Now that November is here, Dubai’s weather is at its best: with an average high of 31°C and low of 19°C (the latter usually at night), the temperature is the nicest it’s been since mid-April. To us, that means it’s finally time to enjoy a few al-fresco drinks on terraces around town.

The sun currently sets at 5.40pm (it will only be 10 minutes earlier than this by the end of the year) so you may have to leave work a little early to watch it set, but many of our favourite rooftop bars are just as inviting after dark. In a bid to inspire you over the coming week, we’ve revisited some oft-forgotten favourites and unearthed some hidden gems, as well as introducing the new – if not strictly ‘rooftop’ – Siddartha Lounge.
