Makar Scottish Bar in Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Waterfront

The Makar Scottish Bar is a great place to unwind and enjoy a delicious meal or some hard classic Scottish drinks. Located at the P1 level of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Dubai Waterfront, this bar features traditional Scottish drinks. This was where we had our dinner during our overnight stay in the hotel.

I adore the design of this room, which has antique furniture and lots of traditional Scottish decorations. It features a masculine vibe with dark woods and plaids, much like a den.

The drinks menu features a wide range of Scottish whiskies, as well as other traditional drinks such as whisky sours and cocktails.

Restaurant Review: Makar Dubai in Business Bay

We initially wondered where Makar was, given that the P1 lobby was spacious and bright, and contrasts with the dim atmosphere of the bar. But we soon found it, snuggled away to the right of the lobby.

The Scottish pub is decorated with paintings, leather sofas, and a fully-stocked bar. Flat-screen TVs are placed throughout the bar, so you can catch up on the latest sports games while enjoying your drink.

Classic Whisky Cocktails

My wife and I ordered a round of their classic whisky cocktails. I had their popular Cigar-Smoke Old Fashioned, while my wife had the Manhattan. Both of these drinks were quite strong and flavourful.

For those not looking for something so strong, they have some classic cocktails available. We ordered a Classic Espresso Martini and a Cosmopolitan.

Main Course

We had a Rib-eye Steak and Fish & Mushy Pea Pie for our main course. The chargrilled steak was cooked perfectly to our liking and was very tender. The Fish & Mushy Pea Pie was interesting as we haven’t eaten something like it before.

As we enjoyed the drinks more, we opted to just have one dessert which was a Sticky Toffee Pudding. This was served with vanilla ice cream. It was very rich and sweet, but went well with our drinks.
