Waxy's is shut, but it's now a Goa-theme restaurant / bar.

The 'Star Wars' bar (TGI Thursday) and the George and Dragon (Ambassador) are still going strong.

TGI Thursdays was mental.

We went in on a birthday tour (all dayer). I've seen plenty of brass in Dubai but at 2pm on a Friday afternoon I don't need to be touched up for some slap'n'tickle.

Always cringe when you see the classic big, chunky 50-something Brit with two Asian birds sat with him...nobody talking....just sharing a drink or two. I often hope they just want the company for an hour, but that's just stupid.

Meh. It's just judging a stranger so I'd rather not, but the hat so often fits perfectly.

Yes but I don't mean I did it willingly - I just wandered into something advertised as a 'sports bar' and found myself attracting female companionship.........

A certain poster sent me there on my first weekend in Dubai, telling me it was a good place to go. I was horrified as I tried to make my escape.

I actually quite enjoy going in there, the 'Star Wars' bar (for no more than an hour though), it's a good laugh, especially the larger African girls, they give as good as they get, banter wise that is.

If you want a cheap pint and and half decent pub grub, the George and Dragon in the Ambassador is the place to go.
