Time Out Says

Al Barsha isn’t short of pubs and bars. We love its hustle and bustle, roadside cafés and shawarma stands, and its nightlife.

One place that could get overlooked in favour of venues that are a bit more in your face is Oak n Barrel, the British pub just off the lobby of the Grand Excelsior hotel.

It’s a pretty big space, with a large bar on your right as you enter, and pool table on your left. The areas are kept apart, so if you don’t want to hear people getting competitive, thankfully, you won’t. If a bar stool isn’t your thing either, there are booths and other tables, most of which come with good views of the TVs, which show sport including the English Premier League.

The drinks selection is fairly standard for Dubai, with European hops and short beverages your best bet, though there are mixed drinks and grape available, too. And for those looking for a bargain, the early evening happy hour has two pints of hops for Dhs30 every day, while the happy hour on Fridays takes place from
1pm to 8pm.

If you’re not a sports fan, entertainment can be scarce. But for people wanting to get away from it all, Oak n Barrel will do the business.

The Bottom Line
A British retreat with a great happy hour.
