“Must Visit This Bar”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

Very nice place to stay for a great cocktail in Abu Dhabi. The bar offers delicious signiture cocktails and also tasty sandwiches. Just the smoke from cigarette irritated me there. We had a perfect service from handsome guy named Martin, he was really great whole night long.
This bar in Corniche is worth it to visi for sure!

“Great cocktails !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2014

I liked this bar, due to it's large selection of drinks and of course free nibbles! They have seats at the bar, in the open areas and small booth seats too. It has a nice ambiance and the drinks are strong! They have a happy hour from 8-10, which is always a good start to the night :) The bar is on the 62nd floor, so you can watch the sun set and cast your eyes over the city and Emirates Palace hotel. Try the tempura fries too ! :)

“Great spot - just lacking atmosphere”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2014

Great place to go and have a view over Abu Dhabi when sipping a cocktail. Views are very good and the service and drinks selection were good too. Just a little soulless I'm afraid - maybe we were unlucky...seems everyone had the same idea as us: to watch the sunset with a nice drink, as it emptied out a bit after that. Maybe it livens up later.
