Barzar @ Souk Madinat Jumeira

November 17, 2010

because i would catch a flu if i don’t get myself out of the breezy 360, the boyfriend and i decided to change venues. we took a buggy from Jumeira Beach Hotel and went straight to Souk Madinat Jumeira.

the ambiance: it was crowded that night and the dubai-ites were all so happy that the weather is finally giving us what we need: the chance to sit outside without getting drenched with our own sweat. we arrived at around 11pm and took us about 15mins to get ourselves seats outside. nevertheless, the weather is great that night and the souk at night is a sight to behold.

staff: are inefficient and will avoid you at all costs. i’ve no idea why they do that. i think you literally have to dance naked to catch the waiter’s attention, otherwise there will be no drinks for you. the whole process of ordering, getting your drinks, getting the bill and getting the change will make you stay there for 2 whole hours – please be informed that we just had 1 drink each. ordering another round was definitely out of the question as we don’t want to go thru the whole process of waiting for a lifetime all over again. i have always loved barzar – some of my best moments in dubai happened here but the service for that night was just plainly horrible.

price: for 2 shots of vodka with sprite and 2 shots of red label, we paid around AED150. a normal price in dubai i guess. 🙂

rating: the service was too horrible that i don’t even want to give them any point at all. maybe a 2 out of 10, let’s give them credits for the good ambiance. that’s it.
