Came in here for the all you can eat Sushi night. Great sushi - only problem which I've found a couple of times in this bar is that its just too cold! The air-con is just freezing which is a shame as it makes me not want to go back even though they do great all you can eat sushi,... More

Nice bar for a drink after a long day. Good service and a DJ so not a typical hotel bar. Food was good as well so good place to meet colleagues or friends for a drink.

If your staying at the world's tallest hotel, chances are there's a restaurant or bar at the top. GQ is that bar. Very swanky. Drank champagne. Wait staff is very attentive. Smoking is allowed.
