7Sky Lounge Bar
7Sky opened in 2011 and brings a little slice of Nikki Beach to Almaty – if you replace the sea breeze and sand between your toes with crisp mountain air and stunning city vistas. Here too one can lounge around on day beds supping fruity cocktails while Euro dance music thumps in the background. 7Sky is a petite outdoor oasis with leather banquettes and beach club-esque cabanas, somewhat incongruously located in an office block on the way to Medeu. The marked entrance isn’t always operational, in which case enter the main building, take the lift up as far as it goes and then climb the stairs up to the seventh floor. Food-wise, there are snack platters as well as more substantial options including steaks and pizzas, with plans to introduce an Uzbek menu. It’s the ideal spot for a summer sundowner (though let’s face it, who can stop at one?).
