    Sea View Hotel: Best Live Band in Dubai

    by davidpetch Written May 6, 2007

    This Filipino band is by far the best I have seen anywhere in the World. Led by the Female Bass guitarist, who can amaze by playing "Sweet Child O' Mine" behind her head. This lady is a multi-instrumentalist and very pretty. There are 4 female singers who are all pretty. Keyboard, drums and lead guitarist make up the numbers.
    Band kicks off aroun 9.30 and plays until at least 2.30.
    The waitresses find you the best table if you get there before 8pm and are constantly bringing you beers.
    Nothing in Dubai beats this place.

    Dress Code: Smart, casual.
    Trainers and Jeans ok.

    TGI Thursdays: A Pimp's Paradise

    by Ike_2005 Written Jan 1, 2005

    This particular bar was very unique. It seemed like an average bar, but the women inside would latch onto any man coming through the doors. Whispering about how they want to go home with him, and have good sex with him, and anything else to get the guy to take her home. Now I know how women must feel in the clubs back in the United States. It was kind of annoying, but at the same time it was fun to play with their heads, which in the end pisses them off, and they'll leave you alone.

    Dress Code: No dress code that I know of.

    rock bottom or zinc: party time

    by npg Written Dec 13, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    two cool bars to visit are 'zinc' and 'rock bottom' look out for a kiwi/new zealand band called 'solid as' or 'solid az' at rock bottom. i think they will be there again over summer 2005. they really rock and are a very fun band. r'n'b is the go at zinc and the bands there are usually hot. apparently hard to get into if you are a single guy, but have a go anyway. some of the fillipino clubs are great too. there is one down the road from rock is next door to an african club, great bands in there too and great floor show.
    rock bottom is opposite the 'bur juman centre'
    if you are stuck up the other end of town like i was for 4 months then you can try the jebel ali club in the jebel ali village. they sometimes have good bands. last summer 2004 up until ramadan they got in a *** awful polish rock/blues band. (management must take drugs) but before that they had a pumping band from south africa. other wise there is the hard rock cafe and next door in the hotel there is an irish bar that is nice. but if you want a bit of kink then go to the other side of hard rock to 'amnesia' if slinky little arab girls, hulky arab guys or trannies and hookers are your scene then give this place a try :-p they mainly play arabi pop etc but it's worth hangin out there once for the experience :-)

    Dress Code: dress code for rock bottom is neat casual. for zinc it is more strict....neat/trendy/fashion.
    jebel ali club is neat casual, same as hard rock and the irish bar but amnesia is a little more up market, shirt and slacks for the guys.......high heels short skirts for the girls.

    Metroplex: Here is our favorite hangout, if you can call that

    by Faiza-Ifrah Updated Sep 14, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Metroplex is located on Dubai - Abu Dhabi Highway (Shaikh Zayed Road) some 10 kms out of the main city. It has 10 theaters, restaurants, live music area, bar, etc. serving the needs of upscale market segment and is quite popular with foreigners living in the UAE and with the tourists.

    In order to get there, head for Abu Dhabi from Dubai. After 10 kms or so from either Al Maktoom bridge or Garhood Bridge, you will see signboards for the Metroplex and soon the building will pass you by on the other side of the Highway. Keep to your right and take the next exit to the other side of the Highway. As you drive towards Dubai now, keep the speed slow and turn right into the building at the entrance.

    If you are coming from Abu Dhabi, then it will come on your side of the road after 12.5 kms from Hard Rock Cafe.

    At 10 kms from Hard Rock Cafe, there is Oasis Shopping Center that you can stop at to relax a bit. It has good cultural ambiance and affordable shops.

    Dress Code: Any kind of casuals, but not revealing clothes, will do.

    Souks, i.e. local markets: How about shopping in the evening?

    by Faiza-Ifrah Updated Aug 11, 2003

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At least Dubai has plenty of bars, pubs, discos, and night clubs. Other Emirates, especially Abu Dhabi and Sharjah are more conservative. However, for us Souks (traditional marketplaces) and shopping malls are good alternatives. This picture shows ladies interested in shopping for antiques in Dubai. Due to scorching summer heat, the best time to do shopping in the souks is in the evenings.

    Dress Code: UAE is fairly liberal as far as dress code goes. Reason is the tourism, which is explosive in Dubai. Outside of the UK, USA and perhaps Canada now, UAE shows the widest range of dresses.

    The nightlife is centred around the big hotels, they have restaurants and night clubs.

    Saying that there are cafes where you can smoke hookahs and talk late into the night. Obviously you can't get booze in places like that though.
