Laid-back beach bar at JBR

Time Out Says

Picture the scene. The sand between your toes, palm trees swaying in the breeze, an icy cold beverage in hand. So far, so beach holiday. 

In reality you’re just a taxi ride from your apartment/office, although your thoughts of that unanswered calendar invitation and impending deadline won’t be further from your mind once you’re settled in at Palm Grill.

One of the best things about Dubai is that you’re never far from that vacation vibe, and with the perfect winter weather it’s the ideal chance to make the most of the city’s beach bars.

The Ritz-Carlton Dubai is one of the most established hotels in the city – celebrating its 20th birthday this year. And this popular beach spot is an excellent place to unwind on the sand, pint in hand. There’s even a new fire pit area to the left of the restaurant, where you can chill out amid the lush gardens.

The food is decent and the snacks (especially the Mexican prawn cocktail) are worth nibbling on as you watch the sun set. Don’t pitch up on a Saturday afternoon, unless you’re looking for brunch, however.

Drinks don’t come cheap (half pints are an eye-watering Dhs50) but that’s expected given most of Dubai’s beach bars have a tendancy to overprice.

Drinks in the daily happy hour from 4pm until 7pm are Dhs35, so head down here at sunset to make the most of the views and your dirhams.
