Y Bar has a great atmosphere

The Y bar is one of the cheapest places for a few drinks on Yas island. The out door patio area is great in cooler weather. It can get a bit smokey during Ramadan as the place needs to be hidden away, with doors shut. The staff are friendly and always helpful and very honest. My friend left his... read more

Called in with a mate for a few beers, the bonus being it was happy hour on Saturday afternoon. Really nicely presented bar with the style of subterraneum New York bar almost!! Great service from the staff, who kept topping up our Crisps and Nuts bowls too.

Really enjoyed our visit here. Abu Dhabi can be expensive to have alcoholic drinks but places like this offer BOGOF on wine and beer! This means you can enjoy a few without feeling ripped off. Nice decor, very friendly staff. The burgers and bar snacks were excellent. I was so hungry I forgot to take a photo !! Can definitely... More

I love the Y Bar Burger. I rarely go for anything else on their menu, but on that odd occasion I can vouch for the Fish and Chips and the Salmon. But if it is your first visit and you like a good burger, the Y Bar Burger is for you.

Friendly service and excellent value with the four hours of BOGOF offer. Tried the bar snacks and found them very good but portions could be better. The atmosphere is great and all the staff are professional.

We decided to have a quick drink after having a meal nearby. Being the end of the working week it was busy but very smokey which we were not expecting. It took a while to work out where to stand to get served. The prices were reasonable as we were still within

Just love this place. Good pub food and great happy hour from 5 - 9 pm on selected drinks. The vibe is right up there with nice music. Comfy chairs with some of the best outdoor seating areas on the street side. The pulled smoked brisket tacos are just awesome. Pretty upmarket as well but also a nice relaxed atmosphere.... More
