Along with Rodeo Drive and Fibber Magee’s, The Stables somehow stands alone, outside of a hotel, behind the Sheikh Zayed Road. Once you get to it, it’s up until some stairs and into the pub, which is decked out in horse racing paraphernalia. It’s spacious, with plenty of tables, booths and stools at the bar. Music can be a little eclectic and there are plenty of screens showing sports, including football from around the world and racing, of course. There is a decent selection of hops and grape and some mixed beverages, with a very good happy hour and ladies’ night prices. It’s not the plushest place in town, but it makes up for that in character and good value.
