Bahri means ‘views of the sea’ and you’ll get the most stunning ocean vistas from the beautiful terrace of this bar, overlooking the waterways of the Madinat with the iconic Burj Al Arab towering in the background.
Bahri is the place to be for cocktail lovers – it’s no surprise Bahri Bar mixologist Guru Prashanth was named Best Bartender in the Middle East at the Caterer Awards 2013. Sample the Bubbly Madinat, a mix of peach and Champagne, or the signature gin-based Cool as a Cucumber.
Live soul, jazz and blues tunes are performed by a house duo daily except Sunday, and stars who have grooved along to the music include footballer Zinedine Zidane and former England manager Sven-Göran Eriksson.
Bar snacks come tapas-style and include generous portions of sushi and tasty tacos. If you’ve been to brunch, head to the After Brunch Beach Session every Friday from 4pm-8pm to get two-for-one deals on selected drinks.
