“Amazing Views”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

Great views from the 62nd floor and fun atmosphere. Check out the neat sinks in the bathrooms. I liked the individual rooms for a small group to enjoy.

“Amazing views from an amazing bar”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

We visited this bar twice while in Abu Dhabi and loved it. From entering the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers we were made to feel so welcome and this continued at Ray's Bar.

We went quite early (around 8pm) while the bar was still quiet so were lucky enough to get seats by the window looking out over Abu Dhabi. The music in there was great and the drinks even better. My wife had a number of different signature cocktails which were very reasonably priced considering the setting. I had some lovely Lebanese beer.

The spicy popcorn that is provided is also superb.

Would highly recommend Ray's bar as the place to drink in Abu Dhabi

“A bar with a view”
Reviewed December 23, 2012

Definately attracts the young and the trendy and rightfully so....Magnificent views of Abu Dhabi from the 62nd Floor. Private booths available for the bigger parties and then overly comfortable couches where you can sip your cocktails and be mesmerized by the thousands of lights of Abu Dhabi! The chairs in the rest of the bar lacks the feeling of luxury and "being spoilt" A harsh difference from the booths and the couches - so make sure you get a seat at the windows or book a booth! Delicious cocktails and it is reasonably priced. Food which is mainly snacks I thought was hugely disappointing. We ordered the spicy tempura prawns and the dim sum platter - more than half the food were returned. The prawns were drenched in oil and no sign of the light fluffy batter that resembles an excellent tempura. The whisky list is minimalistic, I would have expected a much larger variety but at least they have the 15yr Pappy von Winkle on the list at a steep AED135 per shot! Would I visit the bar again....for cocktails - most definately.....for food/snacks - nope! there are far better places to enjoy a snack in Abu Dhabi

The cocktail menu was great, the service was fantastic, but it's the views that are the the reason to come here.
