I stopped here on a Saturday night after a long night of sight seeing. Me and a friend decided to have a drink and call it a night. We were at the var and the bill came up to 90, so i dropped 100 and handed over the bill. The bartender came back with a 10 and told me that... More

The outdoor part of the lounge is amazing, the seating and music are perfect for friend's outing. Food is also good. The place has "happy hour" daily and is a good choice after work. However the indoor side is not nice, has different style (formal) with loud music. Recommended if the weather is nice at sunset time till the evening.

Prior seating outside reservations are a must but their booking system whether done online or by phone is excellent. Lovely location outside overlooking Burj Khalifa with nice views of the fountains. Inside brings a cosy atmosphere. Large drinks selection albeit a tad on the pricey side unless its Happy Hour! Nice bar food nibbles.

Sat outside drinking cocktails listening to the music staring at the burj khalifa it's like you've left our world and arrived on another planet. Sensational

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...

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.

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.
