The Best Cocktail Bars in Dubai 

Dubai is a smorgasbord for fancy cocktail bars, but which ones are actually worth a visit?

Here’s our guide to the best cocktail bars to enjoy with your high-class escort in Dubai.


If it’s ambiance you want, Zuma should be your first port of call. It’s compact, and with the best resident DJ located here, you can be sure it attracts an A-list crowd. Located in DIFC, you can choose to dine here if you like sushi, but the Zuma cocktail with its spherical branded ice cube is the star of the show. 


Another popular destination that’s known for its phenomenal cocktails is Coya. You’ll find this bar hidden away in the Four Seasons hotel. It serves a whole host of classic Peruvian cocktails with a backdrop that is inspired by the Amazonian rainforest. Order the savoury Forbidden Apple cocktail if you are feeling adventurous. 


Another fabulous destination for cocktails in Dubai, Shimmers is the perfect location for sundowners. From your table on the beach, you can watch as the sun sets and watch the Burj Al Arab light up after dark. Oh and it’s part of the Jumeirah Mina A’Salam, one of the most spectacular hotels in Dubai should you wish to book a suite. 

The Burj Khalifa 

Where better to enjoy a cocktail than 122 floors up at the Burj Khalifa? Atmosphere is the tallest bar in the world. You can enjoy incredible views from your window seat. The cocktail menu is extensive with impressive and creative concoctions to enjoy. You enter through the Armani Hotel and get a lift up to the cocktail bar that has the floor to ceiling windows for your viewing pleasure. Book a spot for sunset. 

Buddha Bar

This iconic venue is a popular nightlife hotspot and is known for being a majestic location with a live saxophone player providing the perfect ambience. This establishment is located in the heart of Dubai’s marina, and from your seat, you get 360-degree views. This bar is perfect if you want a lively night out and is the best place to end the celebrations before heading back to your hotel suite.
