Rooftop cocktail bars to try in Dubai
As the weekend rolls in making the most of the cooler temperatures by joining us at one of these laidback cocktail spots in Dubai, where you can enjoy a happy hour apéritif while soaking up the city skyline in all its glittering glory.
Vantage Bar in Dubai
You’ll be hard-pressed to find a better spot for sundowners with a view in central Dubai than at Vantage. This rooftop cocktail bar inside Sheraton Dubai Mall of the Emirates Hotel boasts a wide vista of the emirate’s iconic skyline.
Grab a stool inside at the bar to catch the mixologists in action or take to a comfy sofa on the al-fresco terrace where you can smoke shisha as the sun sets.
You’ll find all of the classic cocktails listed on the menu, along with more different pours and fine grapes. If you get peckish, nibble on a plate of delicious light bites, such as the tempura prawns or chicken tikka sliders.
W XYZ Bar in Dubai at City Centre Deira
Set inside Aloft City Centre Deira, a new design-led hotel, W XYZ Bar is one of the region’s top hangouts in Old Dubai, largely thanks to the generous daily drinks deals and incredible panoramic view of the city, which spans from Downtown Dubai’s towering skyscrapers to the Creek.
Grab a seat on the terrace to make the most of the views and unwind to the beat of smooth tunes from the in-house DJ every Wednesday, or catch the live band on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Azure Pool Lounge in Dubai
Sitting high on the top floor of the Hotel Pullman Dubai Creek City Centre, Azure Pool Lounge is the perfect place to kick back and let the stress of week melt away.
As you sink into a plush cabana, sip on freshly-shaken cocktails and order sharing platters of tasty tapas, mezzeh and antipasti while taking in the expansive view of the city.
