Head up to the 40th floor of The H Dubai for stunning views across Downtown Dubai from this stylish bar. If you’ve got out-of-town visitors in tow, this is a particularly good choice. The bar has a contemporary design, with high tables and bar stools for those dining, and comfy lounge seating for those looking to chill out with some beverages. The central design focus of the venue is a huge modern white tree with curly branches, which adds to the visual impact of this sophisticated open-air bar. Its location makes it a popular spot among nearby office workers, so making a reservation is advisable to avoid disappointment at the door. A drinks menu of innovative mixes awaits, while the international cuisine leans towards Asian flavours with dishes such as chicken teriyaki and shrimp tempura. You’ll find the staff here are polite, jovial and accommodating, even when things go awry. The most common problem you’ll encounter here is the slow delivery of food and drinks. But the bar is lively and as the evening draws on there’s some dancing amid the tables, making this is a spot better for those seeking drinks and bar nibbles rather than a full on meal. Whatever the occasion, however, it’s hard not to enjoy the view and al fresco ambience.
