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.

Had drinks and snacks there for our anniversary, what nice location and atmosphere is over the top, service is incredible, but it is expensive, but worth, it our bar bill was $500, but we were in the bar for 5 hours,

Though the Burj Al Arab itself is a little gaudy on the inside (the slightly lurid and flashy interior is totally at odds with the beautiful exterior architecture), the Skyview bar is an amazing place to go for sunset drinks and it's an experience you shouldn't miss out on when staying in Dubai (that said, it took me two years of living there before I finally made the trip!)

The view is stunning, particularly for the last hour of daylight, and obviously the bar's location floating above the waters of the Gulf is the main attraction.
The service is impeccable, as you would expect, and the staff were incredibly polite, friendly, and attentive (without being overbearing). Our waiter gave great recommendations and between four of us we managed to try seven or eight different kinds of cocktails and all of them were lovely, though some of the alcohol-free drinks were more like slushies than beverages.
Canapés were provided at our table, beautifully presented in a Burj-style tiered platter, and dutifully kept topped up throughout the evening.
All in all a great experience, though I would probably stick to going there for afternoon tea or cocktails rather than a full dinner.

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.

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.
