Top Nightlife Experiences in Dubai

By Viator, March 2018

No reviews, be the first!

While the nightlife in the United Arab Emirates tends to be much mellower than in other parts of the world, it’s at its best in Dubai, the hottest nightlife city anywhere in the Middle East. With a happening bar and club scene, a few performing arts options and a bit of local flavor, there’s a diversity to Dubai’s nightlife that should satisfy just about any traveler. 

Dubai’s nightclubs and bars are top notch, and they tend to be exclusive, so visitors are encouraged to dress to the nines. The city’s hotels hold most of the liquor licenses, and therefore house many of the best clubs. If you’re on a budget, ask around for ladies nights and drink specials.

Locals in Dubai typically hang out in shisha cafes, smaller affairs where friends gather to share a traditional water pipe in the evening. Be aware that these types of bars rarely have licenses to serve alcohol.

If you want to sample it all, embark on a Dubai Nightlife Tour. Dress to impress before getting picked up by a local guide for an unforgettable night on the town, including a stop at a local shisha bar, the Dubai Mall fountain show, a photo op in front of the world’s tallest building, a complimentary cocktail at one of the city’s top nightclubs and al fresco dancing at a beachside bar.
