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!
