Flying Cup Dubai

If the usual dinner and drinks isn’t doing it for you anymore, we have the perfect solution. Introducing JBR’s latest initiative, Flying Cup Dubai.

The soon to be opened project will allow you and your friends as well as family members over the age of four to enjoy a bevvie whilst being suspended some 40 metres in the sky.

According to the up and coming project’s website,, prices start at AED75 per person with its operating time running from 10am to midnight, every Thursday to Saturday. And, while the exact opening date is yet to be announced, the attraction’s rapid progress indicates that it could be sooner than we think.

While we patiently wait for Flying Cup Dubai to open, here’s a shortlist of restaurants and unique dining experiences to try in the meantime.

Al Dawaar
Dubai’s first and only revolving restaurant will have you spinning around quite literally. Indulge in dishes like slow baked US ribs and teriyaki salmon steak whilst the ever changing scenery provides the night’s entertainment. Not recommended for those who have a fear of heights or are prone to motion sickness.
