“49'ERS-FOR THE GREYING......”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 July 2014

electric-eclectic-controlled-----three words that summarises the experience.
what gets to me is that we dont feel we are in teeny boppers pub but somewhere you dont need to apoligize that your greying and balding and you look like a dad and grand dad to most as what is seen in most pubs and watering holes....
so comfort factor----perfect...
the music is contemporary and the grooves are wild...not too loud and not too intrusive....
liquor is by no chance cheap but one is not there to drink one silly....its networking and an experience...escorts leave you alone if you wish to be alone...
the food is good but a tad expensive...expected in a place like this which offers so much entertainment...
and while it sits well for the patron...it offers little variety from the escorts as they too are aging like the patrons while the patrons want a variety for all tastes...
if you r a foreigner one needs an identity and proper pass....best is to take a local and use only the taxi service....dont attempt to drive in and out...it aint worth the effort....

“Sorry.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Sorry. Not again. Crowded badly with smoke and drunk and ladies wore different than others. Not much cocktails only beers and spirits. Not for ladies and gentlemen.

“Good steaks. Notorious knocking shop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

49ers do good steaks in their non-smoking restaurant with views over tourist club. Pretty good value too. Quick and good service although the restaurant is in need of some updating. Good to be able to order liquor with the steak yet still pay a sensible price (rare in AD).

It amuses me that so few here have posted about the main part of 49ers, the bar. It takes up 80% of the space. I live in AD and everyone knows it is pick up joint filled to the rafters with "ladies of the night". If you are in the restaurant they will leave you alone.

If you go at the weekend be prepared for the bar area (which you walk thru) and elevators to the penthouse level to be v busy. At the door men have to explain they are dining or there's an admission fee at weekends.

“Great steak”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014 via mobile

The tenderloin was cooked to perfection with pepper sauce. Pretty good value for the area. We got a free bottle of wine for ordering 2 meals.

The bar is casual and relaxing... Interesting place for people watching as there are some late night meeting and greeting activities going on!
