Time Out Says

From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
Sketch bar is a little gem found in the middle of the hustle and bustle of Deira. Saturday night admitingly can be very quiet (they usually put on live entertainment) but the setting is very smart and laid back. With several different options of where to sit (bar, or lounge chair), staff seem to be long suffering when they encounter indecisive people. The extensive menu boasts such blast-from-the-past dishes as lobster thermidor as well as the more standard insalata Caprice and the classic beef sirloin to follow. Both are prepared to a very high standard, the kitchen knows how to cook a good steak and meals here are thoroughly enjoyable. The whole experience is worth a visit and, unusually for a cafe, it has an alcohol license and an extensive grape list.
