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.

“Afternoon Tea at Burj Al Arab”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

When my friend and I booked a short visit to Dubai, on the top of our list was a visit to the iconic Burj Al Arab for afternoon tea.

Wow, what a view! The bar overlooks the turquoise Arabian Gulf and the Dubai skyline, 27 floors below. In addition to the incredible view, the food was wonderful too. A glass of sparkling date juice to begin (it was Ramadan, so champagne was not being served), followed by dates, strawberry shortbread, a slice of roast beef with puréed potatoes (not very 'afternoon tea', but delicious all the same), cute little sandwiches, cakes and scones, and finally a lychee and rose sorbet. The quantity was immense; the quality exceptional. After the tea we were each presented with a little box of petits fours to take away.

The staff were wonderful. Very attentive and professional and contributed to making the experience one I will remember forever.

Thank you Burj Al Arab - you are awesome!

“Lovely sky bar”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

I had drinks in this bar on a recent visit to Dubai, it's a really modern, clean bar. The service is outstanding and there is a wide range of cocktails to choose from. We went after 8 so we didn't really see much in the way of a view however if you are in Dubai you have to visit the Burj and this is a great way to spend an evening.

“Shaken not stirred”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2014

The cocktail bar is like being on the star ship enterprise, just amazing drinks mixed and served to perfection. Little nibble trays in the shape of the Burj Al Arab are served with delightful tasting treats!

“High Tea in the Skybar - a "must do" in Dubai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

The high tea in the Skybar on 27th Floor was a fabulous experience. The building and view is spectacular, the service is excellent and the food and drinks were fantastic and plentiful, could not eat it all. Probably the highlight of our 3 day visit to Dubai
