About McGettigan's JLT & The Baggot
2010 saw the very first McGettigan’s Irish Bar open its doors to great success in the trendy Jumeirah Lakes Towers neighbourhood in Dubai. Since opening McGettigan’s JLT’s popularity has grown from strength to strength, fast becoming a Dubai ‘institution’ and ‘home away from home’ for expats living and working in the city. McGettigan’s JLT is held in high regard as a surefire great night out for both visitors and residents alike. The bar is nestled beneath the elegant, 5 star Bonnington Hotel in Jumeirah Lake Towers and is just minutes walk from the metro and Dubai Marina pedestrian bridge.
Award-winning food and beverage is served daily from 12noon until late with a host of Dubai’s best bands and DJs performing on various nights each week. Many of Ireland’s top musicians, bands and comedians are flown into Dubai to perform live in a series of once off gigs throughout the year. Acts such as The Coronas, Aslan, Roisin O and Hermitage Green have all been over to peform in McGettigan’s JLT. Local comedy shows are also hosted regularly at ‘The Baggot’; a dedicated live entertainment venue situated within McGettigan’s JLT.
Another cracking event delivered by the McGettigans team, thank you for hosting a celebration of the Royal Wedding!
Booked the 2 for 1 Sunday Steak deal, and despite the sandstorm closing the grill, enjoyed a nice Sirloin and Rib-eye, for myself and my Wife. Both cooked perfectly. The Pork Belly Popcorn made a nice light sharing starter - very tasty. And as you would expect the Guiness was as Guiness should be in any good Irish Pub. Service was good and whole evening very enjoyable - keep up the good work.
Great value for money. Proper pub grub and beers kept flowing!
Absolutely excellent service and great fun place to be! A must visit spot for both Residents and Tourist alike. Best place in Dubai for live music.
Took family to Brunch last Friday during a very short long weekend trip to Dubai. I had told them of the great busy atmosphere and great live music at JLT . When we arrived we saw it was half empty and there was a DJ instead of the usual great performers. Food was satisfactory and drinks flowed well enough but overall feeling was one of disappointment.
Had a great day and loved the cake given for the birthday, thank you so much
Maximum fun on a weekday - thoroughly enjoyed musical bingo wings. Thank you for a fabulous evening
when i got to the venue my name was on the list however it said that I still owed the money for the brunch even though I had already paid in full when making the booking, it then took approximately 1 hour of discussions with the staff before this got resolved
A lovely low key and grounded place to visit for food, music, relaxing and fun kind of environment ... home away from home
Great time, our staff had a wonderful evening. Thank you to your bar staff who were very accommodating and lovely. See you next time.
The drinks and food are excellent! An amazing place to chill out after work!
Great service and value as ever - keep the quizzes coming!
Good service and happy hour till 8pm!
During the brunch the drinks were often forgotten by the staff and we had to remind them constantly that we were waiting for drinks. So service was terrible during brunch
My husband and I have been to several Friday brunches in Dubai, but this one was the best value for the money. The food (both buffet and made to order options) was quite good, and the service was great. We'll definitely be back on our next visit!
Great food,great service
Best Staff in Dubai :)
i went to the friday brunch. it is the best deal in dubai and i have done it many times. this week though the service wasnt as good. l also prefered it when they had the live band after brunch, the atmosphere was much better then.
Christmas dinner was the usual McGettigans first class standard.
Good christmas brunch. Some live music would of been good after.
Wonderful, thank you!
