Great lounge bar on the roof-top of the Aloft hotel. Always good vibes in the air. Stunning view even if the location is not very central and not much activity around. Wide range of beverages and good food too. Perfect location for an after-work!

The Relax @ 12 is the perfect gathering spot to top off the evening. We were entertained by THE DJ Tamer! Great live DJ. The lounge seating and lighting creates the perfect ambiance. People here love to dance and just have fun! The lively atmosphere is created by hotel guests and locals who come to enjoy Tamer. Ladies Nights extend... More

My last night at Aloft Hotel I chose this restaurant at the top floor. Stunning views in all directions. A bit windy though. So I had to put on my pullover. The food was very tasty and of high quality. I had fresh salmon with mashed potatoes and teryaki vegetables. Perfect size portion. Not too much, not too little.

I'm a Marriott/SPG member and was trying to show loyalty by going and having some sushi. The reviews looked nice enough, and when I navigated a few different lifts to get upstairs, it was completely empty inside. Unfortunately I didn't make it in the door to enjoy the atmosphere or sample the cuisine as a bouncer explained I didn't meet... More

It is fortunate that we stayed at the Aloft Hotel and discovered this venue, for business and pleasure. It has great views, the menu and service good, and the sushi especially great. Not for children, but relaxing and for those who want a bit of night life, there is a nightclub on the same floor. The nice element to this... More

You can definitely relax at the 12th floor. Worth the time and the views of Abu Dhabi is amazing with the drinks. The DJ rocks on the best music in the nights. The staffing department is quite disappointing though, they take time to recognize that guests have seated at a table. Try the outdoors in the forthcoming cooler months.

As guests of Aloft we visited the roof top bar, myself and my partners daughter were wearing shorts and my partner was dressed in smart shorts and a shirt. We were promptly turned away due to my partners shorts. This seemed ludicrous to me. I understand that this is common practice in the UAE and I appreciate that men are... More

This is an easy place to visit eat and enjoy, the staff are polite and helpful but lack initiative, if only the management recognised this then it could be a really great place to visit and eat, but alas this will not happen. The food is void but you need to know your way around the Menu and take the... More

I had come many times without a problem and I could suddenly not enter the restaurant as the employees at the entrance unexpectedly requested an ID and did not accept mine, although it was perfectly valid. I will never go back to that awful place! So rude!
