Stars 'n' Bars

We paid our first visit to Stars 'n' Bars this evening and it was great. This American style sports bar and restaurant is located at the Yas Marina. They had a good choice of food at reasonable prices and as the venue is not part of a hotel there are no extra taxes to pay (would be at extra 16% in Abu Dhabi and 20% in Dubai). Caroline chose from the cocktail menu a couple of frozen Mohitos, but as I was driving I stuck with Coke and coffee. I was tempted to order off the shots menu, but I was concerned about getting arrested for asking for "Blow job" for 30Dhs from the waitress!

We sat outside (trying to make the most of the good weather while it lasts) on the shisha terrace so I could indulge. The "shisha man" was great and made all sorts of creations out of the foil on the top bowl> This is what I got, with added "garnish" of mint!

All in all we had a good time and will definitely return - it would make a great night out with a group of friends.
