Time Out Says

Going out on a Saturday night is a committed decision. But Iris Dubai’s Saturday Chill-Out Sessions makes the daunting idea a lot easier. The outdoor patio of this rooftop bar at The Oberoi Dubai in Business Bay embellishes the concept of al fresco dining, especially for an end-of-the-weekend evening.

While an unglamorous entrance through a maze-like car park is something you need to prepare yourself for, once you’re escorted to the 27th floor of the hotel, the mellow charm of this chic bar becomes particularly welcoming.

The session doesn’t actually begin until 8pm, and that’s when the bar starts to fill up with a crowd of twenty-something patrons. However, if you come before 7pm, you’ll be greeted with a cheese, bread and dips platter (sufficient for two), as an incentive for you to wait another hour until the live acoustic guitar session begins. The evening’s track list of Hello (Adele’s version), Wonderwall and Coldplay’s The Scientist will certainly encourage a singalong.

The drinks are all made from fresh ingredients by a talented roster of bar staff, and the menu includes restaurant-standard dishes, such as asparagus risotto and thyme-infused, corn-fed chicken, all cooked to perfection.

Such a welcome makes a Saturday night out here worth it.

The bottom line
A chilled night to ease you into the week.
