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 must-do experience in Dubai but expensive

If you like afternoon teas, Sky Tea at Burj Al Arab is a must experience when visiting Dubai. First, it is a great way to get into this famous building. Without an official business (eating or staying at the hotel), one is not allowed past the gate security. The service is top notch and the view... read more

The Skyview Lounge offers fabulous views - day and night - of Dubai. You definitely want a window table and this is easiest if you are a group of two or three. The lounge's list of cocktails is staggering with many very inventive creations. We tried the Mr. Big (vodka-based with cranberry juice and various fruit syrups), the Royal Rumble... More

Absolutely fantastic way to spend our first Christmas Eve married...so relaxing, great views and the food was excellent. Wonderful presentation of all teas & coffees. We stayed around to sample the bar atmosphere afterwards and could have stayed looking out at the Dubai lights all night.

Many others have written before me about this and all the positive comments I can endorse. Is it worth 150,-€ per person? In my opinion yes! The treatment is extraordinary, the food is superb and rich in quantity (no need for any dinner afterwards) plus it is a chance to go inside this famous hotel. We were considering staying there...

This was our second visit for afternoon tea in the Skyview Bar. The whole experience from arrival to departure is made so special. The service you receive is second to none. We booked well in advance for our party of 6, and were lucky enough to get a lovely table by the window. The waiters explained everything that came to... More
