On the 62:nd floor in one of the Etihad Towers just across Emirates Palace is one of the best sky bars I ever visited.

You get greeted by a beautiful hostess and given the round tour of the bar when arriving at the top floor bar.

Take your time and read all the stories about the historical drinks in the menu, it´s fantastic interesting read.

The prices for the drinks are stunningly moderate for what you get.

They have a business casual dress code, so skip the swimming pants.

Stopped for a drink here after dinner in Bice restaurant. View is spectacular and drinks hold up too. Service friendly and unobtrusive.

I visited this bar whilst staying the hotel, the drinks where lovely I would definitely recommend the '2nd most expensive' cocktail it was delicious and not actually that expensive the name comes from the vanilla in the drink!

We ordered some food here from the tapas menu we had some mini burgers and tempura chips which where nice enough to nibble on but not really as a big meal.

Music, atmosphere, view and drinks where great would definitely recommend!

This bar is situated on the 62 floor in the Etihad towers . The view from up there is incredible especially at night . Right across the street you have the Emirates Palace. A 7 star hotel in Abu Dhabi . You don't have to worry about parking because a valet will park your car . A lot of expats from big corporations are coming here . People we'll dressed and more mature . Is not a club in the real sense of the word . More like a bar were you can have a drink, enjoy the incredible view and listen to music ( house/ dance music ). If you want you can dance although people are more reserved here when it comes to dancing . The prices are not so different compared to the other bars and clubs in Abu Dhabi . Between 35-55 aed a beer depending on the name . A normal glass of vodka or wisely with orange juice or red bull between 50-70 aed.
In conclusion , this bar has more class and elegance and if you want to go out with your business partner who is visiting Abu Dhabi , this is the place .
