Nightlife, Restaurants & Adventure

We have it all

Dynamic Nightspots

Dubai's dynamic nightspots are second to none. From rooftop lounges with unmatched views, to venues for dancing and partying the night away, we've got it all. For a romantic ambience with live music or an in-house DJ, try Nola or Jazz@Pizza Express. Take it into the early hours at the famous White, Gotha Club, Drai's, Cavalli Club and Billionaire Mansion. Whether it's low-key lounging or high-energy beats, Dubai is sure to show you a good time.

Outdoor Dining

From fresh catches and char-grilled steaks to Turkish pide, few places do outdoor dining more innovatively than Dubai. As a city constantly bathed in sunlight, Dubai knows how to enjoy good weather, with the winter months ideal for al fresco eating. Our hippest picks are Aji and Treehouse, while fine-dining outdoors is at its prime at Pierchic. Dubai is also known for rooftop options such as Mercury Lounge, 40 Kong and The Backyard, with awe-inducing panoramic views.


With year-round sun and a dramatic combination of both the desert and beach, Dubai is the perfect setting to be swept away by high-adrenaline activities. Rocket across the Arabian Gulf in a speedboat or roar along the circuit in a race car, skydive over Palm Jumeirah, ski around The World, paddleboard along the coast or swim with dolphins and sharks. You can even leave the city and dune bash in the desert or soar above the sand in a hot air balloon. Fasten your seatbelt, harness or helmet — it’s going to be an exciting ride.

The Dubai Fountain
Witness water dance at the iconic Dubai Fountain, located at the base of the Burj Khalifa. The world's largest choreographed fountain system features a sound and light show which shoots 22,000 gallons of water as high as 150 metres in the air. Each brightly illuminated jet sways in time to music, producing what has become one of Dubai's most popular shows. Situated outside The Dubai Mall, make time to shop between evening water shows, which begin every 30 minutes.

Palm Jumeirah
Gracing the city's postcards, the iconic Palm Jumeirah is an astounding feat of mankind in the form of a series of artificial archipelagos in the emerald waters of the Arabian Gulf. From above, it takes the form of a stylised palm tree. At ground level, it has some of the city's most popular beach clubs, celebrity chef restaurants and luxury hotels such as Atlantis, The Palm. One of the newest attractions here is The Pointe, a waterfront hub for fine dining and shopping experiences.

Dubai Aquarium & Underwater Zoo
The 10 million-litre tank at the Dubai Aquarium is one of the largest in the world, containing more than 33,000 aquatic animals and the largest collection of sand tiger sharks anywhere. Rising to the third floor of The Dubai Mall, the aquarium is home to 140 species of sea life and has several ways to experience underwater life, starting with a stroll through a 48m walk-through tunnel. It's a complete fish-eye view, with sand tiger sharks and stingrays swimming overhead. You can also take a glass-bottom boat tour, get wet in a snorkeling cage and even don an oxygen tank to go swimming with the sharks.
