The perfect place to go, to get away from the hustle of everyone on the bridge wanting to get a glimpse of the Dubai Fountains. You can enjoy a drink at sunset here, enjoy the Happy Hour deals and get the perfect view to take in the Dubai Fountain extravaganza. Extremely helpful staff who were more than happy to help...

Ambiance is great, service is cool, cocktails are great and food (mainly tapas to share) are excellent (this time we took the Quesedillas, Black pepper... More

We went to Calabar for happy hour. We loved it! Chilled out, laid back - sitting on bean bags, view of burj khalifa through the palm trees, with good music playing in the backgound. Great cocktails and really good food.

We went to Calabar for happy hour twice during our time in Dubai. The music and atmosphere were very good. Stunning views of the Burj Khalifa and good value drinks during happy hour. Highly recommended.

My friend had recommended this place to me after we did the Burj Khalifa and we booked a table for drinks. We arrived early but there was no issue, we got a great little table outside. I had a yummy cocktail and the presentation was fab! It's happy hour here between 5 and 8pm so we caught about an hour... More

Lounge Music was nice, i tried latino and ginger moctails, great taste although too much ice. Corn fritters and empanadas were delicious. Staff was very nice and helpful: suggested a table outside after 30 mins of sitting insiders

Amazing view, excellent service, good cost benefit, beautiful people. The only think that would add value is having a place to after the bar for clubbing. Fully recommend.

Staying in Downtown Dubai

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown Dubai
You can’t fail to miss Dubai’s iconic Burj Khalifa, the world’s tallest building. It towers over the city and resides in the prestigious Downtown development. Once an old army base, Downtown is now the jewel in Dubai’s crown, a beautiful residential and leisure area housing not only the world’s tallest building, but the world’s largest fountains and mall. Wide marble sidewalks are perfect for strolling, with restaurants, art galleries and children’s play areas. Specially commissioned sculptures line the roads and Downtown is often used as a canvas for modern art displays and community events such as Classic Car Shows and National Day parades. In the cooler months, cross one of the many bridges to the Burj Khalifa park and enjoy a picnic alongside residents and visitors, or enjoy a lunch or dinner watch the dancing fountains. Because of its mixed use, Downtown is a fantastic place to mix with Dubai residents and locals and watch real life unfold in a cosmopolitan environment.
