How we choose the best rooftops in Dubai

Our team independently selects every rooftop bar on this list. A journalist familiar with Dubai, who has visited each bar, handles the writing. Our criteria focus on outstanding rooftop venues that offer a panoramic view and capture the essence of the city. Signature cocktails, prime location, and exceptional service are crucial. We also look for places with distinguished reputations. The list is updated monthly to include new openings and adjustments to the existing ones.
