Inspired by the fun and atmosphere of European ski resorts, Après is a sophisticated lounge, bar and restaurant that embodies Alpine ski-lodge chic. This bespoke outlet is specifically tailored to suit its stunning setting at the foot of Ski Dubai's indoor slopes within the hugely popular Mall of the Emirates.Après' is not just renowned for its deliciously addictive cocktails as Après' array of fresh, contemporary European cuisine never fails to impress. Its small but authentic selection of stone fired pizzas is ranked by many reviewers as the best in Dubai, and the traditional Swiss cheese fondue continues to be a perennial favourite.Après' amazing location and simply irresistible cocktails, coupled with its warm service and striking interior, makes for a truly unique and unforgettable experience in the Middle East.

Luscious Sangria with Amazing View

It's a sophisticated lounge, serving authentic wood fired pizzas and delicious Sangria. It's a awesome place to go with your loved one spend some amazing time, sipping cocktails with its views overlooking ski slopes. Try to grab a table close to the window, it will take you to the snow of Alps.

Having a drink while watching snow outside in ski dubai, and all this in the heart of the one the UAE biggest mall, i went many times to do shopping in the mall and I always ended up having some beers here. The only thing that I don't like about the place sometimes it is very cold.

we went here 7 years ago when the mall of the emirates was pretty new and the idea of sitting eating dinner and drinking wine overlooking a ski slope sounded pretty special ... 7 years ago the food was great but in 2015 it was awful ... it smelt of stale cigarette smoke - apparently you can smoke one side...

Not really fancy place but fine if you are about to have some drinks only. I totally didn't like the pizza they have. Probably it is a bar and place to drink but better they do not have those pizzas at all :D

Went the first time for lunch...absolutely no atmosphere at all. Not enough staff, and the food was appalling (chicken schnitzel). The food was bland, the waiter seemed to be on another planet and grumpy. Couldn't wait to leave (after I had pestered for my change!) I had to return the next night though as an invitation from a friend.....so thought... More

In terms of location this place is great. Wonderful views into Ski-Dubai and away from the horrific noise of the food hall. The food we found a bit hit and miss: we had some lovely pasta but also a very average burger. We would still return though and try something different as the location is worth it. Service though needs... More
