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.

This is a beautiful example of what Arabia is today. Dubai, and its extension into Jumeirah is the world's showpiece of modern architecture, and the iconic, sale shaped Burj Al Arab is the most impressive building they have.

Situated at the top of Bruj Al Arab, this SkyView Bar is one of the best places I have ever been to. You view the amazing blue sea while you take a sip of your drink (Little Bliss is my fav in here). Far beyond the words i can explain to this place!!

Well there is a lot of luxury going around in Dubai but Burj Al Arab and its many outlets takes it to a whole other level.

Needless to mention that is a very nice experience to visit in general Burj Al Arab, and to enjoy the nice view from Skyview bar. But when you been requested to have a minimum amount to spend (about 90 euros) per person, you should reconsider it! If money is not an issue for you, go ahead. But food and drink... More
