Time Out Says

Let’s be honest, finding a spot for a chilled beverage in Madinat Jumeirah isn’t challenging. There are many waterfront bars and restaurants all offering unbeatable views of either the glistening sea or the Burj Al Arab. So what does one have to do to stand out from the roster of impressive venues? Have a cosy Polynesian theme with a buzzing vibe and generous happy hour, that’s what.

Trader Vic’s is where you want to be when in mood for a hip-swaying boogie. Everything from the décor to the drinks served in coconut shells at this 12-year-old bar screams “you’re on holiday” as we arrive for happy hour on a week night. The two-for-one mixed drinks deal from 6pm to 8pm comes with a groovy Latin American soundtrack, courtesy a live band. Despite the tasty drinks, service isn’t so swift, perhaps because each concoction is shaken and stirred to perfection before being poured.

Trader Vic’s is also the bar you’ll want to finish off your evening in after you’ve wandered along the palm-lined beaches of Madinat Jumeirah and taken the abra across from Al Qasr. If you haven’t experienced such an evening yet, what are you waiting for?

The bottom line
A tropical retreat to show off to visitors.
