Due to the relative conservatism of the UAE, most of Dubai’s bars and clubs are confined to hotels. However, down in various hotel basements, or up on their rooftops, you will find venues as stylish and glamorous as anything in cosmopolitan Europe. All the venues we highlight here feature something unique and exciting, making them well worth visiting.
Your journey up to the 27th floor takes place in a rapid panoramic lift. Once there, however, the mood takes a slower pace. Enjoy afternoon tea or evening cocktails while admiring a privileged view of Dubai and the Arabian Gulf, and the bar’s experienced mixologists can custom make any cocktail to suit your taste and mood. Try a signature cocktail like the Eyes Looking At Heaven, very fitting 650ft up in the air, and look out over the city from floor-to-ceiling windows.
