With mystic interiors, an expertly created menu, and an enigmatic atmosphere, guests are immersed into the Barfly experience.

Now, witness the unique and celebrity-loved restaurant and lounge take the Palm Jumeirah by storm.
Upon entry, guests are greeted by a sculpture embodying the Goddess of Victory, setting the tone for the rest of the venue’s interiors. The neo-baroque design evokes an unmistakable feeling of seclusion and inimitability, encompassing deep reds and purples, juxtaposed against vivid nature-inspired hues and finished off with brilliant golds. The new space boasts spectacular panoramic views of the lauded Palm Jumeirah land and seascape, adding to the exclusive and upscale indulgences that Barfly has to offer. Dubai’s own nightlife enthusiasts can now experience Barfly within a new era for the brand, whilst still receiving the same A class service that the likes of Hollywood are used to!
