Calabar Lounge is located in the Address Hotel Downtown (not to be mistaken for it's close neighbor, the Address Hotel- Dubai Mall a few hundred meters away). Calabar's outdoor terrace dwarf's the indoor space. Not surprising as it has marvelous views of the Burj Khalifa and surrounding areas. The outdoor area can seat a couple of hundred people on an...

Visited twice for happy hour, 6pm to 8pm, and loved it on both occasions. Half price drinks, fantastic tapas style snacks and chilled out music all while overlooking the fountains and Burj Khalifa make for a great evening.

Drinks are half off during Happy Hour and the view of the Burj Khalifa is nice. I noticed construction during my March 2014 visit, so the views of the fountain and the Burj were obscured. The staff is attentive and will getting your drinks ordered is not a big deal.

As a regular visitor to Calabar I can strongly recommend the indoor atmosphere and eclectic mix of the clientele - great for people watching while you down the half price drinks during the 6 to 8 daily happy hour. The food (bar snacks) is good but not great and quite pricey (no deal during happy hour). Outside is pleasant during... More

I visited the place in April 2013. The view is good of the fountains facing the lounge. All guests dressed in their best. I couldnt really understand why the place should be outstanding. It was OK. Service is slow. it took 25 - 30 minutes for our order to be delivered. Except for the view this place offers, I couldnt... More

This place is great, there is an indoor part which is made up of bar stools, small high tables and lots of people chatting away. There is an outdoor part made up of soft lounge music, candles and plenty of bean bags to lay on. This place could be 5* if the staff were a little more attentive and aware... More
