Downtown

The downtown of Dubai usually means the New Dubai part of the city, which includes the zone that starts from the World Trade Centre and goes along the Emirates Towers, the Burj Dubai area with the Dubai Mall and the Burj Khalifa in the centre. Dubai nightlife here is quite rich and with the metro, you can travel back and forth within the central New Dubai area. Here there are many chances to enjoy the Dubai Nightlife


The thing is that most places of nightlife are located in hotels or business centres. This is because of the normal prohibition of alcoholic drinks to be served, which is not applicable on hotels or international places or establishments. That is why most nightclubs and discos or bars you will find in Dubai within hotels. It is no problem for an outsider to visit another hotels bar or club, usually there are different values of entrance fees but not in every case. Dubai nightlife starts from approximately 22.00H and lasts until 4.00H in the morning, when everything closes down because of law regulations. There is no exception from this rule, not even in the hotels.
