YNOT Bar & Kitchen

Why you need to visit this upbeat, funky grape bar in central Marina location

Time Out Says


If you’re looking for a grape bar in the Marina, then YNot should be on your list.

Set on the lower level of the InterContinental Dubai Marina (a slick, modern hotel that’s also home to Jason Atherton’s Marina Social) YNot affords great views out across the water and the twinkling lights of the passing yachts.

When it comes to décor, YNot has a stark, industrial-style appearance, yet the vibe is warm and friendly. There’s a series of mismatched furniture, and we love the quirky puns and grape-related quotes that are painted on the walls.

Service can be on the slow side (even on occasions when it’s not especially busy), which can be irksome, and it can be on the smoky side.

Deals are great, however. From daily happy hours, a Tuesday ladies’ night and even cheese and grape offers, there’s a wide range, meaning that although it’s not usually packed-out, there’s generally a busy enough buzz about the place.

Fridays see the brunch crowd from Accents upstairs descend, but most of the time you’ll find an upbeat but relaxed vibe.

It’s not a bar you’ll stay in all night, but for a quick catch-up over a drink, it’s a good option.

The bottom line
Frills-free bar for a glass of grape.
