Bar Crawl Guide: Bur Dubai

What’s the first thought that pops into your head when you hear

‘Bur Dubai’? Is it bustling markets? Historical districts? Creekside views or culture? The oldest part of Dubai boasts all of these things, but now you need to add bar crawl to that line of thought. From a classy lounge to kick things off, to lively singing all night long at a cracking pan-Asian bar, Bur Dubai is awash with great venues. You know, it is only one letter away from being ‘Bar Dubai’...

Bar Baar
Leave this brightly coloured and buzzing bar as one of your last and you’ll be elbowing your way to get a (fairly priced) drink. Bar Baar is heaving at the weekend thanks to its lively performances and brilliant Indian grub

Miss Wáng
Prepare to lose your voice by singing along to all the rocking bands or making your way to the stage to belt out a tune yourself. Miss Wang’s is a delight. Head here to finish your night off on a (literal) high note.

Room 108
Like we always say: start the night off with class, and there’s plenty to go around at this charming cigar lounge. With antique furnishings and Cuban themes, kick off the evening right here.

The High Mile Club
There always has to be one wild card in a bar crawl, and we can assure you this place, based all around aviation, is it. With neon blue-hues and airline-type wall panels, it will be like you stepped into something out of Star Wars.

The Huddle Sports Bar & Grill
If there’s an unmissable footie match during the crawl, try not to watch it on this sports bar’s 100-inch TV, or the unfathomably huge 165-inch digital wall. Expect plenty of cheers and banter here.
