Being situated in Knowledge Village at the Festival City Intercontinental may not be the most hip decision for a bar catering to the young and wealthy, but Vista Bar still manages to attract a stylish & discerning clientele. Maybe it’s their delicious Asian food platters or Friday night barbecues, the sultry interiors adorned in leather, or the amazing views over the city and directly on the Burj Al Arab. The BBQ nights are actually a great draw, since they offer an all you can eat grill as long as you maintain your consumption of champagne, beer and wine. Order the Camambert with chili jam or the three week-hung Purelands Ranch Philadelphia black angus fillet for a refined international palette. The three distinct dining and drinking areas will appeal to everyone: a classy and romantic piano bar with twinkling chandeliers, a clean and sharp cocktail bar with great drinks, and finally two fifth floor outdoor terraces where shisha and cigar smoke will flow liberally.
