We review The Bunglow beach bar in La Mer, Dubai, and had a fun-filled evening of food (read: Tacos), gaming and a good overall experience.
The Bungalow isn’t your average beach bar. They take pride in their backyard vibe with a seaside twist. It’s the kind of place you could have a fun gathering with your buds or a cozy romantic evening with your date. Bungalow seems to be an apt location for pretty much anything.
Though we had specifically gone to the establishment to devour their signature tacos, it was evident everyone was there just to have a great time. Friendly staff, stellar decor and did I mention they have a ton of arcade games and a pool table?. A little part of me died from the inside when I saw ‘Pac-Man’ in its original retro set-up.
But what really caught my eye was how close proximity the bar was to the beach. The sound of the waves while you munch on some delicious lip-smacking tacos is something one really has to experience.
The Food and Beverages
‘Taco Tuesdays’ is all stuffing yourself with all-you-can-eat tacos comprising of Fish, Beef and Chicken stuffings. The tacos are just about the right size and with the unlimited advantage, I managed to eat about 12 tacos myself with my colleagues eating about 9-10 each.
Packed in flavors, each taco was unique with its own twist.
To top that, you’ve got unlimited jugs of margaritas and their signature bungalow brews.
Who doesn’t love live music? With performances by local and upcoming artists like Big Mouth and DJ Bungalow Bill, you can pretty much expect yourself to be grooving to some banger beats. Tables and seating arrangements are quite widespread so you shouldn’t find it too difficult to find one on a busy night.
Plenty of heaters around to keep you warm during Dubai’s cold winters. The arcade was my favorite part of the venue and so was the live music.
Definitely AG approved. Prices are incredibly reasonable for Dubai standards and you really do get what you pay for. The tacos were great but it’s always the overall experience that matters which ‘Bungalow’ really seems to have nailed.
Pro tip: Visit at least 30-45 minutes before the sunset so that you get a nice view of the beautiful and trendy La Mer development from atop The Bunglow.
Priced at AED 99 per person for all-you-can eat tacos and unlimited jugs of margaritas & bungalow brew, do check the place out and we hope you too get that out of the world beach bar experience!
