“Amazing atmosphere and view”
Reviewed January 13, 2014

Great place to take visitors to UAE because of the view. Staff are amazing and make beautiful cocktails. Not as pretentious as Dubai 'i.e. no booking/no table rule' with staff ready to accommodate. Visited here a few times, would like to see more of a music scene or special events with DJS to truly make it down there more often.

“Great Night View of AbuDhabi”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Been there after dinner in Bice the view was spectacular. The ambience was very opulent with a bullish view design. to my surprise , they served chines beer.

The music was just right for the place and we could still have a conversation easily. even though it was not a weekend night , the place was so much alive and almost full.

A must do when you are in Etihad Tower especially in the evening.

“great view and tasty drinks”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

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.

“Not worth any hype”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

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.
