A really cool place to go for night out drinks and food, after shopping drinks and definitely to catch the Burj Fountains. Good music, good food, great location, wicked views of the Burj. On the steep side, loads of vouchers out there though, and happy hour is worth it. Service was fine for us, and food arrive quickly. Will def go back…probably too many times :)

Living in Dubai I visit Dubai Mall alot and recently found about about Calabar. Popped in with some visitors and had the happy hour promotion while we watched the fountains with the Burj Khalifa in the background! Good service, great views and great cocktails.

I had been hearing about Calabar from friends for a while and had never got the chance to before. This time around when i went to Dubai i made sure it was the first bar we visited. It surely didnt disappoint! The ambience, location, food and drinks were excellent. Only problem would have been the service which was a little slow. We went there on a Sunday night and found it decently packed even though it was not the weekend. It is a must visit when in dubai because you can sit outside right under the burj and has one of the best views of the dancing fountains.

Well I visted calabar on the 24th nov just before sunset. Great relaxing bar view of the burj and fountain the menu was ok nothing special for what your paying.
I tried the mojito and stuffed olives with feta and sweet potato fries. If you would like a good view of the burj and fountain and average service this is the place.

We opted to sit outside at night and the bar offered a great atmosphere with view of the fountain and Burj Khalifa. Drinks were expensive, as is everywhere for drinks in Dubai, but we took advantage during happy hour and ordered 4 at a time each. I would recommend the cherry bellini! Very good place to chill out!
