Description: Quench your thirst at our lavish hideaway on top of the world. Soaring 200 metres above sea level, we do things differently on the 27th floor.From modern day classics to innovative cocktails, our master mixologists go to great lengths to seek out inspiration, drawing influence from the most unexpected places.The result is an eclectic drinks list that uses unique ingredients and inventive methods to create your cocktail, with each recipe closely guarded to ensure our menu is one of a kind. The views are no less exclusive; catch your reflection in the glittering lights of the Dubai skyline as you gaze out through floor to ceiling windows that surround the bar.The space inside Skyview has been designed for intimate conversations, and a rotating line-up of live music ensures the sights and sounds are as impressive as the beverages we shake up. Here, creating cocktails really is an art form.

Reviewed December 6, 2013

Nice fine dining restaurant, though not the best food for the price you pay, but combined with the ocean views and a bit futuristic decor it is worth visiting once in a while. Make sure you good a seat with a nice view.

“Expensive...but worth it!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

My husband and I have visited the Sky View Bar in the Burj al Arab 3 times now for afternoon tea and it's been a delight each time. The service is always excellent and the food always delicious, plus you can just keep asking for extra of whatever you want. We went at about 1.00pm for afternoon tea and left about 4.00 stuffed to the gills and didn't need anything else to eat for the rest of the day. Definitely worth a visit.

“Depends what you want”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

The Skybar is either an expensive lookout deck over the ocean, or the height of sophistication.
Better idea: go to the Mina A'Salaam hotel bar and get the view including the ocean and the Burj! Cheaper and somehow more impressive.

“High tea with a view”
Reviewed December 4, 2013

Visited the Burj al Arab with friends and we have had an excellent high tea with a outstanding view! We were lucky that the airshow came by during our high tea, that was really a bonus! It was our second time that we have enjoyed the high tea in the Skyview Bar and we hope to come again...

“Like something out of a sci fi movie”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Slightly disconcerting lift ride to the top, but then what views! Great atmosphere and not rushed at all. Another expensive Burj experience, but once again, worth the treat
