Sensation Club

No need to wait until the weekend to party at this glitzy nightclub in the Crown Plaza hotel on Sheikh Zayed Road. Monday’s R&B night is one of the city’s most popular events, with DJs, entertainment and an extensive cocktail menu. The club also holds dedicated hip-hop, Asian and ladies’ nights, when the bar is free for women before 1am.


Armani/Privé, in the luxurious Armani Dubai hotel in Burj Khalifa, is your classic premiere nightclub – the only difference is that this club’s set in one of the world’s very tallest buildings. Dubai’s best-dressed come out to play here, and they sure know how to party, with nightly sets by resident and international DJs. During fashion season, designers are also known for showcasing couture collections here.

Billionaire Mansion

The name says it all – this is your best shot at partying like a billionaire in Dubai. This restaurant and club, which opened in 2016, is a mix of glitzy dining and drinks and has a party atmosphere. It’s well-loved for the tunes played at its weekly urban night the List, held every Sunday. Make sure you’ve got your best shoes on for this one, so you fit in with the crowd.

Cavalli Club

Cavalli Club is a Dubai icon. It’s been a go-to party destination since 2009, before the city’s club scene really picked up. Expect glamour galore, with low-hanging chandeliers and a well-dressed clientele. Live shows and DJ sets are up for grabs at this award-winning club, and the Italian and international fusion food comes highly recommended.
