Nice and trendy looking bar which serves good and potent cocktails! Service was pretty decent and for a Sunday night it was quite busy. I would recomend to try if you are staying on Yas Island

I seldom go to bars but have been in this one three times in the last week. They have a new shipment of fresh Cuban cigars I've been sampling. Two visits and the wait staff already knew what I wanted, and the security guys know my first name. Enjoying this very much!

Within minutes our order is taken and when we... More

Very dimly lit restaurant and gets very smoky. Went as a group of 6 and struggled to find seating area other than right by the door. Would not take entertainer voucher as was told promotion running. Happy hour? Food was ok but there are plenty other much brighter, nicer places in AD
