Reviewed: Long’s Bar
As its name suggests, this is the longest bar in Dubai, although walking down to the basement and into the British pub we were expecting it to be, er… longer? Quickly realising that the bar is a continuous oval shape taking up the length of the entire venue, we’re back to being impressed. You could genuinely come in here and hide.
Quick note, no mirror exists behind the bar, so before you sit there thinking you’re lovingly staring at yourself, your’re not, these are real actual people sitting at the same bar, just around the corner, in the dark. Don’t be weird.
Pulling up a couple of stalls we sit and chat to the barman, and though it’s not packed for a Friday night, it’s busy enough to create a chilled vibe. With more than 20 screens hanging along the bar, it’s perfect for a quiet night. You, the screen, your favourite team playing, phone on silent, (actually, lets switch it off) and the comfort of a couple of ice cold beverages.
Different offers are on throughout the week, picking out a few you’ll find happy hour daily from 12pm to 8pm, with 30 percent off selected drinks. Gentleman’s Night is every Sunday, 8pm – 12am, with 25 percent off drinks. Perhaps the best, longest happy hour, (see what we did there?), is every Monday, 12pm – 12am, with drinks as low as AED25.
Long’s Bar is an easy place to hang out and chill, with attractive deals on every day.
