Victor’s Bar & Restaurant

Friendly pub with lots of deals

Some places, like people, mature well with age. We’re going to suggest that Victor’s has done just that. Since opening in 2017, the pub has gone from strength to strength, cementing itself among the top traditional watering holes in the city.

It’s a friendly place, where you can walk in, pull up a stool at the central, circular bar and make conversation with the bar staff (if they’re not too busy, Victor’s tends to draw a crowd most nights). No-one bats an eyelid if you’re in on your own, but, similarly, there’s plenty of love for big crowds here, too.

There are plenty of drinks to try, with a good selection of hops in bottles and on draught (most of which are on the lengthy daily happy hour, coming in at around Dhs28). There’s nothing out of the ordinary on the grape menu, but there are a fair few short drinks to check out and the option of some mixed drinks, if that’s more your thing.

Entertainment varies night by night. Wednesday is ladies’ night, which means three free drinks per person and karaoke. Live bands grace the stage regularly and DJs play most nights (as it gets towards midnight, the lights dim and the tunes are ramped up). You’ll also find bingo being played on a Monday (before retro hip-hop starts at around 10pm. It’s quite the heady mix).

This is also a brilliant place to come to watch sports, with loads of TVs dotted around including a couple of huge screens of incredible quality. You’ll find football from around the world as well as any other big sporting tournaments happening throughout the year.

There’s also a dart room that plays host to Abu Dhabi’s darts league, but also affords you the chance of a game if the boards are free.

Friday brunch is fairly new, but is a simple Dhs199 deal of three courses and unlimited drinks, with a band playing throughout the afternoon. Keep an eye on our brunch section for a review.

It has to be said that staff are excellent here, happy to help, make sure you know about the deals and are looked after during your time in the bar.

After two-and-a-bit years, Victor’s can be more than happy with it’s place in the Abu Dhabi nightlife scene. Here’s hoping there are many more to come.
