There’s no better place to relax than a lounge bar where fruity cocktails, tasty shisha and a laid back atmosphere are just some of the components to make up a great one.
Here we take you through the top 10 lounge bars in Dubai in 2017….
Always a favourite for when you’ve got visitors in town, the views and laid back beats from the DJ are why there is no question this spot makes our list year on year.
Part of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel, if you’re lucky a golf buggy will take you along on the wooden stretch to bring you out to the bar.
9. Sun& Dubai
For a chill afternoon in the sun, look no further than Sun & Dubai. This waterfront location, which overlooks some of the huge Palm mansions, is perfect for relaxed sundowners. With with great happy hour deals from 5-10pm most days of the week, you can go no wrong here.
8. 40 Kong
This huge rooftop bar located at the H is an architecture’s dream, perfect for sunset drinks and little bites, it’s also an ideal after brunch spot when the DJ arrives and ensures you won’t leave till the wee hours.
Noir at the Kempinski is a nightspot with terrace that overlooks the Sheikh Zayed Road. A busy spot throughout the weekend (a Thursday ladies night always brings in a crowd) the outside terrace is a relaxed, comfortable city lounge where a big screen plays old school black and white movies, as long as you’re early enough to nab yourself a seat.
6. Beach Lounge
For a sand-in-your-toes beach bar, this is the one to hit. It’s located on the beach (did you guess?!) beneath the Burj Al Arab and is part of the Jumeirah Beach Hotel complex. On Mondays they do a free flowing bubbly ladies night, so for the ladies this is one of the more affordable spots to hit.
This open-air Business Bay bar with Burj Khalifa views is absolutely stunning despite the fact that the closest it gets to a treehouse are the couple of trees littered throughout. Perfect for brunch, sundowners or a night on the tiles, once summer hits, the bar is covered so you can still visit then too.
4. Siddharta Lounge
Shut most of last year for renovations, the new look at Siddharta Lounge at Grosvenor House guaranteed it’s place on our list again this year. Feast on Mediterranean munch, devour the cocktails and smoke all of the shisha, this is the bar you’ll take your visitors too…again and again.
Despite the fact it only had it’s grand opening just two weeks ago, as soon as you visit and discover this DIFC gem you’ll completely understand the high ranking. Bali-esque decor, a varied bites menu at very un-DIFC prices and a shisha menu that goes beyond the norm…this is the bar to watch for 2017.
2. Luna Sky Bar
Another DIFC spot that was sure to make out list, Luna Sky Bar at the Four Seasons serves up the cities best cocktails with some amazing views to boot.
Aperitivo time from 5-8pm is perfect for afterwork drinks if you’re in the area.
1. Jetty Lounge at the One & Only Royal Mirage
A list of lounges in Dubai wouldn’t be complete without the Jetty Lounge; part of the incredible One&Only Mirage on the Palm.
The sophisticated beach bar is the number one spot on a honeymooners bucket list and it’s easy to see why with the chic Arabian design and pristine sandy beaches. This spot is an absolute gem, but you’ll have to visit for yourself to find out.
