Rockbottom has high octane entertainment!

Went there late on a Sunday night on a recommendation. No cover charge. Truly excellent live band. Good buzz. Variety of ex-pats mainly there. For those who are Irish reading this I'd describe it as the "coppers of Dubai!"

I really never ate there but the band is really nice because they are always changing their repertory and playing new songs. The staff is very friendly and the location is good! Drinks are not expensive and there are pool tables It's one of my favorite places in Dubai !!!

The bar in Karama (there's another location in Tecom which we haven't been to) reminded us of an old american bar. It made us feel at home. For 90 aed you can get a steak/side and 1.5 glasses of wine. Pretty decent food and the band was really entertaining. Overall, we had a good time.

Rock Bottom is a great bar/restaurant/club all in one! I have only dined on finger food (chicken wings and nachos) which was a good munch to line the stomach for the impending Bullfrog cocktails I was later to consume! The music in here is always pretty decent with a band and resident DJ for the bands intervals, music is mostly... More

Very bad. Came here a lot. Food is good, waitresses usually grumpy. Now all of a sudden they charge men to get in unless you are cabin crew. We came with a group of 15 people, some of us where in already but where asked to pay when they collected their friends at the door. You can imagine the whole... More

Right outside the burjuman station, its easy to get to.The salad was good,steak was thick & tough & tiramisu tasted like it was sitting in the fridge too long. Their earlier band was better. Smokey atmosphere like most Dubai restaurants.
