Dubai’s latest lounge promises “an experience to remember” (Aer, geddit?) when it opens its doors on Friday, September 27, at Emirates Finanacial Tower in Dubai International Financial Centre. Here’s what we know so far.

The venue

Big, in a word. Aer is home to a 30.5-metre bar– the longest in Dubai thus far – and spans 1,858 square metres of chilling, eating and dancing space – plus a terrace with views of the gleaming DIFC skyline. The lavish lounge is sectioned into smaller rooms, each with their own interior theme, one of which is a shisha corner ruled by "shisha artist Black Ji to transform your experience" – we're as intrigued as you are.

The food

Fusion cuisine meets finger food at Aer, which serves up an array of gourmet flatbreads, plus sashimi salad, shredded Wagyu kulcha and Angus dim sum – and that sushi, of course.

Gold sushi, anyone?

From 24K steak and fish to coffee, ice cream and dim sum, Dubai's penchant for gold-encrusted or infused food and drink is well known. At Aer, this novelty can be tasted in the form sushi sprinkled with gold flakes.

The drinks

A drink - in a a gold-flaked glass, of course - gets the culinary torch treatment at Aer 

Suffice it to say, Dubai’s longest bar has plenty to keep your spirits high, with the Arabian Mule and Royal Sour cocktails being touted as the finest concoctions on the drinks’ menu.

The music

Aer will have a rotation of DJs spinning deep house, commercial and RnB tunes.
