The UAE has a strict law in place when it comes to partying. From bar timings to dress code and legal age for drinking, here are partying rules in Dubai you must know.
1. Know The Law
Before you head our to let your hair down and hit the floor, it’s always safe to be well-aware of the law. The drinking age in Dubai is 21 (not 18, like in most countries) So, ensure you carry an ID proof to avoid any hassles at the door.
Dubai has zero tolerance for drunken driving. While tourists are free to drink in licensed venues around the city, you cannot drive even with a slight tint of alcohol in your system. Breaking the rule can lead to hefty fines or even imprisonment. So, its best you skip driving for the party and book a cab. In fact, some cafes in Dubai also provide free drop-off after the party.
2. Dress Right
When in Dubai, modesty in key! And that applies to the pubs and bars as well. Pubs in Dubai follow strict dress codes for men and women. Besides, the dress code largely depends on where you are partying. So its best you call the bar or pub and confirm. Always better to be safe than sorry!
Dubai’s bars and nightclubs understand the term ‘partying’ and allow women to leave their jeans back in the suitcase. Bars and nightclubs in Jumeirah and other star hotels permit short skirts, micro minis, and short dresses. Some places also have a policy of letting ONLY the ‘best-dressed’. As for footwear, its always best to wear stilettos, pencil heels or something with heels, as that is a common code followed in most pubs. Earlier in February this year, nightclubs in the city rolled out a heels-only policy to maintain standards.
However, in case you’re going partying to a beach club steer clear of heels and feel free to flaunt your flip-flops. Beach parties are also a perfect occasion to try out that new swimsuit you’ve tucked away in the closet.
And while you can pull off that little black dress without an effort, its worth packing a jacket or a wrap and a pair of comfortable footwear for when you’re back outside. Lastly, if you’re confused or unsure about the dress code, its best you call up the venue to avoid last minute disappointments. Men on the other hand must strictly steer away from casuals. Most pubs in the city encourage men to party in formals – head to toe.
Besides, if you’re game to elevate your weekends and party in a dreamy destination, head to The Lounge at Burj Khalifa.
