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.

In order to gain access to the iconic Burj Al Arab, one must have a reservation at one of the restaurants or bars. At AED 560 per person, this was very expensive for what turned out to be a standard high tea menu of average quality. There are scones and sandwiches and cakes. Not bad, but not particularly great either. I'm quite sure everyone there was a tourist.

It was more like paying for a ticket to get inside the hotel. I imagine it must have been quite impressive when it opened in 1999, but in my opinion its ostentatiously opulent design with big blocks of gold and bright colours now looks rather dated.

In hindsight, I don’t think it was worth all the fuss and expense to visit it. But if someone had told me that before I’d seen it for myself, I’m not sure I’d have listened. So people who really want to go will probably still go.

The hotel looks better from the outside. For a good view of it with an elegant chilled out bar, I'd recommend the balcony of the Bahri Bar at the Mina A’Salam hotel in Madinat Jumeirah.

What an experience....worth every penny (pounds).Book directly via email before you travel.The sky bar views are amazing and the staff are so into making your experience unforgettable. Afterwards you can sit in the hotel and watch the world go but whilst serenaded by a quartet.

Best part of trip with memorable photos.

Reservation is a must, otherwise its not allowed to entry to the Burj Al Arab Hotel. Come by taxi and get out the taxi at the security gate. The AMAZING view of the hotel will be burnt in your mind chip…
The bar is in the top of the hotel, overlooking the sea, but - if the visibility is O.K. - you can see the most beautiful night (Dubai) city view of the planet.
There is an entry fee but you can use it to cover the bill at the end. The prices are not low, but it is normal here, but take care it is not a "robbery", you can get high level service for your money.

Great views and superb cocktails. It was rather windy the night we visited and they provided us with pashminas to keep the chills away - very thoughtful......
