Time Out Says

There’s a reason this long-standing Madinat haunt won Time Out Dubai’s Best Grape Bar gong at the 2017 Music & Nightlife Awards. Firstly, it serves a huge range of drinks, many of them very reasonably priced indeed.

Then there are the excellent deals it puts on throughout the week. King among them is the daily happy hour that serves up glasses from Dhs25 and selected bottles from just Dhs100, and the Steak It Easy deal on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, featuring a steak with truffle fries and a glass of red grape for just Dhs150.

But what really keeps us going back time and again is its terrace. In a city filled with sprawling, flash outdoor nightspots, The Agency’s tiny, low-key sliver of balcony is a delightfully intimate spot, perfect for all imaginable occasions, from a post-work gossip to an anniversary date with your other half, bubbly in hand.

And the uninterrupted views of the Burj Al Arab don’t hurt a jot either. A winner in every way.

The bottom line
A smart, ever-popular grape bar.
