You are looking for a cool spot in Dubai to catch up with some friends but don't know where to go!? Dubai is a cosmopolitan city uniting people from all over the world. It blends a mixture of western sophistication with Islamic principals. However, there are many misconceptions, especially about alcohol. But don't worry the bars are far from dry, drinking alcohol is not cheap though!

The Vault Skybar JW Marriott

In Dubai you are spoilt for choice if it comes to hotspots for an amazing night out. Besides the numerous cool hangouts to chose from almost every big hotel has a few options to spend a night out as well. From themed cigar bars to classy and elegant places and rooftop bars to lounge clubs at the beach, Dubai has them all! Even the expats that live here for years did not have the chance to go and explore all of them, there are simply too many choices!

Lately I had a couple drinks in the Vault, the skybar in the JW Marriott Marquis in Business Bay. Located ont he 71st and the 72nd floor it makes it an excellent place to sip a cocktail while having massive views of Downtown Dubai including the world's tallest building, the Burj Khalifa.

Despite the slick and elegant interior there is a laid-back vibe which is created by the semi private area's where you can hang out with a group of friends on comfortable sofas. The bar is located on two floors, the upper floor being the more laid-back one, while the first floor is kept smoking free!

This bar is an excellent venue for 'after-hours' as there are drink specials from 6pm-8pm 7 days a week, which includes 50% off on a variety of cocktails and 2-for-1 for bottled beers.
