Icon Bar & Lounge

Located in the heart of Dubai Media City, this is a post-work haunt for Dubai media types, and it’s a decent bet for a drink and a bite to eat. The menu features the regular pub grub staples – burgers, sandwiches and steaks. Staff are friendly but the service is patchy, with some requests needing to be repeated. The food won’t win awards, but it won’t leave anyone disappointed either – decent and fairly priced is the fairest description. The interior is pleasant and if you’re not used to Dubai’s glitz and glamour you’d be really impressed by what is actually quite a snazzy little bar. The upstairs area can be smoky, but there is an area downstairs where smoking is not permitted, although it doesn’t quite have the same atmosphere. If you’re in Media City it’s a venue well worth a visit, even if you’re not a media type.
