Amazing rooftop bars in Dubai hotels


These are unusual times and things can change quickly. Check out the latest travel tips before you make your trip. Our writer visited some of these hotels before the pandemic.

WWith a skyline as dazzling as that of Dubai, rooftop bars are in demand. At 830 meters – twice the height of the Empire State Building – the tallest building in the world, Burj Khalifa, can be seen for miles. But the downtown panorama is not Dubai’s only picture-postcard panorama. While some soaring bars overlook the emirate’s iconic cityscape, others overlook the glistening Arabian Sea, the traditional wooden dhow filled with Dubai Creek or the man-made phenomenon Palm Jumeirah, an island of 5.6 km long tree-shaped. With Ain Dubai, the world’s largest Ferris wheel now adding to the emirate’s superlatives, there is even more to watch.

LookUp Rooftop Bar, La Ville Hotel & Suites

The towering La Ville building occupies the end of a block of City Walk, a trendy residential and commercial district lined with bars, restaurants, lesser-known boutiques and street art. The days end as well as they begin here. Take a spin class around the rooftop infinity pool (the star attraction), then cool off with a dip, soaking up the distracting Dubai skyline, before enjoying breakfast in the green courtyard. In the evening, the LookUp rooftop bar, wrapped around the pool, is the perfect spot for cocktails, shisha, and sunset swims. Don’t miss happy hour (1pm-7pm) when drinks selected are AED 30 (£ 6) – or for AED 299 (£ 60), the three-hour Dip in the Dark experience includes unlimited drinks.
