We have been in this bar various times during Euro Cup 2016. Happy hour is good, I like the selection of drinks, two decent wines, one good sparkling wine, Blanc de Blancs, three or four quality beers. Timing has been good, -happy hour used to run during Euro Cup 8 pm to 12 am-, although it has reverted to "normal... More

We popped in here to have a drink and to meet some friends. The place is nice and staff attentive. As we arrived during happy hour we had the happy hour drinks menu. All was going well until 5 minutes before the end of happy hour. The waitress took our order, disappeared for a few minutes and came back to... More

We've been to the Hub already 3 times and overall the service was excellent! Happy hours are the best in the town and quality of the drinks is always very good! We will definitely come back soon.

Service, excellent. Attentive and discrete. Prices really good (20 Dhrms) for limited drink options, but still remarkable value. Atmosphere inside and outside relaxed and like any well organised and reported meeting, the 'minutes' turn into 'hours'. Try the Moscow Mule in the copper cup or the excellent G&T with Hendricks, Tanquery or Bombay Sapphire. So good, been there twice and... More

A group of 10 of us tried the Hub on our way home from brunch. We were attracted by the very good happy hour deal. We arrived and were given a very warm welcome by Yoel who made sure we had pashminas and menus straight away. The selection of happy hour drinks was great and the service was superb -... More

The Hub is a great place to chill and start your evening. Have been in serval times, you are always made welcome by the staff. It has a well priced Happy Hour Daily 4pm -8pm offering a good selection of drinks including Sparkling for 20dhs. That takes some beating in JBR. If you go outside of Happy Hour for a... More

Located at a great hotel, has several happy hours during the week. Nice cocktails, elevated prices (you would expect more for the prices)

Dropped in for drinks and a late night bite. Service was slow. Place lacked atmosphere. Kitchen was closed when I arrived. We had one drink and left.

Lovely hotel to stay in, this bar shows a lot of the footy but I couldn't find my match on so went to Hilton, 5 mins walk to the studio bar and that had all footy on but a bit smoky. My wife and I would definitely revisit hotel and this bar, but look out for deals

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
