From free-flowing drinks to a traditional Italian aperitivo…

Looking to catch-up with friends or wind down from the weekday in a stunning setting? Look no further than these sundowner deals. From unlimited drinks on the terrace of a beautiful Italian eatery, to happy hour beverages overlooking bobbing yachts, we know the places to go for stunning sunset sips.

Here are five fabulous sundowner deals to sip the sunset in Dubai.

Bar du Port

A boho-chic bar in Dubai Harbour, we love Bar du Port for its roster of lively ladies’ nights, party brunches, and retro nights. But if you’re looking for something a little more chilled, the BDP sunsets, served up daily except Saturday are the perfect way to toast to the end of the day. Available from 4pm to 7pm, you can sip your favourite spirits for Dhs20, while draught beer and wine is priced at Dhs30.

Bar du Port, Dubai Harbour, off Dubai Marina, 4pm to 7pm, Sunday to Friday, from Dhs20. Tel: (0)4 332 4868. barduportdubai.com
