Be Scene: The Haute 5 Nightclubs in Dubai

For a city that bursts with a never ending vibrant energy, you’ll find Dubai nothing short of some the hippest and most extravagant night clubs that you’ve ever seen. From interiors splattered in Swarovski crystals to levels of steel cages and catwalks to dance on, these clubs prove that Dubai is a city that refuses to sleep.

Cavalli Club
Just opened last May, the Cavalli Club is Italian fashion designer Roberto Cavalli’s latest lifestyle concept. The stylish venue boasts a capacity of up to 1,500 heads and has been rumored to have cost the region around $30 million just for the interior. Swaroski crystals can be found everywhere splattered on the walls, on the elegant chandeliers, embedded into the black quartz floor and as curtains which swoop down as stunning diving lines between the dining tables and the Cavalli Vodka bottles which confidently assert the designer’s artistic presence.

The Cavalli Club is worth many enjoyable and delectable visits. Cavalli Club is located at The Fairmont Hotel, 04 332 5555.

One of the most exclusive clubs in Dubai, Boudoir has a very hip Parisian feel and attracts mostly a predominantly Lebanese crowd. Different nights host various music genres, all which stop when a bottle of champagne is brought on the floor. Dress your very best to enter this nightclub and try to arrive with a date.

Boudoir is located at the Dubai Marine Resort and Spa, Jumeirah; 04 345 5995.

Club 400
Club 400 can hold exactly 400 occupants in one of the trendiest spots in town. The décor aims to resemble a traditional English dining room complete with extravagant deep purple interiors and gorgeous chandeliers. Try to get on the guest list especially for the most popular nights on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday, and dress to impress, as this place requires your best as well as a full wallet.

Club 400 is located at the Fairmont Hotel Dubai Sheikh Zayed Road; 04 332 4900.

Located on the Palm Jumeirah’s opulent Atlantis resort, Sanctuary was designed by architect Jeffrey Beers. The club boasts of a dramatic décor complete with a sunken dance floor and an atrium-level catwalk with dancers peering onto the many VIP booths below. An adjacent Velvet room and additional VIP tables lit in LED lights come before a separate bar that leads to an outdoor lounge terrace with beautiful oceanic views. Sanctuary goers always return for more.

You’ll be tempted to dance as soon as you venture into Trilogy’s exciting interior. Offering two dance floors and divided into three floors, the décor is a combination of traditional and modern architecture mixed with an overarching Arabic style. Music ranges from hip-hop and reggae to lounge and soul. If you are not much of a dancer, you can actually hang out in the steel cages over the dance floor or head off into the lounge for a more mellow evening. Dress your best, as you’ll find the crème de la crème of Dubai’s social scene at this joint.

Trilogy is located at Jumeriah Beach Road; 04 366 8888
