This is one of the iconic bars in Dubai, especially at this time of year. Indoor area and outdoor area. Outdoors puts you in expansive and casual chic bar and restaurant, at the foot of the Burj Khalifa, which from any angle is one of the world's most spectacular towers, but from Calabar, at night, is truly sensational. The food... More

Inside and out this place is very visually beautiful, the service was great and arriving at happy hour before going up to Neos on the 63rd floor this place is great to get any night started.

Great place to go for an after-work drink (especially during Happy Hour). Great atmosphere and a chance to see fellow expats or other passers by. At this time of year, sitting outside on the terrace is devine.

Headed out for a friends birthday and we didn't book but scored a fantastic lounge to seat 12 of us. Outside was too busy but eventually around 10.30 we got a table outside. The view is great and the Espresso Martini's are awesome. If you want a table guaranteed I would recommend booking in advance.I thought the service was fantastic,... More

Great view, great food, great atmosphere outside. Only thing letting it down was service. They were seriously short staffed.....well I hope they were and it isn't normally like this. Am definitely going back. By the way the tapas dishes are not small in portion which was lovely and the quality was high.

Visited last week and really enjoyed it,would certainly recommend to others.We didn't eat here but the drinks were nice and reasonably priced during happy hour at least!.Couldn't see the fountains from our table but it wasn't a problem as we were going upstairs to Neos later anyway.Dress code was more liberal than I was led to believe but it was...

Lovely place with a beautiful balcony overlooking the dubai bay. We were recommended to go there so we can see the dubai fountain. But this terrace doesn't really overlook the fountains. It's pretty blocked views so not recommended if that's the purpose for going. Otherwise, wonderful place

Its good. Great bar, awesome hotel, interior is excellent, food is really good. Service sucks. Happy hour has a good crowd. Service sucks. Do i really need to order 3 times and wait 30 minutes to get a drink. And a drink with attitude. Tax free dream. Could have been an 8/10 Drops to a 5.
