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 on the 27th floor of Burj al Arab is certainly a unique experience. Beautiful and one of a kind hotel, panoramic views, very polite and professional personel, and a menu consisting of numerous small dishes, which very effectively restricts your appetite for a dinner later on. Not cheap at all, though. Still worth it if you do not plan to do it often ...

Great bar budget a window table for the view! You have to eat in one of the hotel's restaurants to get a table in the bar so an expensive evening!

Excellent!!!!! Great variety of food and amazing views of Dubai. We had the most amazing time celebrating our honeymoon in Dubai by including this brunch in our itinerary. Definitely worth the price.

Enjoyed the view and some really nice cocktails, especially the Masquerade was delicious and prepared with detail. Interior colour scheme reminded me of 80’s but on the other hand local decoration style is colourful?

Service was professional and friendly, thank you!

On entering the restaurant the atmosphere was stunning, music playing and the views are out of this world.

I imagined the experience to be elegant but couldn’t believe however there was no dress code. Many people were not suitably dressed and many people in trainers! Unfortunately we were sat next to a very loud lady with no table manners and couldn’t enjoy the music due to her talking so loudly. The waiter noted my distress and promptly found us another table to sit without making a scene.

The décor of the restaurant seemed dated and not clean, the walls were marked and the toilets were dark and not fresh.

I imagine if they defined the star rating then I am not sure it would not be 7 stars.

Overall average experience for the price, certainly wouldn't be recommending or going again.
