Time Out Says

Nothing screams holiday more than drinks outside by an enormous hotel infinity pool with a barbecue sizzling away in the background and live jazz played by a saxophonist. For pure escapism, this al fresco poolside 4th floor spot is the place to be.

Drinks are reasonably priced, with mixed drinks and draught hops from Dhs50 and grape from Dhs45. There’s also a daily happy hour from 6pm to 8pm offering buy one get one free on selected drinks, and a ladies’ night on Tuesdays offering two free drinks from 7pm to 10pm. All of this keeps the punters flowing in, and yet it doesn’t get too busy to enjoy the relaxed, laid-back vibes.

That brilliant live soundtrack of cool, smooth jazz is a regular feature and really helps if all you want is to kick back and unwind. The backdrop of the JBR towers is a great help, too.

Whether you want to let your hair down during the day or at night, this is a stunning venue in which to do it.

Order a chargrilled burger from over by the barbecue and a chilled drink, and let the water (metaphorically) wash your stress away. You’ll be glad of your choice.

The Bottom Line
This wonderfully relaxed spot will melt your troubles away.
