Gently lit with olde-worlde Arabic-themed lanterns by night and bathed in glorious sunshine by day, Bahri Bar is one of the city’s pricier, swankier drinking spots, where even the amber beverages are a decadent affair, arriving in what can only be described as oversized bubbly flutes. If you can tear your eyes away from your drink, there are plenty of photo opportunities to be had in the shadow of the nearby Burj Al Arab.
When to go: Sunset on the weekend.
