That's a fairly accurate description of the kip especially at night.

Really? I stayed at the Ramada for 3 weeks about 9 years ago and that pub was ace. Some nice food joints in that hotel also.

Barasti was decent before they built the extension . Sometimes when things get too big and popular they lose the things that made them really good in the first place .

It's not a bad spot during the day but the foods gash and when the sun sets it's better to give it a swerve.

No different from The China Jump and Joe Banana's in Wan Chai in HK in the 90's , great bars but just turned into Twatville in the end .

Really? Blimey - I used to love listening to Red (the guitarist) and that Chinese singer who tried to look about 22 but was actually a grandmother.......... literally........

So - no Old Vic, Red Lion, Rattle Snake, Cyclone, Bunker, etc.......... terribly sad. On the other hand, if they could just close down Fibbers............

One day I was in there just after it opened and Red was there organising the placement of speakers etc. Looks like he may still be there after Ramadan? Think I first saw him in Billy Blues years ago!

Guess you could add Humphreys, Dubai Country Club, Arif Castle pubs and some of the joints in The Imperial Suites to that list?

I get down to Dubai hardly at all these days, but feel Golden Star are not as good as they once were. I guess it's hardly surprising banging on 7 day a week for 11 months a year. I first saw them about 12-13 years ago when they were resident in Arif Castle. Only 3 original members left now.
