New rooftop lounge Hi Five opens its doors in Dubai

We’re always on the search for a new hangout with laid-back vibes and rooftop views of the Palm Jumeirah, and now we’ve found one that will make you say “hi five!”

No, really. Originally the Story Rooftop Lounge, and before that the Vista Rooftop, the new spot in Media City has officially opened its doors, and it features two terraces, a list of deals and promises to “tear up the rulebook of traditional food fare”. We’re intrigued.

Located in the Holiday Inn Express, Hi Five, a restaurant and lounge, offers a range of international cuisine with a Hi Five twist and three-hour happy hours every weekday from 5pm, with bottled hops, plus red and white grape for AED25.

There’s also a ‘Brunch Better” do every Friday, boasting a four-hour sharing feast of hummus, tandori chicken wings, brava potatoes, beef gyoza with miso dip, diavolo, roast chicken wraps, tempura shrimp and much more. Prices start at AED220. A DJ will also be spinning the tunes, so bring those dancing shoes.

As for the women, expect a ladies’ night every Thursday from 5pm, offering three free drinks, free-flowing beverages and signature Hi Five nachos for AED99.

It’s been labelled as a “working week retreat” from 5pm onwards, and with all that going on, we can see why.

Looking for other venues with chilled vibes? These trendy spots aren’t just stylishly cool, they’re the great escape from that summer sun.
