Visiting rooftop bars has become one of the most popular thing to do in a big city. The view, the atmosphere and the fantastic pics you can take are only some of the benefits of a rooftop bar, compared to a regular bar. The Crew from The Rooftop Guide visited the best rooftop bars in Dubai last month, and here’s their list of the 5 favorites:
The Address Dubai Marina
A fantastic rooftop with one of the biggest and most luxurious rooftop swimming pools in all of Dubai. The terrace is only located at the 4th floor, but the view among the skyscrapers in the Dubai Marina is fantastic. The name of the bar/restaurant is Shades. Shades serves amazing cocktails and food to die for. The BBQ plate is something extra. Make sure to eat when visiting this place. The Address Dubai marina has it all – mighty views, tasty food, refreshing drinks, harmonious atmosphere, an infinity pool and attentive service.
Level 43 Sky Lounge at Four Points Hotel
From here you’ll get the best view in all of Dubai. In southwest you’ll get an absolutely amazing sunset view over the ocean, in southeast the mighty skyline of Downtown Dubai rises with the world’s highest building, Burj Khalifa right in the middle and to the north you have the old parts of Dubai. Except the topnotch view, Level 43 Sky Lounge provides the guests with a large terrace with lots of comfortable seating’s and a cocktail list with lots of different and unusual drinks. The atmosphere is solid with a live DJ playing tunes until the late hours.
Tomo Restaurant at Raffles Dubai
Located at bit outside of downtown Dubai you’ll find this gem. A superb Japanese restaurant with premium food in form of sushi, sashimi and other fantastic Asian flavors. From here you’ll also get one of the most iconic skyline views in the world. During nightfall, the city lights up in colorful spectacle which creates nice photo opportunities. The luxurious setting, super attentive and fast service along with the skyline view, makes this one of the best rooftop bars in Dubai. Make sure to book your table in advance, and dress neatly to fit in among the modern and hip clientele.
Pure Skylounge at Hilton
A rooftop bar with two terraces. One for the dinner guests and one smaller for lounge hangout. The lounge terrace has a great sunset view over the ocean and the Palms. Make sure to come here to see the sunset, as its magical. Maybe the best place in Dubai for a sunset view. The dinner terrace is bigger and can host up to 300 persons at the same time. Here you’ll have both ocean view and city view. The Friday sunset brunch is something extra here. Food, champagne and cocktails in a party atmosphere with one of the best sunset views in Dubai can’t go wrong.
This is the place to visit if you’re out for a fantastic party night. Like Pure Sky Lounge, Atelier M serves a wonderful sunset brunch on Fridays with drinks, food and party all night long. Make sure to book your table in advance. Trendy people comes here to party and enjoy the view. And what a view it is. Located at the 7th floor right in the middle of Dubai Marina, you’ll get a superb view among the skyscrapers overlooking the luxurious yachts in the water. It’s hard to find a more luxurious setting than this.
