Pulse

When we heard on the grapevine that the Bur Dubai space formerly known as scruffy sports and live music bar Jimmy Dix had reopened as Pulse, we expected to find a similar drinking venue in its place. What we discovered couldn’t be more different. Pulse is a club that consists of a huge DJ booth with a roster that seems to support female DJs (a woman was spinning the night we visited, and DJ Gina is lined up for next Thursday), with two bar areas divided by a dancefloor. Two sets of large black leather padded doors greet you, along with a couple of burly bouncers. Indeed, the overall decor is black with sparkle: black tables (largely reserved, although empty at 10pm), black couches and black floor with low-hanging chandeliers, those big poles with what look like liquid gold floating inside them and, of course, heartbeat monitor ‘pulse’ lines across glass dividers. Service is efficient and fairly friendly, the drinks menu quirky with ‘Toxic’ mixed drinks (including the Bullfrog), while we recommend ‘The King’ (three mini burgers) on the snacks menu. In short, if you’re looking for a straight-up club with a leaning towards deep house, race to Pulse.
