Description: Head downstairs to the basement to find Jambase, the Supper Club. The passion for music and creativity in the kitchen are a hallmark of people from southern regions - think Latin America, southern Europe and the vibrancy of South Africa. Such an eclectic mix is shaken and stirred in Jambase. Jambase is the ideal location for drinks or dinner before a night of revelry. With eclectic style, the ambience is stylishly informal, always upbeat and enlivening. The restaurant can host up to 90 people.

“Very very slow!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2013 via mobile

2 adults 2 children aged 8 & 11.
Arrived at 7:30, left at 10:45. We sat outside, great view, however we were denied the pleasures of mooching through the souk because most shops had closed by the time we left. It wasn't busy & we got no explanation for why so slow. So overall we were very disappointed, most unlike other Jumeirah places.

“A complete evening out with friends”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

Really good food, big portions according to the prices. Nice and relaxing music at the beggining of the dinner and more like club atmosphere at the end. You cannot not enjoy this kind of night out. The only drawback is that the smoking area is the closest to the music and the stage/dancefloor, so if you are a group of no-smokers you will be sitted far from the stage.

“Great party night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

Brilliant service and food whilst enjoying live music. Great for an adult party night as over 21s only. I celebrated my birthday here and was really spoiled.
Pity about the smokers around us!

“Good food, good music”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Just what one could ask for a restaurant and bar.

The only problem I frequently face is getting in. There seems to be a bit of snobbishness at the door and most people have to flaunt their connections just to be allowed in. If one can swallow that, then you're bound to have a good time.

“Jazz at the Madinat”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Have been a few times although only eaten there once. Food and service were good although it was to dark to really see the food you were eating. I find it more of a place to drink and listen to live music than to eat. Great jazz live band the first time we went, since then the live bands have never hit the same heights. Very popular and gets busy on weekends.
