“Great place for a drink and snacks”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Ybar is a great place on Yas Island for a drink and snacks. Especially the outdoor patio has a cozy atmosphere with lots of palm trees around the edges. The food menu offers a variety of food. I would recommend the steak, the hamburger and the short ribs.

“Loud music and good drink”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

Rotana layed on a DJ and new outside venue for the GP weekend and it was very, very popular. Good venue with old car display just outside and many current Ferraris parked outside reception, I don' think they all belonged to guests but looked very nice anyway! Probably more ther than in Ferrari World!

“An average bar”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

The interior is nice but too many Televisions spoil the atmosphere, the food is ok but hardly changed over the 2 years I've been here. I would recommend stills over the road for a more enjoyable evening.

“Nice relaxing bar!”
Reviewed June 4, 2012

If you stay in YAS and really don't want to go to Abu Dhabi just for one drink... then go to YBar. Nice drinks, nice crowd, nice bar.
