Hey people, I m back in Dubai and the sun is shining and luckily it’s not too hot yet! Sadly though my luggage didn’t come with me and is left behind in Schiphol …. not a happy girl! So I thought to cheer us all up it was once again time to share another favourite place of mine…… One & Only Royal Mirage.
This has got to be the most beautiful place in Dubai! I fell in love the first time I came here over 10 years ago, in those days it was the place to be, especially the Kasbar! Nowadays, everyone goes there to get some green because as you can see from below the gardens are lush and gorgeous. For me, I come here to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and excellent food and beverages. I have already blogged about the latest outlet to have joined the Royal Mirage. This time though I m going to tell you all about the Roof Top bar.
If you’re looking for a place to hang out with friends accompanied by a perfect view of the Palm Jumeriah and a refreshing drink to help the conversation flow then look no further than the Rooftop bar. This time I was here I went for happy hour at 4’o’clock and the staff even went and fetched my favourite selection of Mezza from the main kitchen for me …. what good service is that. As the sun goes down the lights come up and the lounge music creates the perfect relaxed atmosphere for a long cocktail evening ahead.
As you can see from the photos The Royal Mirage is a haven of Arabic Architecture with beautiful Moroccan colours such as amber and copper with water features and earthy plants all over the hotel. Mosaic tile patterns adorn the hallways and help to make the atmosphere feel like you have stepped back into Ancient Greek times too.
I kept my outfit suitably casual for my afternoon at the Rooftop. This cape has a loose fitting reminding me of a Kaftan.
What do you like to wear to cocktail hour?
Ciao from Dubai xx
