Noir

A swanky bar at Mall of the Emirates

Time Out Says

If you’re looking for a bar to rest weary feet post-shopping spree at Mall of the Emirates, you’re not short of options.

However, few are as glam as Noir.

Inside is, aptly, very dark and moody, with large sofas, a long bar and low tables.

It’s glitzy, possibly erring on the tacky side, but well-kitted out. Outside is equally loungey, with comfy seating and a large fireplace (just ignore the buzz of Sheikh Zayed Road), and, on our visit, is where most people choose to sit.

The bar is quite swanky, and people are dressed accordingly, so it’s not somewhere to turn up in your well-worn trainers.

And drinks prices reflect the surroundings, with the cheapest glass of grape starting at above Dhs60. Hops starts at around Dhs50, with shorts coming in at a similar price – unless you have a spare couple of grand for a bottle.

For a more pocket-friendly option there’s a Friday night brunch, where it’s Dhs215 for women and Dhs315 for men, which is a cracking deal either way for four hours of unlimited drinks.

Service is a bit hit and miss and snacks – ceviche, skewers, sliders and the like – aren’t up to much either.

But if you’re looking for a swanky spot post-shopping it’s not a bad shout, although there are more lively and better bars in the area to visit.
