The jewel atop Dubai’s Four Seasons hotel, Mercury Lounge is a smart rooftop bar/restaurant that boasts spectacular views of the city skyline and the Burj Khalifa on one side, and the Arabian Gulf on the other. This is a spot for glamorous relaxation, whether you’re dining or just looking to sip cocktails and soak up the Cote d’Azur vibes. Exclusive majlises (seating areas) in the lounge are ideal for VIPs or private dining, while the seats around the bar are great for immersing yourself in the lively atmosphere.
Mercury Lounge seamlessly melds gastronomic influences from across the Mediterranean, so you’ll find a wide variety of sharing plates, light entrees and heartier main dishes to see you through the evening. High-class crudos include oysters, caviar and beef tartare, while similarly sumptuous starter plates include foie gras, homemade merguez, fritto misto and wagyu beef sliders. Main dishes might take the form of saffron spaghetti vongole, veal tenderloin or whole lobster thermidor, or something from the healthy corner such as artigiana burrata or quinoa salad.
Groups taking advantage of Mercury Lounge’s convivial environs might like to order a couple of sharing plates for the table, perhaps wagyu beef ‘cote de boeuf’, Moroccan corn-fed baby chicken or mixed grilled seafood, with a side of parmesan and truffle French fries. Whatever the vibe, you can be sure of top-notch food to go with the premium drinks served up at the bar.
Mercury Lounge also boasts a couple of special nights: Wednesday night is ‘Ladies’ Night’, which is worth two complimentary glasses of prosecco to women who attend between 8pm and 10pm; and Thursday night is ‘Gourmet Night’, when visitors can take advantage of a dinner package accompanied by live entertainment. Looking to visit on a weekend? Don’t worry – every night here is aperitivo night!
