Cosy bar overlooking Ski Dubai
  • 1

Time Out Says

A pint overlooking the snowy slopes? In the desert? If you’re looking for a taste of the Alps, while in the middle of a shopping centre, visit Après.

This bar is set above Ski Dubai and is the closest you’ll get to the snow-topped peaks without going  on a skiing holiday.

Admittedly the bar itself is a little on the shabby side, and it feels a tad like a cafeteria due to the harsh overhead lighting, however, if you score a table by the massive windows then you’ll feel a world away from the busy shops of Mall of the Emirates.

Watch as snowboarders and skiiers swish impressively down the slopes (or tumble in some instances) while you sip on your mixed drink and catch up with your mates.

There’s also a central area, which usually is busy and buzzing with chatter.

Drinks aren’t cheap, but if you visit during happy hour from 4pm until 7pm and again from 10pm until midnight then you’ll get 30 percent off.

Fancy a bite to eat? Don’t miss the fondue. With teeny potatoes and crusty bread ready to dunk, it’s the perfect warming dish (even in summer when its 40 degrees outside).

Whether it’s apres-ski or apres-shop there are few better things than a glass of bubbly and a pot of molten Swiss cheese.
