"Buddha Bar» is the world-renowned bustling restaurant and bar brand which can be also found in Dubai. This place is so popular that it is always crowded. So, if you want to eat there, it’s best to book a table in advance, especially on Thursdays and Fridays. Good service, not bad selection of food and a good wine list make... More

I go to the Buddha bar every few months, it's a great place to hang out with a beer or delicious cocktail, taking in the cool vibes.

We went here as we seen it had good reviews on here so thought that we would try it out. As we weren't eating we just sat at the bar and had a cocktail each but there wasn't much of an atmosphere in the place so we decided to just have the one and go on somewhere else. The place... More

A Eatery far beyond expectations. It is a double storied area along the Marina. A hip nightspot if I may say so. A great way to spend a great evening specially with the large Bay windows providing an excellent view of the Marina. The seating is comfortable and they serve some of the most exotic and well prepared cocktails.

Staying in The Marina

Neighborhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
