Quench your thirst at our lavish hideaway on top of the world. Soaring 200 metres above sea level, we do things differently on the 27th floor.From modern day classics to innovative cocktails, our master mixologists go to great lengths to seek out inspiration, drawing influence from the most unexpected places.The result is an eclectic drinks list that uses unique ingredients and inventive methods to create your cocktail, with each recipe closely guarded to ensure our menu is one of a kind. The views are no less exclusive; catch your reflection in the glittering lights of the Dubai skyline as you gaze out through floor to ceiling windows that surround the bar.The space inside Skyview has been designed for intimate conversations, and a rotating line-up of live music ensures the sights and sounds are as impressive as the beverages we shake up. Here, creating cocktails really is an art form.

A drink in the ultimate bar high in the sky!

Were staying at the Burj Al Arab for a brief visit recently. It is somewhat of a tradition to pop up to the Skyview Bar late in the evening +/- 11pm and enjoy the ambiance and a cocktail of sorts. It's nice to see the bar still in immaculately kept condition. There are signs of wear and tear... read more

We booked a table for drinks at the skyview bar while in Dubai as a treat. It was quite expensive with a minimum spend of 350 AED per person however it is something we said we have to experience as we probably won't ever be back there! The view was amazing and the service was excellent. The live jazz style... More

What to say...it's a place for luxury, which doesn't always correspond exactly to quality...but that's part of the game, everybody going there is or must be aware of it. But, instead of having an absurd, exclusive, private waiter, for probably the world's most expensive aperitif -which I don't mind-, wouldn't it be better to invest in creating an atmosphere that...

We visited on a Thursday afternoon for tea. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we never had an empty glass or teacup. The food was good and there were so many choices for sandwiches, desserts and tea. While it is expensive, it's worth a visit when in Dubai.

More like a 7 course meal than tea. Views, service and hotel justify the stars. Staff most helpful and couldn't do enough and make you feel special. Taking photos not a problem with reasonably relaxed dress code.. Worth dressing up though. Excellent value for money. If you have an anniversary they make it more special!

Booked the afternoon tea here, and was extremely underwhelmed. The Burj Al Arab is not a 7 star hotel, that is a self-proclaimed title that in my opinion it does not live up to. If you are up there during a sandstorm or foggy afternoon you will be "sol" because there will be very limited visibility. In my opinion the... More

Fantastic view especially at night. Pre booking is essential and there is a minimum spend. BUT well worth it. Canapés excellent and let them know if it's a special occasion it's a treat chocolate cake and roses. Dress up and feel the elegance of the place. A visit to the loo is a must everything gold from the loo role... More

Unbelievable views, the very best service, relaxation, the fact that if you can't afford to stay there, you can say you have been there. Chance in a lifetime and if going to Dubai, put this on your list.
