Visited here with a friend, the place was heaving with crowds, which I expected due to the occasion, do frequent Pj,s often, but was very annoyed by the price of drinks, I'm sure we never pay that much usually.

A lot of wated people around and security allows them to bother other people. One lady started throwing full glasses of beer to another guy in his face and the security guy was just watching and they took out the crazy woman and 10 minutes later she was inside again.

Visited a couple of times during my stay in Abu Dhabi. Nice place. Lovely seating area by the pool. Good band playing rock music the nights we were there. Food was pretty average pub grub but not too fussed about that. Friendly staff and drinks were reasonably priced
