After a long work week, all you want to do is have a few cold brews with your friends, shoot some pool or maybe even play a game of beer pong. These are some of the bars I know around town that can make it a fun night out for you and your friends!


A Media City favorite, it’s a bar that turns into a club the deeper you go into the night. Start your night early with a few games of pool and end it by showing your best moves on the dance floor later.

Mr Miyagi’s / Cobra Kai

Beer pong under neon lights and crazy décor? Mr Miyagi’s leaves the shady in Thailand & brings the cool colorful vibe to Dubai with this popular hotspot. They’ve got their ladies/mens night, brunches and happy hours but your night will get much better with a game of beer pong.

Rodeo Drive

This ever popular oldie in Dubai has a mechanical bull, beer pong tables under a neon painted ceiling and also a dart board. Most people walk past the few arcade games at the entrance as soon as they see the bull but when every thing is busy, might as well hit those buttons.

Lock, Stock & Barrel (Barsha Heights & JBR)

Pool tables & a dart board but did you know they have an inflated sumo ring during their Friday brunch? These two venues have become a staple in their respective areas, guaranteeing a good time for all!

Axe House

This cool London-spirited bar is a current hotspot amongst the JLT residents. Great drinks, chill vibe and they’ve got an air hockey table!

Stereo Arcade

Calling all the 80s & 90s babies to this venue. Once you enter, it’s like you’ve entered a time machine as you see old arcade games around you. From Street Fighter to NBA Jam, try these out after a few drinks and see how well you do!
The House Party Bar
Think of an all-American house party. The red cups, the bpong tables, retro music in the background, a ball pit in the corner, this is what you’re going to get at this newly opened Sheikh Zayed Road venue. You ready to partay?!

The Hungry Monkey

No beer pong or dart boards here, but you can sit and play board games while sipping on some amazing cocktails.
