Okay this is a posh place. But it is also a great rooftop bar with amazing views over the beautiful city of Singapore. You can just conquer the views while enjoying an ice-cold Mai Tai up in the summery Asian breeze. And if you are up for a little dancing, the DJ will certainly not disappoint you.

What do you LIKE about your bar:
Barasti is located right at the beach with indoor and outdoor facilities. It’s very popular in Dubai, ranked as one of the best bars in the world in 2006. I especially like the outdoor bar which is furnished with wooden staff that makes you feel like being on an island. Their very nice food is served in both indoor and outdoor. Depending on your musical mood, you can enjoy House outdoors and Slow Rock indoors. If you are in a proper party mood, join the weekend beach parties or if you feel like Salsa, there are Salsa classes every Tuesday.
