The Dek on Eight


With banging day to night options, this place is one of BarChick’s favourite hangouts. Located in Media City (Dubai’s take on London’s Silicon Roundabout), you’ll find a stylish business and local media crowd here. Whether it’s coffee or a poolside p*ss-up you seek, they’ve got you covered.

Sink into the bright orange and pink sofas amongst the palm trees covered in fairy lights, or get horizontal and chill in a cabana. The huge open space here means even at the busiest times you can still have dancing room, and you’ll want it once it gets going. Though, be warned, you can only cool off in the pool during the day, so any drunken pool jumpers come evening will be promptly evicted by security - your call whether it’s worth it.

Popular with the cool kids of Dubai, hit up the 1 Loves Brunch on a Friday for a swish poolside feast with endless food platters and French bubbles from 1 to 4pm - hello boozy buffet love. They’ve even got poolside entertainment including DJs, dancers and their special guest mermaid. Sure.
