Dubai is a Muslim city with strict restrictions and hefty fines for breaking laws. At the same time, the authorities of the emirate are doing their best to soften the harsh standards of Islam. In general, if you like parties and discos, do not worry – in Dubai, your requests will be satisfied at the highest level.
Features of the city’s nightlife
Parties start after 22:00 and end after 3:00, the most popular days are Friday and Saturday. The clubs have a strict dress code, shorts and other revealing clothing are prohibited. The average cost of entering the disco is $ 15-30.
Please note that in Dubai there is a restriction on the sale of alcohol to persons under the age of 21. This is much better than in the neighboring emirate of Sharjah, where alcohol is completely prohibited.
Most of the clubs are located in hotels. You can move between them by taxi, but if you are a successful person and love freedom, it is better to rent a luxury car and relax in style. Prices in rental companies are comparable to other countries: for example, renting a Lamborghini in Dubai will cost you an average of $ 700 per day.
Popular clubs in Dubai
360 Degrees is an iconic club located on a rocky spit 500 meters from the coast. The panoramic area of the establishment offers a magnificent view of the Burj Al Arab sail hotel. Please note that persons under the age of 21 are not allowed in here.
Amnesia is a huge dance floor that can hold up to 1000 people. Located in the Dubai Park Hotel on the outskirts of the emirate. The establishment opens at 10 pm and works until 3 am. Free admission for women on Tuesdays and Sundays. Also, admission is free for all hotel customers. By the way, this hotel also houses the Hard Rock Cafe, where famous rock bands often perform.
Nasimi Beach is probably the best beach bar in the emirate. The bar is located on the outer ring surrounding the artificial archipelago of Palm Jumeirah. During the day, an Italian restaurant is open here, and in the evening, it turns into a noisy disco. Entry to the establishment is free for women.
Garage is an extremely unusual establishment with a reputation as a “dating club”. The design is fully consistent with the name of the place: there is a bus bar and several rare car models. There is a full house on Fridays, so make sure to book early. Entry for women is also free.
The club is located literally 500 meters from the Nasimi Beach bar and consists of three zones: an arena (dance floor), a lounge and an outdoor terrace. Actually, if you wish, you can shuttle between these two establishments all night.
Scream is the most popular disco known for the abundance of retro hits from the 80s. The administration of the club is loyal to open clothes and even welcomes some extravagance in style. The establishment is decorated in a loft style: a bunch of pipes, brickwork, wooden beams. This place is suitable for tourists of all ages, so do not hesitate if you are over 50 – here you will be welcomed like a family.
Please note that for being drunk on the streets of Dubai or drinking alcohol, you can get a substantial fine, up to $ 500, and in the worst case, you face imprisonment. On the other hand, no one checks the clubs and hotel rooms, so you can have a full blast there. The main thing is to know how to do it correctly. Another nuance is that during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan, many establishments start selling food and drinks only after sunset. Consider this when planning your trip.
