We went to the Sherlock Holmes pub after viewing the Dubai museum (recommended). Very friendly and welcoming staff, especially (but not only) Grace. We enjoyed some inexpensive drinks during happy hour and then had fresh fish and chips. Service is efficient as well as friendly and the food and drink is good value. We will go back and recommend to... More

THe only silver linining during my dark stay in Arabian Courtyard was a short visit to this pub. But actually, it was not the pub which deserves the credit. It was a courteous bartender from Haryana (India) whose service was excellent. The hotel desperately needs a lot of well trained guys like these who actually care for guests.

Stayed at the hotel and used the bar several times. Always seemed to be happy hour! Staff are very friendly and efficient and the beer and food was good. Not really an english pub of course (not that many english beers) but was comfortable and welcoming.

This pub is located in the Arabian Courtyard hotel. The atmosphere is great as were the staff. Happy hour is from noon to 20:00 and with Dubai alcohol prices, you need to take advantage of it.

Super staff, especially Grace who hails from Kenya. A lovely band and an opportunity to join in and sing-a-long. The service is TOPS and the food tasty. Ask Grace to prepare her special mint drink (with or without alcohol) - and enjoy.

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.
