Hello there! If you guys have me on snap then I am pretty sure at least once you would have seen my snaps after a weekend night and thought "what the hell was she doing?" HAHA! Point is I like going out on weekends - sometimes a little more crazy than usual so I thought why not share some of my fav spots in town that you MUST visit if you haven't already
I cannot begin to express how much I love this place. I am not much of a hip hop or rap girl but the music in this place got me dancing like no other! What I love about this place is that you can be in your kicks and still party hard! In fact being overdressed here isn't what the crowd is like. People are in crop tops and jeans with their snap backs and kicks and twerking to Drake's music
The place isn't massive so be prepared for that. Reservations for a table or a guest list are a MUST - there are times when after 9:30PM they cannot let people in because of how packed it is!
Oh and it closes at 1AM on weekdays and 2AM on weekends

So this is not your party party spot but it is a pretty good place to grab a few drinks and then head out for a party after. I definitely suggest this more for weekends than weekdays because on off days it is literally empty. What I love about this place is their ambience, the music as well as the prices (very reasonable, eg: Single Vodka AED 38-42 for DIFC). Reservations are a must on a weekend night!

Ever since it is revamped I LOVE this place! More than for a night out of drinking I prefer this place for a night where I want to chill, talk to my friends, eat, drink and smoke shisha! Toko on Wednesday's specifically has this amazing deal of unlimited grape for ladies AND 50% off on Shisha! Killer deal if you ask me

La Cantine Du Faubourg
I may not know how to say the complete name of this restaurant/lounge but what I know is this is one of my favorite places in the city! They offer French food so if you are not experimental or are extremely picky with what you eat I wouldn't suggest going here for dinner (although I love the food and more so their Eton Mess dessert)!
BUT BUT BUT dinner or no dinner this place is quite the place to be on a Thursday night. So the lounge area picks up like no other! People are dancing by the couches and the bar, the tunes go old school and it is just a LOT of fun! Wines are more averagely priced than other alcohol and cocktails - but make sure you are well dressed when you go here cuz its all fancy shmancy!

Another place that I quite like - again not for a mad night about but a celebratory evening like a birthday dinner! They have an amazing outdoor terrace where they serve shisha (i hope by now you know I love anything with shisha) and they play good music with some songs from the 80s and 90s - which is always fun! They even have good deals on Entertainer btw
Lock, Stock & Barrel
Its been a while since I went here but whenever I go, I do enjoy! The way to enjoy this place is by making reservations (specially on weekends). Although the place is massive it is always PACKED! Really fun place for a fun night out! Drink till your liver dies out kind of a night
Location: Barsha Heights
I love this place! I may not go often but whenever I have been I have had a good time! So it might be a little expensive but I think it is worth it. If you listen to the songs they play on a Thursday night I bet you would start dancing already. I even love the food here but that is because I am a seafood lover! And their HitMe dessert is to DIE FOR!
They even have these amazing Havana Nights on Monday where they have a live band singing some feet tapping cuban tunes and they even have a few Salsa instructors in the lounge area who are there to have a fun dance with you while teaching some great moves! A few images from my recent below
Another one of those places where they serve shisha haha! If you have been to VII you know they have one of the most stunning terraces <3 So picturesque! To be honest, I find VII quite expensive - regular drinks are for 70-80 bucks and that is a bit much. That is why you should go to VII on a Tuesday lol - because their ladies night offer is MAD - its literally free flowing alcohol (wines and spirits) for ladies from 10PM - 3AM! And the music inside is sure quite party like!

This is not the same Indi as mentioned above. This is a small restaurant in Jumeirah that has this awesome sauce bollywood singer haha! If you know anything about me and my friends then you know we love to sing and hear people sing! #NoJudgementsPlease - Its Indi allows to have that sufi night whenever we wish to! Reasonably priced with shisha served indoors this place is really good if you wish to enjoy some live music and is the guilty pleasure of me and my friends haha!
