11 to try this week

Time Out Dubai - - MUSIC & NIGHTLIFE -

WED­NES­DAY ikandy ul­tralounge

Ad­mire gor­geous views of the Burj Khal­ifa and Down­town Dubai as you slurp up three com­pli­men­tary bev­er­ages and bop around the beats of DJ Babu on this plush rooftop. There’s also 50 per­cent off food with the likes of piz­zas, burg­ers, fish and chips and sal­ads.

→ Wed 7pm-mid­night. Shangri-la Ho­tel, Sheikh Zayed Road (04 405 2703).


Not only do ladies get two free glasses of house grape at Grape­skin on Wed­nes­day nights, you’ll also get a com­pli­men­tary cheese­board with a few sliv­ers of brie, ched­dar, red Le­ices­ter and the like with a hand­ful of crack­ers. The venue is busy with a well-heeled crowd and the vibe is fun but still chilled with the post-work bunch let­ting their hair down. It’s def­i­nitely one of the best bars in the area.

→ Wed 8pm-10pm. La Ville Ho­tel & Suites, City Walk, Al Safa Street (054 309 5948).


There aren’t a huge amount of ladies’ nights that al­low you to see out the end of the week with un­lim­ited drinks, so this is a top choice if you’re look­ing for a post-work wind-down. The newly re­vamped Asian restau­rant at Fair­mont The Palm of­fers ladies free flow­ing drinks from 6pm un­til 9pm ev­ery Thurs­day in the lounge area of the venue. If you’re peck­ish you can also or­der up some nib­bles such as crispy duck buns or tuna tacos. A good start to the week­end if you’re in the area. → Thu 6pm-9pm. Fair­mont The Palm, Palm Jumeirah (04 457 3457).

Dou­ble Decker

This long-stand­ing Down­town pub has

WHAT IS IT... Two free glasses of grape at Grape­skin WHY GO... The com­pli­men­tary cheese board

ev­ery­thing you could ever want from a clas­sic Bri­tish watering-hole and its ladies’ night of­fers up three free drinks. It’s not one for a chic night out, but for a laid-back drink you’d do worse. A healthy dose of nos­tal­gia comes in the form of pop mem­o­ra­bilia from David Bowie as well as The Bea­tles, adorn­ing the en­trance wall, while the stained glass win­dows will re­mind Brits of lo­cals back at home.

→ Thu 8pm-10pm. Roda Al Murooj, Down­town Dubai (04 321 1111).


Cargo has a bustling ladies’ night where ladies get three free drinks in­clud­ing house grape and mixed drinks, though you might have quite a wait at the bar here. Per­se­vere and you’ll be re­warded with a buzzing at­mos­phere and stun­ning views across the ma­rina from the sprawl­ing ter­race onto the still wa­ters be­low.

→ Tue & Fri 8pm-2am. Pier 7, Dubai Ma­rina (04 361 8129).

SATUR­DAY Candy­pants Ladies’ Day Pool Party

Drink, dine and take a dip on the roof of FIVE Dubai Palm Jumeirah with a se­lec­tion of pack­ages ev­ery Satur­day. For Dhs149 ladies get un­lim­ited grape and frozen mixed drinks, for Dhs249 you’ll get the same with a food plat­ter thrown in and for Dhs349 you’ll all that and sparkling grape on top. Gents are wel­come, too, though they’ll have to fork out Dhs399 for the pricier sparkling grape deal.

SUN­DAY Bub­bles Bar

Ev­ery Sun­day ladies get un­lim­ited mixed drinks and sparkling bev­er­ages at Bub­bles Bar from 7pm un­til 11pm. With low lounge chairs scat­tered around the large room and plush leather so­fas around the edges, there’s plenty of space to sit, es­pe­cially as it tends to be a bit on the quiet side. It’s noth­ing spe­cial, but if you’re in the Al Bar­sha area and after a quiet, no-frills bar for those post­work drinks, Bub­bles Bar fits the bill.

→ Sun 7pm-11pm. Novo­tel Al Bar­sha, Al Bar­sha (04 304 9000).

MON­DAY Cavalli Club

For a glam­orous ladies’ night you can’t go wrong with Cavalli. The cool club, from fash­ion de­signer Roberto Cavalli, is su­pertrendy and fun-lov­ing. Drinks are un­lim­ited – and free – and if you’re after a meal then you’ll get three cour­ses for a bar­gain Dhs150 (think plenty of sushi etc). There’s mu­sic from DJ Jack and the night gets live­lier as the hour gets later.

→ Dhs150 (three cour­ses). Mon 8.30pm­mid­night. Fair­mont Ho­tel, Sheikh Zayed Road (050 991 0400).

TUES­DAY Beef­bar

This up­mar­ket steak­house prides it­self on qual­ity meat. Not only that, it has 11 va­ri­eties of mashed potato on the menu. It’s pretty pricey, but on a Tues­day ladies can take ad­van­tage of a spe­cial deal, which will get you two cour­ses from a se­lected menu, plus a bot­tle of grape to share for Dhs195.

→ Dhs195. Tue 7pm-2am. Al Fat­tan Cur­rency House, DIFC (04 352 2223).
