The Review

  • The Good

    Providing a vertical getaway from the hectic pace of Dubai life, Iris sits on the 27th floor of The Oberoi Hotel, in Business Bay. It's an outdoor venue that captures the intimacy of an indoor lounge where guests can enjoy sensational views, an eclectic cocktail menu and a rich repertoire of live music acts.

    With its glass perimeter, wooden décor and funky lights, Iris creates the aura of a rooftop garden parked amidst the city's skyscrapers.

    Who doesn't love a happy hour? We headed up to Iris Dubai at sunset on a weekday and took full advantage of the 50% discount from 5pm to 8pm. The only thing that topped the reduced prices were the incredible views of the glittering skyline.

    Cocktail lovers, try the Naranja Spritzer, a fab fusion of Prosecco, fresh orange, crystal white sugar, bitters and soda water. Hardcore brunchers will love the 1pm to 6pm all-inclusive packages on a Friday; prices start from AED 360.

  • The Bad
    If we knew it was so difficult to grab a taxi at the end of the night, we would have booked ahead and had one more drink; there were no taxis outside the hotel, so we had to wait for what seemed like forever. This is less of a problem on a weekend when cabs are constantly dropping people off.

    If you don't have a sweet tooth, avoid the Dark Chocolate Marmalade shot - it was a little too sickly for our liking.
  • The Tips
    Try to get there early, or book a seat by the window to make the most of the amazing view. Also take a walk down to the end of the bar where you'll be able to take some great panoramic photos, especially at sunset. Rooftop bars Dubai do not get better than this. Keep an eye on the Iris Dubai website for upcoming live music and events.

    Iris is a more of a twilight to late-night bar, opening its doors only after 6pm. Typically, live bands are hosted on Tuesdays, but give them a call to avoid disappointment.
