5 Oldest Bars And Pubs In Dubai That Are Worth A Try!

As we have all heard that Old is Gold, so the oldest bars and pubs in Dubai. Well, in Dubai, any organisation working for more than 20 years considers Old. Bars in Dubai are evidence that Dubai has the best nightlife in the Arab world. There are sports pubs in Dubai where you may drink your favourite alcoholic beverage while watching live soccer and cricket events. Moreover, there are pubs in Dubai with decor that evokes the best of London or Ireland and a superb selection of beverages. Here is the list of the best Oldest Bars And Pubs In Dubai that are worth a try to feel nostalgic! 

1. Biggles Pub 

Biggles Pub, which has been open for more than two decades, is based on a fictitious pilot called Biggles and is located near Dubai International Airport. With tonnes of Air Force memorabilia adorning the large space, its appeal may seem somewhat specialised, but a nice assortment of brews and pricing, live music, and sports coverage make it a good bar.
