Time Out Says
Head here early evening and you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink at the large central bar indoors, or, in the cooler months, the picturesque terrace.
We’d suggest making a date here while the weather is pleasant, as the al fresco area is decked out in plenty of twinkling fairy lights, giving a moodily lit, charming vibe to the area. It also boasts views, albeit from a low level, across Dubai Marina, so it’s a top place for a spot of yacht-watching, too.
If you’re peckish, RÜYA is our Best MENA Restaurant 2018 and we highly recommend sampling some of the dishes – especially the egg and two-cheese pide. It’s truly wonderful and makes for a great accompaniment to a drink.
Don’t miss the inventive mixed drinks, which use a variety of ingredients including hibiscus, rose, pomegranate, honey, spices, citrus and mint.
RÜYA, which aptly translates as “dream” in Turkish, knows a thing or two about combining flavours and getting them spot on every time. This elegant bar should be on your list.
The bottom line
A chic spot that’s date-night worthy.
