A great perch, up on top of the Burj al Arab for afternoon tea. The whole experience is tightly controlled, and you are seated in the order that you check in, so plan to arrive early (15-20 minutes). Arguably, the best tables are the six that face downtown Dubai. Champagne and pastries were good, but roast beef was very overcooked... More

We stayed at the Burj el Arab for two nights which was a fabulous experience. One of the nights we had to wait until after 9.3-0pm to get in at the Skyview Bar with no guarantee of sitting at one of the window tables which offers a panoramic view of Dubai. We had asked earlier to sit there, but were... More

Went for our one night cocktail visit during our stay at the beach hotel as we always do. Even though it isn't cheap for drinks the ambience and views are always worth it. Fantastic tasting drinks, worth dressing up for and pretending to be someone famous!

Great chic bar for an outdoor rooftop experience. Chic, white, stylish, with great cocktails and an atmosphere to remember! Dj's tunes, and a view worth mentioning!
