The Lounge Burj Khalifa is officially open
The Burj Khalifa is a building that needs no introduction, it’s one of the most iconic tourist attractions in Dubai and if you haven’t had the chance to go up to the top, then you should definitely add it to your bucket list.

The Lounge just opened inside the Burj and is located on the 152nd and 154th floors, that’s about 545m from ground level to put it into perspective for you! If you’re looking for a unique place to enjoy some drinks, this is the place to go (or maybe even after you visit the top and check out the views as a nightcap)!

Open every single day, there are no restrictions for when you can check the place out… make sure you bring your camera because you’ll be in for some amazing views (that change depending on if you’re there in the day or night). There’s an outdoor balcony that’s surrounded by glass to make sure everyone’s safe but to allow for an amazing look out into the city.

If you enjoy a good cuppa, then head there anytime between 12:30-4pm (prices goes from Dhs550) to enjoy some afternoon tea or between 5:30-7pm for some canapés (Dhs600). Of course, the option for some afterwork drinks are always there from 7:30pm to midnight! This might not be the cheapest option, but it’s worth it if you’re celebrating something special! With Valentines Day coming up, could this be a potential idea?
