Time Out Says

If you live on the Palm Jumeirah and you’ve been looking for a new place for drinks with your mates and to watch the latest football match, you’re in luck. Club Vista Mare, a strip of beachside restaurants and bars, has just opened on the Palm, and it’s home to The Tap House, a new gastropub.

Inside, it’s very industrial-looking, with exposed bricks, metal pipes on the ceiling, and those old-school filament lights hanging everywhere. There’s a long bar with leather stools, and you can sit inside or out on the terrace, where there are views over the water and of the Dubai skyline. There are floor-to-ceiling windows, though, so even if you’re sitting indoors you can enjoy the view – when you’re not watching sports, that is.

There are TV screens dotted around, showing whatever big sporting event is on at the moment, but they’re all overshadowed by the massive screen on the other side of the bar, which takes up one whole wall. It’s perfect if you don’t want to miss any of the action, but if you’re not bothered about sports, it’s a lot more peaceful outside.

The bar has an extensive menu of craft hops, and 24 taps behind the bar. There are also hops-based mixed drinks, if you want to try something different, and mixed drinks are made using everything from liquid nitrogen to blowtorches. There are a few of tables with hops taps in the middle, too. Sit around those with friends and pour your own drinks.

The food menu includes the usual pub grub, with a few more unusual offerings such as duck ragout crêpe. If you’re only feeling a little peckish, though, there are bowls of popcorn. Kick back and enjoy.

The Bottom Line
The perfect new spot to watch sport or just admire the views.
