Flair 5: An urban jungle in the heart of Dubai

Flair 5: An urban jungle in the heart of Dubai



Flair 5 is an enticing outdoor bar and lounge that is the ultimate after-work city escape.

Head to the rooftop of The Ritz-Carlton Dubai International Financial Centre and aside from the stunning Dubai skyline that rises above you, prepare to spark up a love affair with botanical cocktails, herb-infused drinks and floral-inspired sharing menus.

Immerse yourself in a splendid garden space of raised wooden cabanas with plump cushions and raised bar-style tables that are enveloped in lush green vegetation. The feel of a secret garden is prevalent and it’s easy to see why the venue was awarded ‘best outdoor bar in Dubai’ at the Fact Dining Awards Dubai 2020.

Be open to discovery with a vast array of house pours that are home-crafted by a team of green-thumbed mixologists whose philosophy focuses on floral alchemy. The beverage options are inspired, innovative and influenced by the seasons and boast ingredients and concoctions that you won’t find anywhere else in the city. As you sip and enjoy the relaxed setting with friends, you can move through the various sections of the expansive beverage menu, encompassing playful categories such as ‘Not Your Usual G&T’ to ‘Perfect Serve’ and ‘Back To Basics.’ One thing is for sure. Flair 5 is a cocktail lovers dream.

The quality of drinks is on par with the high-levels of service provided by a young, funky and friendly team who go out of their way to ensure any visit to Flair 5 is memorable and meaningful. Embrace the experimental and delve into Flair 5’s expansive menu of sharing bites, ceviches, maki rolls, tacos and boards. The striking salmon acevichado maki roll combines salmon with Aji rocoto and fermented sweet potato and is not to be missed. For a sweet treat, the deconstructed cheesecake with mandarin sorbet is infused with lemongrass and makes for the perfect finale to the dining experience.

Flair 5 is also home to several exciting promotions including the increasingly-popular Secret Garden brunch. Famed as one of the most Instagram-friendly brunches in town, this brunch ticks the boxes for food, drinks, entertainment and atmosphere. This Secret Parties favourite is back on the foliage-covered terrace where diners can expect a menu of black cod with miso glaze, peri-peri chicken, maki rolls, ceviche and delicious desserts. Fridays from 1pm to 4:30pm. AED 299 (soft package), AED 399 (house beverages), AED 499 (sparkling) and AED 599 (Champagne).

Drop by for a cheeky catch up with friends over ‘social hours’ which run Saturday to Wednesday from 5pm to 7pm. The early evening promotions encourages you to linger over sundowners with selected beverages and snacks from AED 40.

Escape to a hidden nook in a pocket of wilderness and enjoy chilled lounge beats from the resident DJ, setting the mood for a night of plant-based tipples. Set within a midnight apothecary of aromatic twists and creative combinations. Have you visited yet?
