I would like to introduce you to the new series – Best bars and cocktails in Dubai by Arturas

My name is Arturas Dzeikas, and I am one of the concierge’s at the wonderful Burg Al Arab. I am passionate cocktail fan and amateur bartender. I have visited the best Dubai bars and tasting their signature cocktails. My goal is to show the world the delicious cocktails on my travels as concierge.


One of my recent visits was at Iris bar in Oberoi Hotel. Located in a heart of the downtown Dubai, in front of world’s tallest building – Burj Khalifa, it’s a perfect place to watch a sunset while enjoying expertly crafted cocktail. Dubai is a diverse place where the world of flavours collide.

Located on the 27th floor of The Oberoi, Dubai, this open air restaurant offers breathtaking views with the backdrop of the Burj Khalifa and the city skyline. The live band and DJ make it one of the sought after spots to experience Dubai’s vibrant nightlife.
