Now, you may be a little surprised to find dancing, nightclub style in Dubai, but there is actually a wealth of places that you can go and get your groove on. Most have outdoor areas too so you can cool off in the breeze if you get a little overheated while bopping around.

Somewhere that you should definitely try is White. A rooftop outdoor club booking the hottest DJs and acts regularly like Jason Derulo. Expect avant-garde podium dancers, a trendy crowd and a lot of people.

Then there is N’dulge at the Atlantis Palm, this is a slightly smaller club, but it still has a hefty size dance floor for rocking the night away. There is even free entry all night on Fridays, which makes the evening much more affordable, as well as fun.

Hotel bars

Talking of hotels, they really are the lifeblood of the Dubai social scene, as it’s there that you will find more of the trendy bars. Perfect for a quiet and intimate evening out with friends or as a couple.

One important place to head over to the roof bar at the Burj Khalifa, the ideal place to while away an evening in the cool air, and to watch the sun go down over the city.  

Then there is the Uptown Bar at Jumeirah Beach which is open until 2 am. With a great panoramic view of either the city at night or the ocean, it’s the perfect place to sip a cool drink and relax, while still being a part of evening scene.

Going out for dinner

Of course, no night out on the town would be complete without a stop for some delicious food and refreshments at some point during the evening. But where are the best places to eat in the evening in Dubai?

Well, to help you out you can take a peek at these Dubai deals, as they can help you plan the perfect romantic meal for two at At.mosphere at Burj Khalifa, or an intimate, private get together with friends at the Wine Cellar Under BOCA.  Just be careful though because the food quality and dining experiences are seriously good in Dubai and it might just ruin you for any other travel destination that you go to afterwards.
