The highlight of this bar is the view. Al Grissino is based in Emirates Financial Towers in DIFC and the bar occupies the section that juts out the side of one of the towers, behind the bar is a window that takes up the entire wall. It looks out towards Downtown, with the Burj Khalifa in one direction and Sheikh Zayed Road in the other. It’s a bar like no other in Dubai, so it’s a shame it seems so quiet. Perhaps most people don’t think to come if they’re not visiting the (excellent) Italian restaurant it’s attached to, but they should. Inside, the ceiling is populated with a fresco of a sky, complete with fluffy clouds. On the drinks menu there are bottled hops (nothing out of the ordinary) a good selection of grape and some house mixed beverages. Worth visiting for the setting as much as the drinks.
