Though the Burj Al Arab itself is a little gaudy on the inside (the slightly lurid and flashy interior is totally at odds with the beautiful exterior architecture), the Skyview bar is an amazing place to go for sunset drinks and it's an experience you shouldn't miss out on when staying in Dubai (that said, it took me two years...

The entire thing was an experience because I don't think I could ever afford to stay in the hotel. The Skyview bar is the little bit of the hotel which juts out towards the sea at the very top of the hotel. It's a great afternoon tea with fantastic service and lovely views but sadly the food was not as... More

We had a fantastic time at Skyview bar. The view is amazing and the afternoon tea was just as good as the best afternoon tea we had in London. The waiter was very attentive and warm. It was Ramadan time so they couldn't serve alcohol during day time but the fig sparking drink we were served instead was extremely tasty.... More

We went to the Skyview view bar on the last night of a holiday to Dubai with friends. This was a great experience and we all loved it. The cocktails were beautifully presented, with a good selection to choose from. 'Nibbles' were included and made a nice touch. Attentive service, without being overbearing.

When my friend and I booked a short visit to Dubai, on the top of our list was a visit to the iconic Burj Al Arab for afternoon tea. Wow, what a view! The bar overlooks the turquoise Arabian Gulf and the Dubai skyline, 27 floors below. In addition to the incredible view, the food was wonderful too. A glass... More

I had drinks in this bar on a recent visit to Dubai, it's a really modern, clean bar. The service is outstanding and there is a wide range of cocktails to choose from. We went after 8 so we didn't really see much in the way of a view however if you are in Dubai you have to visit the... More

The cocktail bar is like being on the star ship enterprise, just amazing drinks mixed and served to perfection. Little nibble trays in the shape of the Burj Al Arab are served with delightful tasting treats!
