Enjoy a martini 200 metres above sea level at Dubai’s Jumeirah Skyview Bar

If we could put one bar on our bucket list, it would be Dubai’s Jumeirah Skyview Bar. Not only does the Skyview Bar give you amazing views of downtown Dubai, but it’s located on the 27th floor of the Burj Al Arab – meaning, you’re literally on top of the world while you’re here.

This is the ultimate place for a gals’ night out (if you didn’t guess already), with an eclectic array of entertainment put on for guests throughout the week. Love soothing piano music as you’re sipping an artisan cocktail? Lounge here during the day. A fan of jazz? Come during the evening, where a jazz trio lights up the night with their relaxing tunes.

And whatever you do, don’t miss the beautiful sunset over the Persian Gulf, 27 stories above. It really is a sight to behold. The Skyview Bar is conveniently located in Burj Al Arab (the hotel that looks like a wind sail), which is directly on the beach. Dubai’s weather is always glorious – warm in the summer and milder in the winter – so make a point of visiting the entire area while you’re here.

And while you’re in the mood, don’t forget to check out these other exciting bars of Dubai…

Grab your gals and head out to the Buddha Bar for an evening of pure indulgence. This bar is right in the heart of the Dubai marina and inside Grosvenor House. Here, you’ll meet new friends, dine on fine food, sip cocktails, and relax in one of the most spectacularly designed bars in the city.

 40 Kong

With Dubai’s perfect weather, you might as well take advantage of the outdoors – 40 floors up – at 40 Kong. This rooftop bar is one of Dubai’s best hotspots for an evening out and offers a wide selection of signature cocktails and snacks to get the night started. Don’t forget your camera – you’ll take some of the best photos in Dubai at this bar!

Warehouse, Dubai

Don’t be fooled by the name – Warehouse has made a reputation for itself as one of the hippest places to be spotted in Dubai. The bar is located in Le Meridien Hotel and Conference Centre and is massive, housing four bars, two restaurants, a sushi bar, wine cellar, entertainment lounge, and – best of all – a beer garden, so you can relax in the warmth of the Dubai sun while sipping your cocktails. Come with the gals on Ladies Night every Monday and Tuesday to be treated like royalty with free Mojitos.
