Mood Rooftop Lounge

Newish rooftop lounge at Meydan

Time Out Says

We’re spoilt for choice when it comes to super rooftop bars here in Dubai, but that doesn’t stop us dashing to check out the newest openings as soon as we can – as who can resist a sky-high view of this super city?

And one of the latest lounges to grace the scene is at Meydan – the massive party hotspot that just keeps on growing.

Mood Rooftop Lounge is housed at The Meydan Hotel, just behind the Soho Garden complex that’s such a hit with Dubai’s party crowd.

The first challenge is finding it, however, as it’s actually accessed through the grandstand of the racecourse rather than via the hotel lobby.

Once you’ve arrived you’re greeted with neon puns and plenty of on-trend foliage for those now all-important Insta snaps.

The adults-only lounge has a massive outdoor area with an exotic garden, shisha lounge and 180-degree views of Downtown Dubai. And that’s the main selling point – the vistas are absolutely spectacular. And because the bar opens at 6pm – unlike late-night neighbour WHITE Dubai – you can head down in time for a sundowner, too.

Service is on the slow side, even though the venue isn’t packed on our visit, though we’d hope that will improve once the venue has been open longer.

The décor is super-cool – comfy couches, raised areas for prime viewing, a bar tucked away at the back and there’s a DJ booth front and centre, plus live music regularly, including from Jay Abo.

And there’s a second draw for the party crowd – this bar is open all the way through until 6am if you fancy a sunriser, too.

With so much competition in the area Mood has its work cut out, but for the views and décor this is a cool new place to check out this weekend.
