the Blue Bar in the Novotel at WTC has a 'beat the clock' promotion on Saturday evenings.
6-7, beers are 9 (yes nine) AED
13AED the next hour
19AED the following etc

its only a very limited selection of bottles as far as beer goes, though, and the atmosphere at that time of day can easily be compared to a crypt, which worsens when some bint appears and strangles a keyboard at 108 decibels.

Default Update

My Bar List (so far)

The Observatory - Marriott Hotel, Marina
A decent hotel bar with a good happy hour, bar food and excellent view, I like it because it is walking distance to The Torch.
Happy Hour Every night:
Saturday – Tuesday, 5pm – 10pm
Wednesday – Friday, 5pm – 8pm
AED20 bottle beer amd mixed drinks

The Underground - Haptoor Grand, Marina
A decent hotel bar and pub food, pool tables. I don't like the actual "bar", it is sort of in two parts and doesn't lend itself to a single person sitting down to grab a pint or a meal so I always get a table.
Ribeye AED 90
Happy hour: Sat-Thu 6-8pm, Fri 12-8
Heineken Extra Cold 29, Bud 25
Regular: bucket of 5 Amstel 126, Strongbow 125, Sol 125, Bud 125

McGettigan's Irish Bar - Bonnington Hotel, JLT
A nice bar with outside seating during the cool months they convert to an AC cooled tent in the summer. I've liked the food when I have eaten there and I like the bar area as well.

Jebel Ali Club - Near Ibn Battuta Mall, Jebel Ali
Kinda a throw back to the old times, I think this bar was here during my last stay in the early 90's. I haven't tried much of the the food but they do have a happy hour and outside seating.

Barasti - Le Meridian, Marina
Beach bar with large outside area, live sports activities and a beach. I look forward to spending more time here when it cools down a bit.
Heineken Extra Cold 35
Ribeye 170
Shrimp starter 35

Jockey's - Panorama Hotel, Bur Dubai
Meat market, I didn't get to spend much time here but I am sure I will be back.

Marine's Bar - Seaview Hotel, Bur Dubai
Meat market with a decent Filipino band that I enjoy. How can you go wrong with four hot lead vocalists?
AED50 cover includes one free drink

York Club - York International Hotel, Bur Dubai
Meat market with a band that is "OK", pool tables.
AED75 cover but no drink!

Stayin’ Alive - Imperial Suites Hotel, Dubai - to do list

Krossroads - Imperial Suites Hotel, Dubai - to do list

Nelsons - Media Rotana Tecom
Nice pub with a good bar and relaxed seating.

Bunker Bar - Montgomerie Golf Academy
Quiet bar and dining, Heineken Extra Cold is AED40 but you get 25% off food and drink if you pay by Visa

Liquor Stores

Ajman and RAK does not require a license to buy booze but it is not legal to transport through Sharjah.

Ajman Hole in the Wall @25.419323, 55.440542

RAK Barricuda Shop @25.587349,55.652618

Need a lot? Delivery available, I think AED 1500 minimum

I was hoping this was being funny.... But somehow I am guessing it isnt as well.

Wait till abc goes to the clubs here and finds over half the bar is full of drunk arabs and muslims Surprise, Surprise, they are usually the worst off

Or goes to the Hole and the Wall and to see how many muslims are buying booze there.

The first time I went I was behind a guy who tried to use his credit card, it wasn't "authorized" to purchase alcohol and he had to pay cash. What was that about?

OK, but my first event will involve over consumption of alcohol followed by my newest forum related bit of knowledge "Eve Teasing" and to show people I am not sexist I will also let myself be "Adam Teased" as much as you want!

I learn A LOT on these forums!
