Description: The World famous Barasti Beach Bar has always been one of the city’s most vibrant bars. Boasting a vast outdoor seating area and Dubai’s best live sport big screen, it’s simply the best place to watch sport with a cool drink and bar snacks. Inside, live music is on throughout the week with plenty of seating for sundowners, food and a fantastic night out. If lazy beach days are your thing, there’s no better place to while away the hours than the award winning Barasti Beach. A Dubai institution, Barasti offers the perfect mix of great music, delicious food and divine cocktails against the stunning backdrop of Dubai Marina. If you don’t want to leave when the sun goes down, that’s alright with us! Stay and party into the night with the world’s best DJs at our renowned Sugar Beach nights. Open daily with free entry, it’s easy to see why we remain one of Dubai’s favourite hot spots year after year.

Located on a beach with good music, this place will keep you entertained. Have your fill of the drinks and head to the beach to shake a leg. Drinks and food are very reasonably priced, the service was average. Food tasted good as well for a change.
Parking might be a problem during weekends.

I would recommend to anyone looking for a place to chill out the atmosphere is really cool. You should also try Aprons & Hammers near by for dinner.

For NYE 2013/2014 myself and a group of friends decided to book one of the VIP tables at Barasti - it was worth every penny. We got a great table on the balcony area overlooking the beach (the beach was essentially the dance floor for the night), our waiters were super helpful, we had plenty to drink and some excellent small plates were served to us.

For around 650AED each (you have to pay for the table), we had a bottle of champagne, 2 bottles vodka, 3 wine, and i think around 3 or 4 buckets of beer, as well as unlimited mixers. We were also served hot food any time up to midnight (so 11.30pm for us) which was a mountain of risotto balls, prawn skewers, mini burgers and a few other things.

Barasti also decorated all the tables including the addition of party hats etc which was a cute touch.

The view of the fireworks from the palm was unbelievable (they broke the world record that night for fireworks), and even Will Smith made an impromptu appearance with Jazzy Jeff on stage (no joke!).

But even without Will, the night was incredible, and definitely worth trying out or visiting again for next year.

Thanks Barasti!

This bar is very relaxed and definitely for the tourist in you. Preferable to go at night when you can enjoy the beautifully lit buildings nearby. The menu offers good tasty food within a variable price range. There was live entertainment and you can choose to go early and enjoy the laid back approach or later when the crowds arrive for a different vibe.
