Its a laid back, cozy place serving warm tasty meals and in good spirits. Since i was there with family, we sat in a separate no smoking area. There was live music playing in the open seating area and a PL football match was playing on the big screen in the bar room. All in all a good place to... More

Friendly and cosy pub hidden away in Jebel Ali Village. Good food and drinks. Very affordable. The staff get a bit overwhelmed on very busy nights. There's a new band now, just as good as the previous one.

The Jebel Ali Recreation Club is a great place for expats to down beers and food in a pub style atmosphere. The offering has been reduced over the years and they don't serve pork anymore but it is still a place people call home. The drinks are reasonable and the food is what you get for what you pay. It...

Nothing like anything else here in Dubai. Rustic and true to its nature, by far one of the best places. Reasonable priced drinks, huge portions of food. Awesome place.

This is the place to be, if you are looking for a decent place serving drinks and good food. One of the oldest's in Dubai, this club has been able to restore its charm and liveliness. Despite being low on the pricing side compared to other clubs, the club management hasn't compromised on the quality of food and service. Sheesh... More

We recommend the wonderful chicken curry here! Good food and drink at very reasonable prices. There was a rather smokey bar which we did not like. Mustn't forget to mention the 'fat chips', don't miss those!

A surprise survivor of the mega developments in Dubai, one of the few places where if it is not broke do not fix it seems to have applied ............ for now anyway. Reasonable prices on hops and water, pub group better than the norm, reasonable cost and l;arge portions. Yes for a visit, make you own mind up then if... More

On walking in you would think you have gone through a time warp back 30 years to an old working men's club , you can still smoke in clubs in Dubai so this adds to this impression , however this soon becomes part of its charm ! The staff are lovely and welcoming without being over powering , again very... More

Had a fun night with friends and their family, they have a non smoking room in which family with kids. we had a variety of cuisine. Any order will take atleast 30-40 minutes to supply, and their open restaurant is having live band also. Nice place to sit with friends and spend evening
