Dubai Nightclubs

Night clubs in Dubai overview

Dubai is famous for its lively night clubs, most of which are located in hotels. The club crowd is mixed, bringing together Eastern and Western nationalities. Most clubs are busiest on Thursday and Friday nights—which are the weekend nights in Dubai—but during the other days of the weeks the clubs have events as well, like ladies’ night. Tuesday is ladies’ night in Dubai, where women enter free of charge and are sometimes offered free drinks or canapes.

Alcohol in clubs

Drinking alcohol within the clubs is tolerated. You must be 21 to drink alcohol in Dubai. Visitors can bring a passport to verify age. Residents of the UAE can bring their Emirates ID card or a driver’s license. Be aware that public drunkenness is taken very seriously in Dubai, and can land you a fine or jai time. Dubai also has zero tolerance for drinking and driving, so be sure to take a taxi home even if you only have one drink.

Dress code

Many clubs have a strict dress code, so be sure to check their website before attending. Party wear is completely acceptable in clubs, for women this includes short dresses and miniskirts. Flip flops are usually not allowed.

Club hours

Club opening hours vary, and they usually close at 3:00 a.m.

Cover charges at night clubs

Cover charges vary from club to club. Sometimes entry is free of charge or can reach up to 200 AED:
