A lot of wated people around and security allows them to bother other people. One lady started throwing full glasses of beer to another guy in his face and the security guy was just watching and they took out the crazy woman and 10 minutes later she was inside again.

Visited a couple of times during my stay in Abu Dhabi. Nice place. Lovely seating area by the pool. Good band playing rock music the nights we were there. Food was pretty average pub grub but not too fussed about that. Friendly staff and drinks were reasonably priced

I would definitely recommend them for Friday Brunches. Food offerings were great especially the Tacos (a must try!). There is live entertainment and a kids play area as well.

Had a similar experience to the preview reviewer. Went to visit in the evening and it was pretty full from the post brunch hangers on. The drunken Santas weren't a problem but there were a number of aggressive what appeared to be European drunks staggering around on a short fuse. The staff were incredibly slow to bring a menu and...
