Hg2 : The Hedonist

Vu’s Bar

Although it’s recently been knocked off the top spot in terms of views (if you’ll excuse the pun), the slightly seedy 51st floor of what used to be Dubai’s tallest building is still an interesting, if overpriced, place to quaff a Champagne cocktail. The clientele is an unusual mix of men in local dress and women of sometimes questionable moral repute, plus a few tourists and escapees from the office block opposite (where Sheikh Mohammed, the Ruler of Dubai, used to have a few floors to himself). It’s a shiny-shoes-and-shirts destination – the dour doormen will have no issues with turning you away if they don’t deem you properly dressed. The tables by the triangular windows (a theme throughout the building, apparently influenced by Islamic astronomy) are the best as you’ll have to crane to see the Dubai’s lightshow below otherwise.
