Nice views over beach. Very smokey inside when there are a lot of people in so if you are a non smoker it's best to sit on the terrace. There is a dress code so you need to be mindful of that

I was fortunate enough to get a private tour of the bar. The name does the actual views no justice. Just gazing out at the marina, the beaches and the Palm Jumeirah in the distance, made me not want to leave. The decor definitely matches the view by bringing in colors from the ocean and surrounding outdoor environment. It almost... More

Yes you feel like you are doing something special as a treat. You have to reserve and there is minimum spend of 350 durhams unless you are eating at one of the restaurants. We were not next to the best views but having been to Marriott observatory deck beforehand with spectacular view of palm did not mind. You easily spend... More

With a minimum spend of 350 AED per person (around £75), it is not somewhere to 'pop in' but the views and service are amazing.

Visited Skyview Bar @ Burj Al Arab for high tea. Had pre-booked as no walk in allowed. You should get there early, as 1st come will get best view. We got there 20 mins early. Amazing views of the coastline, would recommend a SLR camera if you have. Keep your tummy empty, as you have many courses and every item... More

A Friend recommended a visit to the Skyview Bar on our visit to Dubai. A rather expensive experience but well worth the price tag. The food and drink were excellent and the view by the window was gorgeous. I would recommend booking the 415pm slot and enjoy the meal while watching the sunset.

This is a small bar but works OK. Not ideal but will do for a quick drink on route. I prefer the bar/restaurant on the first level .The bar staff are quick and helpful but this bar is basic.
