We stopped in here on our way to dinner for an aperitif. They have a good drink menu and the views were great. Only downside is that smoking is aloud.

A decent bar with good views of Abu Dhabi, Ray's has an extensive drinks menu and the bar food was excellent.

However, it is let down by some frosty service that creates the impression you are not particularly welcome. The view isn't particularly 'photographable' due to serious glare from all the lights (a bit over-styled, like many establishments in Abu Dhabi). Also relatively expensive, but nothing you wouldn't expect from a bar with a view above a five star hotel - so hardly something anyone can complain about! Worth going for the view, but you are unlikely to buy a second drink.

Fantastic, high altitude views of the Arabian Gulf and cityscape of Abu Dhabi with almost 360 deg views. Extensive cocktail menu with exquisite wines on offer along with Asian influenced tapas menu and live DJ on certain evenings. Very sophisticated signature bar and lounge at the Jumeirah at Etihad Towers Hotel

Great view. However you have to lean against the window pane to overcome the glare. The interior lighting needs some serious adjustment and be dimmed down substantially to be in the league of the world's top sky bars. The menu and the prices are at international level, the cheapest glass of wine sets you back 45 dirhams plus/plus which is ok if you just wish to experience the 400 feet view of Abu Dhabi. A mixture of seating arrangements and bars allow to accommodate a diverse crowd. Go later in the evening to mix with the hip crowd...

Situated on the 64th floor of the Ethiad Tower this bar opens in the evening time. To me it redefined opulence, the modern surroundings and comfortable seating and table arrangements are amongst the most unusual that I have ever seen. There are excellent views of Abu Dhabi at night particularly on the Eastern side. They served a varied drinks range with excellent cocktails and a number of guests relaxed with fine Cuban cigars without offending their fellow customers. All in all a truly fantastic experience
