Joyce Geriesi Jaber writes about her visit to a really cool and unusual rooftop bar i Dubai.
Nestled in the dunes of the Dubai Desert is Bab Al Shams Desert Resort. A charming Arabian themed setting comprised of two pools, a spa, many restaurants and the charismatic Al Sarab Rooftop lounge. Not your typical rooftop bar located on the highest floor of a sky rise building in the middle of a bustling city, but instead a second floor open terrace looking out on to the magical desert dunes of Dubai.
This one of a kind rooftop lounge is enjoyable day or night, they serve great tasting food & drinks and have very obliging service, typical of the Arabian hospitality.
During the day you can enjoy a laid back lunch whilst looking out for camels or spotting a sand storm which we got to see in the far distance. During the evening you can nibble on traditional Arabic mezze platters (appetizers/ finger foods) while the sun sets on another day on this remote paradise.
At night Al Sarab comes to life with the sound of live traditional music which you can enjoy over a drink or two. Shisha is served in many different flavours for those wanting to give something unique a try.
