Aesthetically, Treehouse doesn’t have to try all that hard, considering the unobstructed view of Burj Khalifa dominating the skyline.
“Divided” into four key strips of space, it is not the biggest, but it has been maximised intelligently, and even on the busier nights it never feels like a jostle for position. In keeping with the name, the area is surrounded by trees and dotted with shrubbery.
Low-set sofas line the outside at a right angle from the far corner (these areas can be booked), while casual seating fills a space between the grassy back of the bar and inside. Up front, the bar is set above a beautifully ornate carving, and against a mirror, creating the illusion of space. Vast dark art pieces are perched at either end. A selection of comfortable high-tables complete the look.
The drinks menu is a refined selection of extravagantly named concoctions featuring ingredients like blue cheese, beetroot and rhubarb shrub, paprika, truffle and aged balsamic vinegar, thankfully not all at the same time.
At the weekend, a DJ provides the soundtrack, while midweek, the vibe is more couples and small groups enjoying a chilled-out evening under the stars. The bottom line Terrific new addition offering something for everyone whatever the occasion.
