JOUR­NEY TIME (FROM TECOM): 15 min­utes.

GET­TING IN IF NOT ON GUESTLIST/ VIP/ TA­BLE: Usu­ally OK on a regular night, but if there’s an event it’s nor­mally Dhs100 or Dhs150 for the big­ger names.

NUM­BER OF BARS: 1 bar in­side and 2 out­side.

BAR QUEUES: Too much job- sep­a­ra­tion - one cashier, one or­der taker, one run­ner makes you wait longer.

CLIEN­TELLE: Young peo­ple’s place. Not many over 30s.

COST OF SUN­LOUNGER/DAY BED: Free based on an AED 250 min­i­mum spend at the restau­rant. So not free, it’s 250.

FOOD: Us­ing the burger as the stan­dard, they’re look­ing for 95 AED and you’ve got a feel­ing that it’s gonna be one of those onebite ones too.

MU­SIC/ DJS: The venue has defi nitely lost its al­lure from a few years ago but they’re bring­ing more pro­mot­ers on board this year. Ex­pect deep house and a touch of pro­gres­sive most week­ends.
