The 15 tallest bars in Dubai
For when you’re looking for a side of insta-worthy views with your wine…
Warning, this list isn’t for those with vertigo.
However if you’re looking to enjoy a tipple in one of the city’s tallest bars, you’re in luck – because we’ve found them.
Whether it’s 122 storeys high, or a mere 43 (we wouldn’t like to walk the stairs down from either, to be honest), here are 15 Dubai bars you can find at least 40 levels high.
At.mosphere: Level 122
The world’s tallest restaurant and lounge, you’ll find yourself 122 floors high when you enjoy a drink at At.mosphere. But you’ll pay a premium for the privilege – signature cocktails start from Dhs100. Alternatively, make a reservation on their Tuesday ladies’ night, where free flowing drinks from 9pm to midnight starts from Dhs200. The sought-after window tables are first come, first served, so we’d recommend getting in early.
Level 122, Burj Khalifa, Downtown Dubai, Dubai, daily 7am to 2am. Tel: (04) 888 3828. Atmosphereburjkhalifa.com
Zeta 77: Level 77
There is nowhere better to grab a cocktail and enjoy a delicious meal all while wistfully gazing out into the skyline than at Address Beach Resort’s ZETA Seventy Seven. Situated atop the ultimate beach address overlooking the incredible Ain Dubai and adjacent to one of the world’s tallest outdoor infinity pools, ZETA Seventy Seven, offers a carefully crafted contemporary Asian menu designed by chef Ruediger Lurz.
ZETA Seventy Seven, Address Beach Resort, JBR, restaurant opens daily from 11am to 1am (last orders at 11.30pm). Over 21s only. Tel: (0)4 8798866. @addressbeachresort.
Privilege: Level 75
This rooftop venue atop SLS Dubai serves many a purpose. By day, it’s home to a duo of infinity pools for tan topping to a soundtrack of chilled sets that build to livelier tunes as the sun sets. After dark, Privilege is a swanky lounge and nightclub with 360 views of Dubai in a location that takes the party scene in Dubai to a whole new level.
Privilege, SLS Dubai, Sunday to Wednesday, 7pm to 3am daily. Tel: (0)5 499 18120. slsdubai.com
Highest View Lounge: Level 75

Okay, so it’s technically a lounge not a bar, since it’s located in a dry hotel. But, Gevora’s Highest View Lounge is definitely one that lives up to its name. Found in the bright gold building on Sheikh Zayed Road, it has an illuminating crown which is (probably) brighter than the sun. You can go for afternoon tea at sunset, priced at Dhs138 for two and enjoy the panoramic views.
