All-American bar in Souk Madinat Jumeirah
  • 1

Time Out Says

It’s not a setting that screams stars and stripes, but Madinat Jumeirah plays host to one of the city’s most laid-back all-American bars – with a spacious terrace overlooking the waterways to boot.

The smokehouse, which offers a sizeable menu of comfort food favourites as well as loads of freakshakes, has a huge area upstairs – but it’s the lower floor where the real party happens.

Inspired by Deep South barbecue heritage, the theme here is rusty and industrial (think exposed brickwork, iron beams and corrugated metal) that adds to the ‘let your hair down’ dive bar atmosphere of the place.

And the focus of the room is very much the island bar, where bartenders whip up US-style mixed drinks and serve customers sitting around the edges on high stools.

A good selection of offers makes it an ideal spot for a few drinks with friends – selected beverages are Dhs30 each day from 5pm to 8pm, while Wingman Wednesdays see unlimited wings piled up on customers’ plates. And they’re tasty enough, too.

You won’t find blaring beats here either, although Scottish-Canadian rock band The Boxtones do a set every Wednesday from 9pm to carry the crowds into the night.

This Souk Madinat bar isn’t a place for an uber-trendy night out, nor is it somewhere to head for a romantic evening. It’s low-key, casual and fun, and it’s more than happy to stay that way.
