With only 44 hotel bars chosen worldwide, Dubai has three in the list, with Skyview Bar & Restaurant at Burj Al Arab Jumeirah, Koubba Bar at Jumeirah Al Qasr, and Bahri Bar at Jumeirah Mina A’Salam all representing the Emirate, sister publication Caterer Middle East reported.
To make the list, each hotel bar is inspected to ensure it reaches the correct luxury standards reflecting comfort, choices, and convenience, including a special level of attention to detail.
“We’ve seen hotel bars evolve enormously in our 60-plus years of operating Forbes Travel Guide, hence the focus of our fourth Verified List,” said Filip Boyen, CEO of Forbes Travel Guide. “Hotel bars are now destinations in their own right and have the ability to transform a hotel experience. We congratulate all of the bars on the list, which were vetted and verified based on the most rigorous standards. They not only scored highly, but also provide the most luxurious experience for hotel and local guests alike”.
The full list features hotel bars in China, France, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Morocco, the Philippines, Portugal, Singapore, Switzerland, the UAE, the UK, and the USA.
London had more entries on the list than any other city with six, while the USA had 11 in total.
