With contrasting views of the vista, you are reminded of the ancient traditions and the bright future of this flourishing metropolis. Estrellas offers delightful food, silky cocktails, visually entertaining surroundings that fill your senses. At the heart of the space is a huge swimming pool, lined by tables and comfy beanbags, though the glittering Dubai backdrop is the real star of the lounge’s aesthetic.
While the tables by the pool are lovely, try, if you can, to bag a seat on the upper deck of Estrellas. From here you get a better view, and not just of the Dubai skyline. To get to this area, you’ll find yourself walking across a glass floor that reveals a plunging, dizzying drop right down to the hotel’s reception.
While admittedly rather daunting to tip-toe across, it’s another thing that sets this impressive and unassuming Bur Dubai nightspot apart. Excellent service, noteworthy drinks, and a stunning view make for a pretty decent evening on the town.
