Skyview Bar @ Burj Al Arab


The bar is found 200 meters above sea level so you can be guaranteed a fantastic view in extraordinary surroundings, a main goal for tourists or residents of Dubai is to actually say they have been in the Burj Al Arab, which is Dubai’s iconic building that is seen all over the world seen either on the news in the papers or on the internet. Located at one end of the long cantilevered wing atop of this iconic hotel and the views are spectacular.

Trying to get in by just walking off the street is nearly impossible, book first to guarantee entry into the most intriguing and elusive building in Dubai. If you do get in then strong cocktails are obligatory.

The staff at the Burj Al Arab treat everyone as millionaires as they don’t know any different from the many that pass through here so that is the given standards that they portray and put into practise, Afternoon tea is available each day with the exception of Fridays and even that is recommended to book in advance, this could be classed as an alternative to tea at Claridges or the Ritz in London with an array of different sandwich fillings, a selection of pastries and petit fours and about 50 types of specialised teas and coffees.

The bar takes on a more cosmopolitan vibe at night and is the destination for the well-heeled party set and diners looking for a sophisticated pre dinner drink.  The best views can be found during the day.

As always with this hotel the decor is not always to everyones liking, but then again you don’t come to this bar for the decor; you come for the kudos of being at the Burj Al Arab and to take in the breathtaking views of the Gulf, Palm & World Islands whilst sipping on some of the finest cocktails, Champaign and fine liquors to be found anywhere in the world.
