“View and mocktails”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

probably my wife's favourite place because of the view. It's just amazing. Their mocktails were also excellent and so were the cocktails. Highly recommend.

“Great night, great place, great staff, stunning view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

We stayed at the Towers for two nights, planning to have a couple of drinks in Rays bar before heading out for the rest of the night....well, we didn't get further than here, we didn't need to or want to. The place is cool, chic, superbly decorated and furnished and staffed by great people, special mention to Martin who catered for our every need and genuinely made us feel special. He even organised us some Champagne flutes for the room which was over and above service....On the subject of service, the service was slick, waiting time minimal and the view...well what would you expect from the 62nd floor? We loved it, left there very late and very happy (drunk), you must visit here if you are staying at the Towers.

“Cool place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 June 2014

Fantastic Moscow Mules at this place. Expensive but not outrageous. Our drinks were 54 dhs/ea ($14) before ++.

Brighter than I expected which makes it hard to see or get any pics out the windows with the reflection but still a great place to have a few cocktails with friends. Lounge beats in the background (our DJ played sax along with his beats) along with wonderful service made for a pleasant, relaxing evening.

The complimentary popcorn at the bar has some weird seasoning on it and is highly addictive.

Definitely heading back to Ray's on my next AD visit.

“A drink with a view”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Rays Bar is free to visit. We visited twice, the first time the bar was quiet and we could walk round easily enjoying the views while having a drink and some complimentary nibbles. The second time was in the evening and the bar was quite full, it is not a very large bar and it would have been more difficult looking through all the windows without disturbing other people. It was still a very enjoyable experience.
