Famed for its exclusive clubs and numerous celebrity sightings, Dubai’s nightlife has transformed in the last few years with an influx of high class, sophisticated London brands claiming their patch.
Read on to discover the top 5 celebrity hotspots:
- Cirque Le Soir
This eclectic nightclub is a circus themed extravaganza, located in the world’s only 7* hotel, the Burj Al Arab. A unique experience, the club will see you come face to face with snake charmers, clowns, contortionists and many more weird and wonderful performers. An export from London, this addition to the chain has instantly equalled the reputation of its predecessor and boasts an endless string of famous visitors, including Nicole Scherzinger, Usher and Lady Gaga. But beware; this is only suitable for seasoned creatures of the night.
- Cavalli Club
If you’re looking for style and sophistication, Cavalli Club was opened in partnership with designer Robert Cavalli, and his influence shows in its flawless décor. Akon, Will Smith and Boy George have all been sighted partying here. Not only is it a celebrity hotspot, but it offers an exquisite dining experience set with indoor waterfalls, leopard print chairs, and chandeliers. You will also be treated to incredible cocktails, while world-class DJs entertain.
- Sunset Lounge Bar at Madinat Jumeirah
One of the most impressive complexes in Dubai, the Madinat Jumeirah surrounds its guests with beautiful architecture, elegant waterways and picturesque gardens. With over 40 bars, lounges and restaurants, each with a different theme and location, the complex has attracted the likes of George Clooney, Nicolas Cage and Ben Affleck. For a more relaxed night in Dubai, be sure to visit the Sunset Lounge Bar, where you can overlook the Arabian Gulf whilst sipping champagne and cocktails.
Perhaps one of the most exclusive and fashionable clubs to hit Dubai is Movida. Its famous London counterpart has entertained countless A list celebrities, including Jay-Z, Paris Hilton and Princess Eugenie of York. And its Dubai namesake does not fail to disappoint. With solely table service, no bar, and its privately lit dancefloors, the club has attracted numerous famous faces, including Amir Khan and Lady Victoria Hervey. The only problem posed by this club is for the average person, getting on the guest list might be tricky; with one glass walkway entrance reserved for “extra-special VIPS”, and the other entrance operating a strict door entry policy; don’t expect to be welcomed with open arms.
- Skyview Bar
The Skyview Bar is the perfect location to impress. With unparalleled, panoramic views of the city 200 metres above sea level, here you can truly relax in style. It is located within the Burj Al Arab, and boasts an impressive circular bar, sophisticated furnishings and live music. Here, cocktails are not just a drink but an art form, and mixologists take pride in producing the perfect drink. The hotel’s glitz and glamour has seduced celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Roger Federer and Rory McIlroy. This is a once in a lifetime experience, not to be missed.
This is only a small sample of the night time delights that await you in Dubai. Take to the streets yourself to explore the wonders of the lavish partying scene, and be sure to take your camera; you never know who you might bump in to.
