Get on your dancing shoes and say goodbye to 2016 in style.
2016 is nearly over and it has been a busy year, so what better way to celebrate than to hit the Dubai bar and club scene!
So whether you enjoy dancing the night away with a few cheeky cocktails or you like to stand and have a good old chat and reminisce about the past year with friends (also with a few cheeky cocktails!) then Dine in the City has some suggestions for you!
Lucky Voice – Grand Millennium
Lucky voice is a brand new addition to Dubai, you can either choose to spend the evening having a fun drink in their large bar room, with long tables, great for socializing…OR! Book one of their private karaoke rooms, spend an hour or two crooning and belting out a variety of ballads with your closet friends. Excellently priced at 150DHS per person, minimum spend for drinks, this really is a welcome arrival!
Copper Dog – Double Tree Hilton
This is the ultimate cozy whisky pub on JBR, heavy wooden furniture and tartan fabrics make this a Scottish haven, delicious food and hearty drinks, it really is a perfect place to have a fun evening out with friends. Copper Dog has become one of my favourite bars to while away the early evening, friendly staff and a welcoming atmosphere. Head over for their happy hour and check out the live music evenings for something a little special.
The Pub at Stereo Arcade – Double Tree Hilton
Stereo Arcade may be famous for its nightclub, however, have you been next door to The Pub? Well if you haven’t I suggest you get over there ASAP, this is a little hidden gem, awesome pub atmosphere with some seriously good live bands. If clubbing isn’t really your thing, but you are itching for a bit of a dance then this is the place to go. Everyone is always friendly and up for a good time.
Lock, Stock & Barrel – Grand Millennium
When the only negative thing people have to say about a bar is that the elevator is a bit slow you know that you will be in for a good time. Lock, Stock & Barrel arrived mid 2016 and has become a local haunt for many. They have a happy hour every day from 5 till 8pm with 2-4-1 drinks and a pretty decent food selection. Plus the music is ridiculously good, most of the week there is a DJ selection of old favourites, however on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday you can enjoy live music from their truly amazing house band 13Daze.
Nola – Armada Blue Bay Hotel
Over the past year my friends and I have spent many an evening seated at the Nola bar enjoying a good chat and bottle of wine. It is one of the nicest places to chill out and relax, the bar staff are charming and the interior is chic, warm and inviting. The menu is inspired by New Orleans, and seriously tasty, especially the hot cheese spinach dip! They have a daily happy hour from 5 till 8pm, and the live band just adds to the overall ambiance.
Zero Gravity Beach Club
A firm Dubai favourite Zero Gravity is an eclectic night out, with an entrancing club atmosphere inside, you can dance to top DJs or have a bit of fun with some old classics. If you need a bit of a break then head outside to the terrace, stunning views of the Dubai Marina will set the tone and make this an evening to remember.
Stereo Arcade – Double Tree Hilton
Although relatively new on the Dubai club scene Stereo Arcade has quickly become a place to be seen. Great music and a lively ambiance coupled with old school video games in the entrance hall make it easy to see why this club has so quickly become the place to go at the weekend.
Club 360° – Jumeirah Beach Hotel
Party the night away on a jetty perched in the Arabian Gulf, an unobstructed view of the Dubai skyline and beyond. With Spectacular views of the Burj Al Arab, 360° is a must go if you are staying in Dubai. This nightclub offers you a chic and cosmopolitan evening out, featuring some of the world’s best DJs, party the night away in this unrivalled location.
New Year’s Eve on the beach…under the Atlantis Hotel arch…famous DJs…spectacular fireworks…fabulous drinks…if any of this appeals to you then you should probably reserve your place at Nasimi Beach! Widely recognised as one of Dubai’s most popular club evenings, what can be a more perfect way to enjoy this city than by partying by the sea on the iconic Palm!
White Dubai has yet again been named the Dubai Club of the year, and with good reason. This hyper trendy evening out is the place to be seen, a excellent excuse to seriously dress to impress, enjoy an evening, as this really is the ultimate Dubai club night out!
