Adored by Dubai's society set, the Buddha Bar is done up in sumptuous burgundy and gold velvets, dark woods, and rich red chandeliers, giving an illusion of intimacy despite the sheer scale of the place (it's one of the Grosvenor House hotel's many eating options). The extensive Asian-inspired menu includes crab salad with crunchy pomegranate, Thai green chicken curry, or spiced lamb chops, but admittedly it's more about the scene than the cuisine. At night the restaurant—complete with gargantuan Buddha—has fantastic views onto the twinkling marina. Choose your table carefully, though: You'll feel cut off if you're sitting in one of the lounge areas, while the buzzy bar can get a bit noisy late in the evening, especially when they crank up the Arabian fusion house music. Still, it's an experience watching Dubai's beautiful people pose and play. Advance reservations essential.

Dinner only, 8 p.m.–2 a.m.
