Dubai really delivers when it comes to luxury beach bars and The Jetty Lounge is a prime example. Set within the luxurious One&Only Royal Mirage resort, forget rowdy holiday resort-style bars, The Jetty Lounge is a more elegant take on the beach-bar concept.
The seating includes inviting sofas that cascade from in front of the beautifully designed bar down to the beach. Canopies shield guests from the sun, but they don’t distract from the gorgeous colours that streak across the horizon as it sets. It’s an ideal beachside bar in which to break away from the working week and truly relax.
Music is ambient and, despite the locale, the patrons are unpretentious, which is as refreshing as the bar’s ‘Moored to the Jetty’ cocktails. If you want to snack, sample the delectable tapas-style platters, including the Mexican, which includes tortilla chips, guacamole and spicy salsa (Dhs70).
