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.”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

The entire thing was an experience because I don't think I could ever afford to stay in the hotel. The Skyview bar is the little bit of the hotel which juts out towards the sea at the very top of the hotel. It's a great afternoon tea with fantastic service and lovely views but sadly the food was not as good as you might find in some other hotels serving afternoon tea simply because they have such a huge number of people visiting and so the quality has dropped. Ergo the price which at the time was £80 per person is not in my opinion worth the visit.

“Luxury at its best”
Reviewed 26 July 2014

We had a fantastic time at Skyview bar. The view is amazing and the afternoon tea was just as good as the best afternoon tea we had in London. The waiter was very attentive and warm. It was Ramadan time so they couldn't serve alcohol during day time but the fig sparking drink we were served instead was extremely tasty. Highly recommend.

“Great location and atmosphere”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We went to the Skyview view bar on the last night of a holiday to Dubai with friends. This was a great experience and we all loved it.
The cocktails were beautifully presented, with a good selection to choose from. 'Nibbles' were included and made a nice touch. Attentive service, without being overbearing.

“Afternoon Tea at Burj Al Arab”
Reviewed 23 July 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!
