Description: Where do you go for a stunning cocktail that comes with jaw-dropping views over the magnificent city lights of Dubai? Uptown Bar. Its elevated terrace, super stylish interior and soulful beats make it the place to be. In-house mixologists create designer drinks with a twist, using molecular know-how to produce cocktails that smoke and more. There’s a menu of simple and delicious South American tapas to nibble on, while you soak up the atmosphere.For those who enjoy smoking, a choice selection of Cuban cigars is available to enjoy on the terrace.

Great place for a happy hour drink with guests. The Burj Al Arab is in the background, giving you a great photo opportunity. Drinks are a bit pricier, but happy hour prices are fair. Bar snacks are good as well. Sit outside on a comfortable couch or a high table overlooking the balcony. This is always on my list for visitors- and should be on yours too!

Been coming to this bar since 2007. Amazing views over the sea, inland and the Burj al Arab. Waitress service and they remembered what drinks we drank from the year before!! A great bar to start off at before going out for a meal, slightly on the expensive side but I guess you are paying for the surroundings. Slightly disappointed that when you order a 'Jack and Coke' it comes with Pepsi but apart from that it's always 100%.

Dear Paul,

First of all I would like to thank you for your visiting us so often!

We do remember and acknowledge our regulars and try to make them feel as cozy as possible with personal and intuitive service, it is good to see that we are appreciated for it!

We do have a great and popular Happy Hour program that runs every Saturday to Wednesday from 6 pm to 8 pm with a selection of drinks at 50% off and theme nights throughout the weeks that offers greater value for our guests.

Looking forward to having you back with us again1

Best regards,
Sebastian Dinescu

How can you describe an open roof top bar in Dubai looking over the Burj Al Arab and the WHOLE city? I don't think you can. If you're in Dubai, get over here and take a look for yourself. It's breathtaking.
