Time Out Says

It may not be the fanciest hotel in Dubai, but Festival City’s Crowne Plaza has one of its most popular bars, in the form of Belgian Beer Café. We wouldn’t be surprised, then, if this new opening was a way for the hotel to take the strain off the BBC.

But that doesn’t make SKYYline inferior to its sister. While its huge space doesn’t have the charm of the BBC, and its beer selection is nowhere near as wide (it’s dedicated to Skyy vodka, after all), it’s an excellent place to lounge about on the whopping white sofas or red hammocks while watching the sun set on the Burj. Its massive size also makes it an ideal rendezvous spot for large groups.

Service is excellent and the staff mix up a mean cocktail, but we do wonder how well the small bar will hold up when the place is utterly heaving. We’re still looking forward to finding out over the coming year, though.
