About
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.

It's worth going once just to experience the hotel and see the views (if you're lucky!).
We were happy to pay the minimum spend of AED300 per person which equates to approx 2 cocktails and some water. The drinks were nice and came with nuts and olives but there's not a lot of options for food if you have intolerances.
In the evening it's actually difficult to properly see out of the window or get a decent photo due to the reflection of the lights inside. We were fortunate enough to get a window seat but if you don't get one you're not likely to see much.
One small grumble is that the website and booking confirmation state a dress code (men in collared shirts etc) but it didn't seem to apply to those who appear to have plenty of money.
Overall a nice experience, glad to have done it once.

Expensive but tasty. I was surprised by how long it took to get drinks, but overall it was a good experience. Despite the fact that every regular cab takes credit card, the Burj Al Arab will put you in a cash-only car that costs twice as much as a typical cab, so be sure to double check!

We had reservations for 6:30pm and planned to spend a couple of hours before going to dinner.
Since we arrived at the opening hours we were seated at a window. The view was spectacular. The only downer was the menu had all classic cocktails. We would have preferred a little exotic. Dont get me wrong, all our drinks were really good and worth the visit.
Tejas, was very much on top of his act and helped make our visit Memorable.
Since I had mentioned we were celebrating our Anniversary, he served us a really delicious chocolate cake too.
The ambience and service is what u pay for.

Would highly recommend.

This was a very dissatisfying visit. Even though you can't pick or book a table near the window in advance, there are certain tables which were booked up front. I've asked in 2 or 3 occasions how this is possible, and why I can't have the tables they have "strongly recommended" to be arranged especially for this occasion - the staff replied it was because of corona or something similar that makes no sense at all.

Anyway, the service in this place is poor. I remember Skyview Burj to be a special experience before, which is a far shot from that today. It takes time to get the drinks ordered or refilled, the waiters seem to be uninterested. The tables are too small for the tasting menu (4 people per table) and the drinks/glasses, it all gets messy and hectic. All in all, this is definitely a place you don't want to be at for your special occasion today. Dubai has to offer much much more at different locations, and unfortunately Burj al Arab at Skyview has lost that vibe it had in the past.

Service and the whole experience was a great thing, even for this place it is a bit overpriced.

But when ever you have the chance in Dubai and the “change in your pocket” book a visit and enjoy the feeling and the view.

For me, I was the second time there and the look doesn’t change, some things are old and looks badly used. There are no investments for the sky view bar the last 2-3 years.

Me and my best friend went to High tea on Feb 16, 2020 at 1pm. It was a very bad experience for me as I got sick after eating the sandwich’s and ended up in the bathroom due to stomach issues. We had to leave right away and didn’t finish high tea courses.
What’s even more disheartening is I reached out to Sky View bar twice to explain what happened, it’s been over a week and there has been no response.
I would not recommend this high tea establishment to anyone.

Visited few weeks ago on a special occasion however left disappointed. The atmosphere is nice if you get to get a table with a view as there are limited tables window side. The variety of drinks is very large however it needs more variety of snacks and desserts. We had difficulties to find a bite as we always enjoy some food with the drinks. At the end I decided on a dessert (options very limited) and the portion of it was literally tiny. The worst of everything was the service unfortunately. The waitress was not much friendly and smily. Made me feel not much welcome. I appreciate the rose given to as my partner has mentioned the special occasion while making the booking.

This was the second time my husband and I have visited Skyview bar for afternoon tea. This time on our baby moon - the staff were great and very accommodating to my dietary requirements being pregnant......also had a delicious mocktail!

Food & service was fantastic, made a very special afternoon for us. Will hopefully be back in again!

Went for afternoon tea at the 4.15pm seating. It was expensive but worth it. The views from this bar are fab. All the staff were very nice and explained everything to us in detail on the afternoon tea menu. All food items served were delicious and we didn't leave hungry. Definitely want to do this experience again next time I'm in Dubai.
