Reform Social & Grill
An authentic gastropub serving British food and drinks including breakfast, lunch, dinner and afternoon tea
Time Out Says
There’s no doubt about it, Reform Social Bar & Grill is in about a nice a setting as you get in Dubai. What it is not, however, is “breath-taking”. It doesn’t have stunning Burj Khalifa views and it’s not overlooking the Arabian Gulf, which are often the supposed hallmarks of a quality site in the city. But it is nice. And we mean that in, well, the nicest possible way. The pub (for we think it is more pub than bar – based on the all-important “how brown is it?” test) is nestled in The Lakes, one of the most des res areas of Dubai. Surrounded by greenery, and by the side of a lake, of course, it’s a tranquil place to sit and have a drink or two. There aren’t many exciting hop varieties here, but the mixed drinks menu is impressive. However, we’re not at Reform for a fleeting moment with the flash new thing in town, we’re here to feel comfortable, and relaxed. Reform also has plenty of deals, from curry nights and steak nights, to roast dinner offers at weekends and accompanying Premier League football. There’s a daily happy hour at the pub, as well as a ladies’ night on Tuesdays. Outside there’s a barbecue, cinema screen, a children’s play area and large garden. Families, friends, or couples who want to take a backseat from the 100kph pace of Dubai’s high-rise areas should head to Reform.
