Whilst it may not compete with Dome or Aer Bar for the much-coveted title of “snazziest rooftop bar”, Bay View wins on other fronts. For a start, it’s open 24 hours, so for the non-stop drinker this is a place to both start or finish a night out; an, secondly, the views are stunning as Bay View is situated right by the Arabian sea and Marine Drive.
Negligee drapes in pink and purple waft over the heads of the drinkers creating billowing sails, enhancing on the nautical ambience of its seafront location. To top it all off prices are reasonable with the drinks menu eschewing extortionate cocktails and champagne for beer and Bacardi Breezers.
For the hungry Bay View whips up a fine line in kebabs, too. Service can be a little on the slow side, but with the chill-out music and blissed out view you won’t be in too much of a hurry anyway.
