Tips and things you have to know about the Dubai nightlife
Dubai is probably really different as the country you live in. There are some rules that you could never have heard of before. Make sure to read the points below before you go here.
- 21+, probably one of the most important thing to know before you decide to book a trip to Dubai. Drinking alcohol in Dubai is only allowed when you are 21+ years old. You can not move into the Dubai nightlife if you are under 21 age. All nightclubs in Dubai are provided with security who definitely check you ID or passport. Make sure that you always take your passport with you when you go to a nightclub.
- Alcohol, the United Arab Emirates is a strictly religious country. The religion in the UAE is Islam, so residents are not allowed to drink alcohol. Dubai and Abu Dhabi are the only two states where alcohol is allowed. Keep in mind that only hotels can offer alcoholic drinks so you won’t find any alcohol in supermarkets or restaurant which are not part of a hotel. Alcohol in Dubai is also very expensive comparing to other countries, this because of the small demand from the local people. One glas of beer/wine can cost like 2 times more than you are used to pay for it. TIP: buy some alcohol when you arrive at the airport in Dubai and bring it to your hotel room. At the airport you can buy alcohol tax free. Only drink that alcohol you bought in your own room and make sure you do not take it outside. Read the next point to know why!
- Public: Drinking alcohol or being drunk in public is strictly forbidden in Dubai. You can be arrested for that, make sure that you move too and from a nightclub by taxi.
- Hotels: Because of the fact that alcohol only can be served in hotel, all nightclubs are located in hotels. Not all hotel do have a nightclub. When you looking for a hotel and want to go for a night out some time, I recommend to look for a hotel with its own nightclub. You can always go to other hotels to party at their nightclub if your hotel does not have its own nightclub.
Tip: People in Dubai (residents and tourists) wants to impress by dressing and smelling well. If you want to meet new people, make sure to dress and smell well too. People will appreciate that. In Dubai you can easily make some new friend during a night out.
