Flying Cup
Nina CattBy Nina Catt -

If your Insta grid is in desperate need of fresh new content, we’re here to tell you that you can now practice your selfie skills 40 metres IN THE AIR!

The newest attraction to open at JBR (Jumeirah Beach Residence), has locals and visitors lining up for a bird’s eye view of one of Dubai’s best beach resorts. Flying Cup is a café like no other. Enjoy your favourite brew in a truly multi-sensorial experience while snapping the perfect selfie in front of some of the world’s most famous sights.

The 20-minute experience will hoist you into the air for 360-degree views of some of Dubai’s most famous landmarks such as The Palm Jumeirah, Ain Dubai and the Burj Al Arab. Set above the beach and overlooking the sparkling Arabian Gulf, strap yourself into one of 16 seats on the moving platform for an unforgettable ride.

Open seven days per week from 10am ‘til midnight (1am on Thursday’s and Friday’s) you can choose your preferred time, depending on your favourite light! We think sunset is the best time to snap all of those stunning views!
