Fancy a tipple?
With vertiginous views of the Dubai
Creek, the old dhow ship yards and the world’s tallest building in sight, the creative concoctions of an alcoholic and non-alcoholic variety give the cocktail lounge at the top of the Intercontinental Hotel its flavor and the views its well earned name - Vista. At the Sky View Bar, on the top of the Burj Al Arab, indulge in the ultimate in overpriced bragging rights with a 55-year-old Macallan single-malt Scotch, served in an 18-carat gold Baccarat tumbler. It only costs $7,440 a glass. If that’s too rich for your blood, Trader Vics Mai-Tai Lounge serves up tropical storms called Tika Puka Pukas with Polynesian musical stylings for restless natives.
