Dubai has a strong reputation for its vibrant nightlife, which is interesting because it clashes with the city’s Muslim culture and Sharia law.

Dubai’s glamorous hotel bars and nightclubs make it seem like a totally different place come night time. You have to be 21 to drink here and the key hours tend to be from 10pm to 3am, although if you want to drink and party outside of this you can be sure to find a welcoming place.

From casual beach bars to upmarket clubs, there are plenty of spots in Dubai to choose from every night of the week.
