Dubai is known as one of the hottest nightlife hotspots in the world and a major destination for parties. Put on your dancing shoes and get ready for a party all night (even at 3am) and don’t forget to try Dubai’s most famous cocktail, the Frog.
No matter what kind of party man you are, Dubai’s rich nightlife has something for everyone. Whether you are interested in Dubai’s coolest music nightclubs or the quieter rooftop bars of Dubai, there is plenty to choose from.
Luckily for Dubai residents, the city is full of glitzy attractions and great bars that go above and beyond the base, from beach bungalows perfect for sipping fresh roses to groundbreaking irrigation points for push-ups. Here’s a guide to where to take a friend or partner for a drink in the Emirates.
Below is the list of top 10 best bars in dubai.
Drinks by the pool? Put up a sign. Delicious Mediterranean food? Put up a sign. Panoramic view of the marina? Put up a sign. No wonder Bruce was nominated for four Dubai Nightlife Awards this year. On the 46th floor of the JLT Taj Mahal, many events are held every night of the week, including old Mondays, women-only nights on Wednesdays and a sumptuous brunch on Fridays. Mixed drink classes are great fun and a unique twist on a dating night where you can make your own mixed drink and enjoy it afterwards. Advance booking required.
Emphasizing the shades of gray, blue and off-white sand of cubic houses and narrow marble streets, the space is inspired by the beautiful Cycladic village of Paros. The Olympus star is the symbol of the island of Paros in Dubai, giving respect to the Greek identity and origins of the place. This powerful symbol was inscribed on the shield of the Greek warrior Achilles. Delphi Epsilon in the center represents alpha and omega; Around the Delphi Epsilon there are four points symbolizing beginning and end, eternity, infinity, the four elements – earth, water, fire and air. The twelve horns that surround the foundations represent the gods and goddesses of Mount Olympus.
Inspired by the Greek island in the heart of the Aegean Sea, Paros is the only rooftop bar and restaurant on JLT. Located on the 46th floor of the Taj Jumeirah Lakes Towers, the Paros Hotel offers a great getaway from dawn to dusk.
If you have not heard of Bla Bla (i.e., where have you been?), It is a huge place with 20 bars, three restaurants and an amazing pool overlooking the Dubai Islands that will open soon. Poolside pavilions, rooftop bars, relaxing lawns and a vibrant atmosphere await in Bla Bla. No matter which bar you go to (there is always a long line on Friday nights), you will find that you can not check out the nearby bars – Birmingham’s “gangster” bars, tropical island resorts or Mexican bars or fancy bars The Bronk Hideaway – plus downloads for more. In short, Bla Bla is an adventure and if you have not yet done so, it’s your brand. Your next big night is waiting for you.
It opened with a loud shout – a new place with 20 huge bars, 3 restaurants and a smooth pool overlooking the Ferris wheel to the Dubai eye that will open soon – was inevitable – Bla Bla was everyone’s name. When the sun goes down, the ground flows in a positive direction.
Pavilion captains by the pool set off in a variety of rooftop bars, from the soothing lawn at Lightbox Bar to reviving the atmosphere at The Garrison, where Tommy Shelby will be watching an Irish short film. There was a strong mood of spitting and scattered throughout the night.
Wherever you find it is impossible not to check out the nearby bars and their concepts. The bar offers a full chain of gang bars in Birmingham, tropical island resorts, Mexican dive bars and bizarre Bronx resorts – and anything that comes to mind to fill the space.
After a major renovation earlier this year, this stylish Business Bay bar brings the outside in. With its lush vegetation and aesthetics of the wood in the most elegant way to breathe nature.
Seven Sisters is a luxury bar and lounge located on the ground floor of the JW Marriott Marquis in the heart of Dubai’s Business Bay. Offering an exclusive Asian-Mediterranean menu, cocktails and stunning views of the Dubai Canal and skyline, Seven Sisters offers the ultimate open-air lounge experience for guests who want to relax and pamper themselves.
Seven Sisters Dubai, opened in Lebanon in 2015, is an evolution of this popular place. Beirut’s famous nightlife scene stands in its name at the heart of the Seven Sisters. For her performance in Dubai. Modern and luxurious interior design with an attractive balcony, it ranges from relaxing evening sessions to nights of live music and entertainment. Seven sisters swear to make Beirut irresistible magic in Dubai.
The Theater is a show where everyone sings, dances and dances with artists from all over the world. In an effort to break the traditional gap between performers and audiences, every seat in the house can see the action as the scene progresses, along with Las Vegas sky dancers hanging from the ceiling. And if the offer does not appeal to you, the show includes an extensive menu: blogger caviar, hot dishes, truffle chips and lobster and vagio tomahawk – need I say more? There are many bars around this place, including outdated bars.
You will be completely immersed in the action in front of you until you see the air dancers coming from Vegas and hanging from the ceiling. Every evening, the artists promise to take you on a musical adventure that combines Eastern and Western influences, legends from the past to the present.
The elements of the show range from reinterpretations of iconic scenes from the film to the best of Arab pop from the 80s to the present day. The show became more vibrant as the night progressed, with lead singer Brian Adams playing people like Calvin Harris and Bruno Mars.
Rumba Cuban Bar & Kitchen
If you’re currently dreaming of a Caribbean vacation (and who doesn’t?), This new palm bar is the closest you’ll get to Cuba without boarding a plane. Rumba Cuban Bar and Kitchen opened earlier this summer on the already popular Club Vista Mare Strip. The new place combines Cuban food, drink and music with the aesthetics of Havana Beach from the 50s. There are vibrant murals and a selection of Cuban hops and beverages mixed to move it all. Do not sleep in Cuban food, from ceviche to croquettes, to control hunger. Noisy choice.
Few people do not dream of vacationing in the Caribbean. While we cannot help too much (sorry), the new bar on the Palm promises to do its best to bring you to Cuba with the help of some classic drinks and tapas in the Avnery style.
Vibrant murals on the walls and even the front of the classic hood near the entrance (of course Havana is famous for this), the bar area is vibrant and calculated. This attention is also expressed in another small detail – a napkin that looks like a Cuban roll, a newspaper-like menu full of anecdotes, facts and stories.
If you visit Ají (which once occupied the area), you will know its layout – there is still a long strip along the back wall. The atmosphere here is lively and vibrant on weekends, a new and comfortable place to grab a drink and meet friends, with upbeat Cuban music and friendly staff.
Now open on Sheraton Grand Hotel Dubai on Sheikh Zayed Street, CUE offers dazzling entertainment and world-class performances, including air and fire shows. The celebrants, brought to us by the team behind WHITE Dubai, can be pampered with a variety of unique blends. Looking for dinner, drinks and a show? This is your new nightlife place.

Looking for a new and great club to try this weekend? Black DXB just opened in Soho Garden and really brings up the club scene in Dubai. With high ceilings, luxurious interiors and modern sound and lighting systems, this is the perfect place to celebrate – be sure to book a table in advance. The club is home to some of Dubai’s most popular DJs, who play R&B, Afrobit and hip hop, and there is also an international menu to try. Due to current restrictions, dancing is still not possible, so you will need to sit to the music of the live DJ.
High ceilings, luxurious interiors and modern sound and lighting systems ensure the ultimate party destination for your weekend. Be sure to call ahead to book your table. While Black promises to invite some of Dubai’s most popular DJs to play RnB, aphrodisiacs and hip hop, there is also a world menu to choose from when you are hungry.
But it is still not possible to dance because of the current restrictions, so you can enjoy the DJ and the music from the couch. As part of the launch, you will notice many new promotions and nights.
Every Thursday night, DJs John Roca and Devon Cusco will host #HYPE with the latest urban and African beats to keep up energy for the weekend. Enjoy Black Friday with DJ Devon Kosko and the news on hip hop and RnB. Starts at 22:00. It lasts until 2 at night.
An award-winning bar (currently the 23rd best bar in the world), Zuma’s bar is as crowded as the nearby Beiner Reiner. A large portion of it is the sophisticated drinks (must be roast beef with soy, ginger, lemon and cilantro), including the famous Zuma Tai Tai, as well as delicious snacks. Crowded most nights, especially Thursday nights, DIFC passengers in suits and boots want to start their weekend in style.
Zuma offers a unique space for any occasion. Our beautiful private dining room is the ideal place for a business or social lunch, brunch, cocktail reception or dinner. It serves authentic but unconventional modern Japanese cuisine. The menu features a variety of dishes from three kitchens: the main kitchen, the sushi counter and the Robeta grill.
Cielo Sky Lounge
This Ibiza-style lobby is old-fashioned but nice. In fact, you will not find many penthouses in Dubai with a better view of the entire skyline. It has long been a favorite, and for good reason, with great views of the creek water all around.
It is adjacent to the outdoor hot promenade (just below, well worth a visit as it is the best outdoor restaurant of 2018) and a trendy bar, restaurant and hookah lounge QD’s. And when the sun goes down, the place really has its own character – especially on weekends when the sunset masses are slowly flowing.
It may not suit everyone, but especially when combined with the bar’s DJ, it will appeal to those looking for a Ibiza – inspired atmosphere, with a blue and white blurry design. The atmosphere is also optimistic and stylish.
There is nothing to talk about Happy Hour, so if you want to wait, the bill can accumulate quickly, but it will not cost you around Dh60 more than you would expect for a drink in such a place and area. For women looking for a slightly cheaper night out on the tiles, be sure to check out the midweek party, which offers free-flowing Spanish mixes starting at 10pm on Tuesdays. Until 1 a.m.
Luna Sky Bar
At the Dubai International Financial Center? This stunning bar at the Four Seasons DIFC is the ultimate place to have a drink in the sky. If you are eating dinner nearby (or have just finished it), stop for a snack (you will also receive a free snack with each drink) and enjoy the view.
The relatively quiet environment of the Four Seasons DIFC is a beautiful, dimly lit courtyard with small pockets for relaxation and many beverage options. As temperatures return to moderate levels, the price of food and beverages outside soared.
Several closed restaurants were abandoned in the winter; The slings emptied quickly. Balloon, however, you do not have to strain your elbow to isolate your seat, or stand angrily near the ring, jumping from the nearest table with every movement of your limbs. There is a lot of space. When we visited there were a variety of post-workout tables, dating nights for couples and outings that showed the view to their friends and family. Speaking of sights, they are amazing, with the full moon rising at one end and the gleaming Burj Khalifa at the other. The stunning terrace is dotted with large corner sofas, beanbags and long wooden tables.
This concludes our list of top 10 best bars in dubai.
