Thank you Best Bites! Can't beat bubbles with a view.
With its spectacular views from the 62nd floor, Ray's Bar serves a good range of cocktails and sophisticated bar treats.
We tried the Manhattan, Moscow mule and Caipirinha along with a veggie flatbread as a starter before ordering our prized bottle of champagne. The drinks were all delicious and nicely presented. The Manhattan was exceptionally tasty with a good balance between the smokey bourbon and orange notes. What made it even better was the 50% off the price for happy hour (25AED from 6-8 PM). The flatbread was really small and more like a tortilla rather than "flat bread" not the highlight for me.
Then our waiter brought our bottle of bubbly along with an order of the Wagu burgers and BBQ pulled short rib sandwich (served on a soft sweet bun). The food was what you would expect from a Veuve Clicquot themed bar. Meat cooked to temperature and the homemade BBQ sauce was rich and just the right amount of sweetness.
The bar had a good amount of customers and plenty of seats for everyone. It was beautifully decorated with flowers and vines throughout the whole floor. The staff was also very friendly and accommodating.
This place is great to take someone visiting from out of town, or to just simply celebrate the start to the weekend, especially with Dj Jabu spinning a great selection of chilled house music to enjoy the beautiful view of Abu Dhabi at night.
