Dubai by Night: Clubs, Lounges and Bars You Can’t Miss

There’s a wide selection of clubs, lounges and bars in Dubai, and if you’re only there for a short time you’ve got some difficult decisions to make. There’s Stereo Arcade with its neon lights and arcade machines, or the Ewaan Lounge with its cool swimming pool. At the Chillout Ice Lounge meanwhile, the whole bar’s made from ice.

For drinks with a view, the Burj Al Arab’s Skyview Bar is one of the most interesting and exciting places you could choose. Go early in the evening and you can try the afternoon tea while gazing out over Dubai and the Palm Jumeirah, before sampling the extensive cocktail menu.

The Bahri Bar at the Madinat Jumeirah Hotel is the perfect spot for you to sip on a sundowner cocktail. From here you can watch the Burj Al Arab’s light show in the distance, and admire the beaches, waterways and verandas in the foreground.

If a relaxed pub is more your thing then the Irish Village is the most authentic experience you’ll find in Dubai. It’s very popular with local ex pats, so if you’re craving a taste of home you’ll find it here thanks to the pub grub and beer garden. Elsewhere at the themed Belgian Beer Café you’ll find some of the most interesting beers in the UAE.

When the time comes to head to a club, try White Dubai, Cavalli Club or People by Crystal. Zero Gravity should be high on your list too, as it’s right on the beach and often has all you can drink offers. Email ahead to get on the guest list and you’ll even get a goody bag when you leave.
