Would you like to know where the best lounge bars are in Dubai? Dubai is not only known for its many cafés and colossal shopping malls.
It also has excellent nightlife, with something for everyone. Like me, you might prefer the ambiance of a lounge bar to the loud rucked of a club.
Fortunately, Dubai has no shortage of beautiful and stylish lounge bars. While there are too many lounge bars to visit in one trip,
I believe you will make some unforgettable memories by visiting one or two of the lounge bars in Dubai on this list.
1. BLU Dubai
BLU Bar is my number one lounge to visit in Dubai. This is a multi-level bar with a lounge area on one level and a club on the other.
In addition to getting served delicious drinks and fascinating cocktails you may never have heard of, BLU also offers excellent music in the club area.
If you want to experience more than one facet of Dubai’s nightlife, BLU is the perfect place to start. This upper-class lounge has a beautiful aesthetic and polished finish and will transport you to a new world.
BLU is the ultimate introduction to Dubai’s nightlife and keeps you entertained.

This Office is not a place you go to for business, but relaxation. The Office is an elite lounge bar that offers exceptional cocktails and premium drinks.

The Office attracts a different crowd than other lounge bars on this list. This lounge bar will surely give you a unique experience at a premium price. You must book a table to visit the Office, and I recommend getting a VIP pass if you want to treat yourself.

Clap is a Japanese-inspired restaurant with a lounge area fit for kings. This lounge overlooks Dubai’s financial center and will make you feel like you are dining in the sky.
While Clap is less of a bar and more of a restaurant, the atmosphere and scenery of this spot led me to add it to the list.
Clap’s idea is to order a selection of authentic Japanese snacks from the menu, get your favorite drink, and soak up the Dubai financial center skyline.
The setting and décor of Clap will make you feel as if you have entered an alternate dimension, and the food and drinks will make you want to stay there forever.

Although Biggles Pub has a vastly different atmosphere than most of the other lounge bars mentioned in this list, the WWII aviation memorabilia is something to admire, especially if you aren’t from the UK.
I wouldn’t head to Biggles for an evening of slow music and cocktails. However, if you’re craving a beer on tap and a decent pub lunch, Biggles is the place for you. You may also get to watch a football game while you’re there.

Although Barasti is technically more a beach bar rather than a lounge bar, I cannot give you my list of the best bars to visit without including it. Barasti isn’t nearly as fancy or high-class as the other lounge bars.
However, this is one of the most famous beach bars in Dubai.
Barasti offers excellent value for money on their cocktails and food, and you’re sure to have a great time soaking up the party vibe at this bar.
In addition, you don’t pay an entry fee for Barasti, making this a more affordable option than many other bars on this list.
However, don’t think Barasti gives you any less of a unique experience. Barasti is definitely a place to visit when you have some spare time.

18. The Penthouse
Lounge bar by day and nightclub after dark, the Penthouse is the perfect way to end my list of the best lounge bars in Dubai.
The Penthouse has comfortable leather couches where you can sit and enjoy your expertly mixed drink while appreciating the sunset over the Dubai Marina and downtown city skyline.
You can choose something from the mouth-watering Japanese menu if you feel hungry.
Finally, if you’re in the mood for a party, stick around until the sun has set. Then, you will see how the Penthouse changes into a bustling nightclub with in-house and guest DJs bringing the lounge bar to life.
