Above rooftop bar, located in the Sofitel hotel in downtown Dubai, promises an exclusive and exciting experience for your next evening out. Located on the 5th floor, the Above lounge is semi-outdoor boasting state-of-the-art sliding windows and ceiling to allow for a good time whatever the weather. The view is perhaps the star of the show, revealing the Burj Khalifa just in front and panoramic views of downtown Dubai, both particularly impressive at night. Seamlessly transitioning from day to night, the lounge has a funky laid-back atmosphere, evolving into a lively affair once the resident and guest DJs get on the decks.
In terms of food and drink, you are absolutely spoilt for choice with the extensive international menu. Kick off the evening with some tasty gyoza or nachos then indulge in a wagyu filet mignon or grilled salmon. There is also a selection of sushi on offer, from the classic California maki to the signature ‘Above’ specials which allow you a taste of all the different sushi rolls. The drinks menu is equally impressive, with a whole range of options to suit your style of evening. If you really want to get the party started, splurge on the Don Julio 1942 or the single malt whiskey, or for a classy affair treat yourself to a bottle of Dom Perignon. To complement your beverage, there are over 50 flavours of shisha to choose from, such as blueberry mint, sweet melon and sour pineapple.
From light bites and cocktails to a three-course dinner, Above rooftop bar has plenty to offer, all complemented of course with a stunning view. Be sure to keep up to date with what special events are occurring, the belly dancing shows and ladies’ nights definitely make for an evening of entertainment.
