Fodor's Expert Review Barasti Bar
Barasti might be the old dame of bars and nightlife in Dubai, but it's still going strong. It's grown from a pub set on a large wooden jetty right on the water, through to a multilevel bar and club, with the largest live sports screen in the region, on-sand alfresco drinking spaces and plenty of room for international DJs and other live music. It shifts from a chilled-out venue to relax with a drink and shoot some pool, to dancing and general craziness depending on the evening. No matter the entertainment, the atmosphere is always easygoing and attracts all ages. Barasti also serves food and shisha.
