Social Room

Head here to quench that mid-week thirst

Time Out Says

Jason Atherton’s Social franchise has a reputation for creative and artistic offerings, and while Marina Social at the InterContinental adheres to the brand’s philosophy, the adjacent bar has become more than just a holding ground for eager diners. Social Room, with its warm, dimly lit surroundings and inventive drinks, is worth a visit alone.

The bearded blokes who work behind the bar are serious about the liquid they pour into every glass, and the mixed beverage menu is rife with wit and humour.

Dill, passion fruit and Cheerio milk are star ingredients, while the bar snacks menu ranges from sourdough pizza to wagyu beef sliders and triple-cooked chips. Given who runs the kitchen, you know you’re in safe hands.

Even though Dubai Marina is packed with some of the city’s finest bars, Social Room stands out for both its sense of humour and sophistication. And the nightly half-price happy hour from 6pm until 8pm doesn’t hurt either.

The Bottom Line
Great ambience and a live DJ. Head here to quench that mid-week thirst.
