British-style pub Neighbourhood. It replaces the hotel’s old, less imaginatively named venue The Bar.

Neighbourhood doesn’t look like your typical English pub. Inside it’s all modern industrial interiors, with exposed brick walls and retro light fixtures. It’s completely round, with an outside terrace wrapping almost all the way around it, where you can take in views of the lake that sits right in the middle of DIP.

It’s not too busy at the moment, which means it’s easy to get a seat. It should also mean that it’s easy to get served, but this is not quite the case. There are a few teething problems with staff – once we’d ordered our drinks they forgot about us, despite there only being only two other guests in the pub – but once these are ironed out and place picks up a bit, it’ll be a decent spot for drink if you live in the area.

The music selection features lots of British artists, of course, so if you’re looking for somewhere to have a drink and listen to songs by everyone from Muse to David Gray, you’re in luck. You can probably guess what’s on the food menu, too – that’s right, it’s full of British classics, from fish and chips to sticky toffee pudding.

While the traffic has yet to pick up, we can see this pub getting busier, as British expats look for a taste of home. At the moment, though, the atmosphere is very chilled out.

If you like the sound of that, along with some classic British grub, this could become you new favourite local.

The bottom line
Decent option for any homesick Brits living in the area.
