Treehouse, Taj Dubai
Happy weekend to all of you. We hope you had a great time with your family, friends and loved ones so far. We had a great start into the weekend, while exploring Dubai’s most prestigious ‘Treehouse’.
The Treeehouse, a terrace located on the 3rd floor of the beautiful Taj Hotel, Dubai in Business Bay, opened its doors recently. The Treehouse is a classy and chic open-air lounge featuring a Renaissance-like decor mixed with house-lounge music and unique cocktails and bar snacks.
The view is breathtaking. Surrounded by the Burj Khalifa and the Address Hotels on one side, and the residential areas of Business Bay on the other side, the Treehouse’s terrace feels like a little hide away in the middle of the city.
When entering the Taj Dubai, you will have to ask the staff where to find the lounge, as there are no signs up yet. Take a right in the lobby and take the elevator to the 3rd floor, follow signs for the pool area and walk up the stairs again, following the DJ’s sounds.
We arrived at around 9:30 pm on Thursday and found the lounge being half empty. We were greeted by the hostess and offered one of the high tables next to the bar. The lounges were empty (there is a minimum spent if you want to occupy one of them) and the staff at that time still had the chance to interact with their guests regularly. Damian, the bar’s in – house Mixologist, welcomed us too. We knew him for quite some time and were happy to see that a young and smart individual like himself, progressed in his career and is able to add value to Dubai’s night life today.
Welcoming us in ‘his’ bar, he offered us a few new cocktail creations such as a ‘smoked’ Oldfashioned and Champagne by the glass. It was great to catch up with him, and his creations were lovely. As time progressed, the lounge got more and more busy and the busier it got, the less attentive the staff was. It was a little hard to gain their attention when asking for one of their blankets (it was a bit cold up there) or another round of drinks, once the clock turned 11pm; however we did not mind as their attitude and their smiles were great.
When noticing us asking for their attention, every single one of them (from the hostess to the service personal) was friendly and happy to serve us. We felt welcomed and taken care of and we are sure that with a little bit of time and training, they will fly around the lounge – even if it is packed. Attitude is, what counts – and the team at the Treehouse impressed us; not only by their product but also by their positivism and their service skills.
It was a wonderful evening, accompanied by a great ambiance and unique vibes in the middle of Dubai; the city that never sleeps. We are excited about the opening of the Treehouse and will be back for sure.
