This lush rooftop bar sits on top of The Oberoi Dubai and in the early evening the height affords a regal view of downtown. The space opens up from inside onto a large terrace, with wooden panel flooring, urban lighting designs and glass windows reminiscent of a greenhouse but with the minimalist look of a warehouse. The trendy venue has plants and flowers scattered throughout and a range of high-top tables. The menu offers traditional pub classics with a fancy twist, including dishes such as Angus mini truffle burgers and aubergine tartine. Other options include seared bluefin tuna and an attractive range of salads featuring ingredients such as lentils, crab and quinoa.
Open Sat-Wed 6pm-2am, Thu-Fri 6pm-3am (last orders for food: 1am). The Oberoi Dubai, Business Bay (056 951 1442).
