Flash mob at Barasti

Mass dance at Dubai beach bar appears on internet

You thought you’d seen everything during a night out at Barasti – well, think again.

During one seemingly normal night out at the beach bar, a barman jumped up onto the bar to sing along to 1980s classic pop song ‘Footloose’.

His actions seemed to inspire a group of girls to dance along, and soon a large group had gathered to dance in sync to the song.

Yes, it was a flash mob.

The latest in Dubai – coming just weeks after a flash mob danced at Dubai DXB Airport – popped up on YouTube. It might not be as intricate as some flash mobs, but it’s certainly worth watching for the bit at the end when the grumpy-looking doorman jumps in the pool!
