Nestled in the heart of Gulshan, Amari's Deck 41 lights up the night with jubilance. With a clear view of the city, the distant buzz of traffic and the lovely breeze by the lake, your mind will sway to the music of the night, which gets younger by the minute.
Deck 41 shines bright in the shadows of the night; copper-red and teal lights set up in succession work impeccably well with the orange glow of tungsten, calming the nerves and steadily setting the mood.
Let the citrusy flavour of your mocktail run down your throat while you hear the wind whistling through the leaves and the symphony of Eric Clapton crooning in your ears. As the twilight fades into darkness, a growing crowd of youngsters and young adults fill the rustic seats.
Incoherent chatter of people in their early 20s echo from the middle of Deck 41 along with young adults with creaseless shirts tucked into nicely tailored pants and shining cap-toed shoes, speaking softly after a long day. The DJ by now has switched tunes as the music is pleasantly getting louder by the minute with Supernova and Mic Drop set up on queue.
Right next to the entrance, wooden stairs lead the guests to the top of Deck 41. The floors glow in a dark shade of brown under the blue fluorescent light; a nice arrangement to enjoy a romantic date under the glow of the moon blending perfectly with the neon lights of the deck.
People walk in at regular intervals as they enjoy a fresh glass of a fizzing mocktail or a quick snack. Some take their drinks and stroll around the open roof of the boutique hotel, while others walk up the short flight of stairs to sit by the swimming pool, feet dipped into the clear cyan water, gazing up at the stars trying to make out the constellations.
In addition to the spacious architecture, the crafters of Deck 41 have managed to blend serenity with the zeal and energy of youth. There's something for everybody.
Deck 41 is the melting pot of Dhaka's growing nightlife. People of all age groups, a myriad of nationalities crowd the dynamic rooftop. Whether it's for a quick drink or a dose of calm or a place for hangout, Deck 41 is ideal to cater to your needs. The stunning view of the city lights along with their food only adds to the beauty of Amari's rooftop.
