Sponsored: Welcome to ‘Vampire Tides’…

Halloween is just days away and whilst it might fall on a Sunday this year, there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate it over the weekend. You can count on popular beach bar and nightlife venue, Barasti, to celebrate it in style.

On Friday, October 29, Barasti is transforming into a spooky place of scares and thrills with decorations, fun games, a live DJ and some brilliant drinks promotions. You’re invited to dress up and don your most Halloween-appropriate outfit. Entry is free.


Barasti is known for its out-there decorations, whether its for its summer tent and promotions, football, Christmas and, of course, Halloween. There will be something to see in every corner, from pumpkins to spiders’ webs and more creepy sights – and not just from the people rolling in from brunch.

As well as music spun live by DJs, the Chilli Jam band will also play. Participate in fun games and photo booth installations for those memorable Halloween pictures. If you come to Barasti anytime from now through Friday, and you find a Golden Bat, you could win a table for ten with two bottles of house spirits included.

Drinks promotions from a popular rum brand will be on all day, and there’s even going to be a special drinks named ‘Witches Brew’ or ‘Vampire Tides’ priced at Dhs22. A tray of six ‘Dracula’s Blood’ shots will be priced at Dhs150.

Barasti has long remained one of the city’s most popular venues for its laidback approach to socials. Whether you’re visiting for a (free) beach day, watching the live sports or heading there after brunch, you’re always in for a good time.
