    Dhow Boat Cruise: A Magical End To Our Trip

    by easterntrekker Written Feb 4, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We booked this trip with Arabian Adventures , online. There are lots of companies offering similar cruises. There are two levels onboard for seating , we had the lower level and I am happy we had a lovely table for two window seat. The night skyline was beautiful with all the building and boats themselves with colorful lights .There were even fireworks although I don't know what the occasion was. A glass of wine was included and the buffet was surprisingly good with lots of choces. I really hadn't expected it to be that good. We crusied for about two hours and were dropped off just before 11PM at our hotel .I thought this was a nice way to end our short visit to Dubai.

    The Free Fountain Show: Dancing Fountains

    The Fountain Show

    This was amazing . The fountains dance to music and even lights on the B. Kahlleifa keep the beat. There were free shows every 30 minutes in front of the Dubai Mall. It can be seen from anywhere along the outside of the Mall or you could watch it from one of the cafe restaurants that line the plaza. We caught two shows .I think our best vantage point was from the bridge

    Zinc: Zn chemically speaking is Zinc!

    by Escadora7 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Another night in Dubai and another good reason to party ... who needs a weekend!?! So the four of us; Dan, Michelle, Eva and me drive down to the Crowne Plaza to get a slice of some different fun ... The type where we have a band invloved!

    Zinc has received many awards such as the "Whats on Magazine, 'Best Nightclub' Award" for 2003 and 2004. As expected, there was a long line outside. What was really funny though were the 'Gatekeepers', gently pushing aside a few others (couples included) to usher us smilingly through. Go Figure! It's about AED 50 a couple cover charge, though they didn't really charge us to enter that night. Singles of course have a tougher time getting in.

    The place was packed to the brim, filled with a lot of beautiful and drunk people; the energy was pumped; The Canadian 7-piece band called Earthbeat rocked! There's a mix of a DJ and a band; both playing some terrific music. Of course we obliged and scorched the dance floors a bit. The drinks might be on the expensive side compared to some of the other clubs but who's complaining.

    A few drinks, some excellent music, great company and life is PERFECT! What else could one ask for? Oh well, a cosy bed to get home to after a hard nights dancing I guess.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Some nights are tuned up with the Laughter Factory, a stand-up comedy bunch currently featuring the likes of Mike Gunn, Reginald D. Hunter and Ian Stone from The Comedy Store, London. This doesn't come cheap though at AED 95,
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


    Dress Code: Zinc has a very stringent entry code. The more fashionable the better! Smart casuals for the guys, lose the keds though chaps!

    Women as usual could get away with anything. I have a feeling though that they'd pretty much dress up anyways for a night at Zinc.

    Clapham Junction in the Rush Inn: Rock at Clapham Junction

    by Escadora7 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clapham Junction is a casual Rock 'n' Roll bar, features live music, and offers a dance floor. It's nothing fancy, but provides the setting for down-to-earth fun and letting your hair loose.

    We spent New Years Eve 2003/2004 and danced the night away. The band was great doing covers from the complete spectrum of R&R.

    Opening Hours 6pm-2am
    Serve Alcohol

    Note: The do offer different types of music on different nights, so make sure and call ahead to find out about the theme of the evening.

    Dress Code: totally casual.

    the best place to be here in Dubai if you're looking for an all-out fun evening. no dress code, come as you are although you will still see a lot of people dressed in party clothes. the drinks are priced reasonably. you have an option of lounging on one of the beach-seats right on the sand or there's also a bar upstairs which normally has a one-man band show. :) try going there on a tuesday for salsa night.....

    Dress Code: no dress code.

  • Century Village: Century Village

    by galatea234 Written Jan 6, 2010

    The place is superb. Lots of restaurants and bars to choose from including the fact that Irish Village is literally just around the corner. It is a good place to have al fresco dining specially if it's cold, they also have fans all around the place during summer. It's a one-stop-shop, every cuisine that you might be craving can be found here. Shishas are served as well. Prices vary depending on which restaurant/bar you go to.

  • Rockbottom Cafe: Rockbottom Cafe

    by galatea234 Updated Jan 6, 2010

    i have frequented this place when i was new here in Dubai, during that time when they haven't imposed the entrance fee yet. the drinks were priced reasonably and the food isn't that bad either. the live bands are also very good. most of my american friends like this place because of the pool table area that they have. what's so great about it? they serve free pizza at 3am. :)

    i haven't been there for a very long time now and was surprised to read a lot of negative reviews about the place being racist and discriminatory. all the "white" people will be exempted from the entrance fee but all the others will have AED100 or worst yet, will not be let in.

    by galatea234 Updated Jan 6, 2010

    performer-wise - it's the most decent filipino bar in Dubai (ignore the fact that it's flanked by a lot of non-filipino prostitutes). they serve the best filipino foods as well. try the lechon kawali, crispy pata and sisig - all those cholesterol-rich foods famous in the philippines. prices are very reasonable too. they charge an entrace fee though by 10pm i think.... they have really good perfomers as well - unlike the horrendous ensemble of the performers in Rocky's (another filipino club in Deira).

    if you're not up for a live band and would rather have a quiet dinner, the place offers a large area of al fresco dining. shisha is served as well.

    Dress Code: come as you are.

    i never really liked the place since the first time i went there. but i have to give them credits for the songs they played that night, it was good until they started playing arabic songs and people singing with it and i don’t understand a word. i felt left out. i think i have to learn arabic. but for sure, the place would really be loved by arabic shindig prince/princesses, since they will be able to understand the DJ. hehe i have nothing against it, just don’t understand a word they say. and well the crowd – hmmmm doesn’t really pleased my eyes as well. :p BUT it’s the only club that i’ve been to which the bouncers doesn’t really care if you’ll be on top of their tables gyrating like a fool, no they won’t ask you to get down – which i think is good. you can practically do whatever you want, if only i can understand the DJ, i might actually enjoy it. hehehe.
