Me and my wife visited this place twice during our stay in Dubai. Firstly I need to say there are really good cocktails. It contains enough alcohol, tastes great and it's not too expensive (similar to Europe price). Separately I want to thank our waiter...More

From entering to leaving, this is an extremely poor brunch. The worst experience from a Brunch so far. Not a brunch but a set menu served to your table. Shades is not a restaurant but a pool bar. So you end up having a "brunch"...More

The best view in Dubai and, without doubt, the best service you’ll find anywhere! The food was also amazing - especially the wagyu beef burger. Thanks to all at Shades for a great evening

Perfect views over Dubai Marina. Nice lounge atmosphere and an infinity pool. Recommend to sit behind the pool which offers the best view

The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was
no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs
along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of
luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the
marina hosts regular community events and markets, and
is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or
evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers
glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next
