Average food, below average service

I've been to Rock Bottom twice now, and it is a solid 3. The food is average, although my friends who had the steak both said that for the price, the steak is excellent. I had the chicken wrap the first time (poor), and the cajun chicken sandwich the 2nd time (better). Both times, however, the... read more

There is something to be said for Rock Bottom's sticky-floor Student Union vibe but I'm giving it 1/5 because it has the most blatantly racist door policy in Dubai. Asian men get charged AED100 entrance regardless of what kind of group they are in. I went in there once with a mixed group of 10 people and my Filipino friend... More

So we have been to this place a number of times for drinks and generally really enjoyed it. Last night however (27th March) We was sat at our table for a good hour when one of the female bar staff told us to move because the table was "reserved". We pointed out that we had been sat there for a... More

First of all, visit RockBottom only if you wish to be insulted and disrespected. Their entrance policies are downright racist and about entering before or after 8pm is crap. And if you think after paying you're their valued customer, you're sadly mistaken. Staff is filled with attitude and their manager Prasanth is even worse! He will ruin your night just... More

My husband and I came across this place by accident and as it looks like a Night Club would probably have given it a miss but we were hungry! What a fabulous little restaurant. It was "Ladies Night" - with free vodka being handed out (I was on coke sadly!) but we ordered steaks (my husband had the special steak... More

The venue is vivid, crowd relaxed and not pretentious, the band wild.. BUT! The racist door policy is not acceptable. My "not Caucasian looking" friends were asked to pay the entry fee while I get in free of charge. Hitler would love this place.

Popped in for a pint on a Monday night when every other place was completely dead. Live band was playing good music and there was BPL soccer on telly. Some people showed up later, a little action on the dance floor, but not too crowded. I would stop by again. Places like this I could not find in Abu Dhabi.

It was a last minute decision and some locals told me about the place since i was just visiting. I don't regret it at all. As soon as I entered i just fell in love with the atmosphere. the scene reminded me of underground clubs which I'm into and every song played just had me dancing. If your not really... More
