The Boston Bar
Retro hideaway in the heart of Satwa
Time Out Says
Once a stalwart of Dubai’s pub scene, Boston Bar may today crop up less regularly on most people’s itinerary for a night out, but the Satwa bar is still going strong.
An American-style pub modelled on that of US ’80s sitcom Cheers, it’s a compact space with an island bar taking centre stage. Expect to find football fans clustered around it whenever there’s a big match on, while a huge raft of nightly deals keep the rest of the punters pouring in.
From ladies’ nights to men’s nights and billiard competitions, you’re never far from an offer, whatever day or time you visit.
With its low ceilings, dark lighting and all-round snugness, however, that old-school bar smokiness can make it feel a little claustrophobic at times, while service can be a little short of friendly.
But if it’s bargain drinks and a no-frills, authentic pub vibe you seek, you’ll be hard-pressed to do better in Satwa.And given it’s just a stone’s throw from some of the city’s best kebabs and curries, you might still find reason to visit…
The bottom line
Long-standing Old Dubai pub with regular deals and sports.
