2. Armani Privé
Bar in the world’s tallest building
Just the fact that it’s the world’s tallest building would be reason enough to visit, even if the bar was a dodgy dive. But this is Dubai, and dodgy dives, though not unheard of, are not the city’s style. So they’ve opted for Privé, a swanky bar in a fashion designer’s hotel, with uber-modern design, VIP-feel and glammed-up crowd. It’s pure theatre, of course, but beautifully so. They even have the region’s largest LED screen upon which to watch fashion or football, as you so please.
