Going out in Dubai

The best tips for going out in Dubai!

Shopping during the day or going to the beach and then a fun night out? Whether you like the trendiest clubs, a relaxed atmosphere in the beach clubs or if you prefer a quiet evening at the cinema or on the promenade: it is all possible in Dubai! For the most vigorous clubbers to families, there are lots of options for a fun night out in Dubai!

Relax around Dubai Marina or Dubai Mall

Many people go to Dubai Marina in the evening, where you will find a promenade of 7 kilometers with numerous restaurants. You can stroll along the promenade and have something to eat or drink, but you won't find real nightlife here. Still you can have a great night out with friends in one of the lounge bars or shisha bars. Also in and around the Dubai Mall it always gets very busy in the evening, because the shops are open until late. You can also enjoy the Dubai fountain and the light show at the Burj Khalifa next to the Dubai Mall. In this area you will find many restaurants with a view on the water, so that you can enjoy the fountain show while eating. This is the ideal option for a romantic night out!

To the cinema in Dubai

If you prefer a quiet night out you can visit one of the cinemas in Dubai. The cinemas are mainly located in the shopping malls and there are quite a few of them in Dubai. You will find a large selection of the latest films from Hollywood, but also from Bollywood in the cinemas in Dubai. The cinemas are modern and you can also go for 4D movies or in some cinemas have food and drinks delivered to your seat. The films are shown in the original language and often subtitled in French or Arabic. Read more about the best cinemas in Dubai and a night out to the movies on our page about cinemas in Dubai.
