Drop in for a drink at the end of a day's sightseeing in Dubai. This is the in house pub of the Arabian Courtyard Hotel and Spa. Happy hour from 20:00 to 02:00. Friendly, smiling staff who are genuinely pleased to see you.

I stayed at the Arabian Courtyard and visited the pub for dinner 3 times. I was travelling solo and was well looked after by the wonderful staff. I had the fish and chips, chicken breast and club sandwich which were all great. The pub has happy hour from 12-8pm and live music on some nights. The atmosphere is very relaxed... More

The pub is situated in the old area of Dubai. Great for shopping and Sherlock Holmes is ideal for women who want to shop and husbands who don't ! The barman Ashish makes a fantastic Bloody Mary and the smiling waitresses ensure the nibbles are replenished.There is a band at night and they play their hearts out and seem very... More

I have visited the pub daily during my weeklong stay at the Arabian Courtyard. Fantastic staff who remembers your name and drink order after the first night there. Food is good, and they have varying daily happy hour specials that's are reasonably priced and better than most typical hotel restaurants.

During our annual stay at the Arabian Courtyard we frequented Sherlock’s bar most evenings, nice to get away from it all, with such friendly staff who remember us from previous trips, and for Dubai, reasonably priced alcoholic drinks – well worth getting your orders in during happy hour!

Staying in The Creek

Neighbourhood Profile
The Creek
The smell of frankincense hangs thick and heavy in the air, waves lap gently at jetties, and market traders call to passing tourists. The creek, originally the place where pearl boats docked and left on missions to uncover jewels from the deep, is where the city really began. The Al Fahidi District on the Creekside is one of the oldest heritage sites in Dubai, easily recognizable with its iconic wind towers, the original air conditioning. Home to the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding and the Dubai Museum, the old buildings also house a range of cafes, shops and art galleries. Often called “the real Dubai,” this is a wonderful place to lose yourself before catching an abra across the creek to the spice souk, where your senses will be overwhelmed with tastes, smells, and sounds.
