Cirque Le Soir

Expect startling entertainment at this circus-inspired nightclub

  • Hip-Hop Chic (Monday)

    DJs Shef Codes, Masterstepz and Bliss on the decks. Free.
    Timings: 10.30pm-3am

A night in Cirque Le Soir is a night like no other in Dubai – if you can get in. When we arrive at 11.30pm on a Friday night, the queue is fairly short, but we’re swiftly informed that only couples and groups of women can enter, but for a hefty Dhs500 minimum spend each at the bar, the two men in our group will be allowed in, too. The hostess on duty is less than friendly, and could really do with working on her welcome.

Once inside, we’re greeted by the novel sight of a children’s ball pool, filled with laughing, selfie-snapping ladies. The club is kitted out like a circus, with podiums for dancers scattered around the venue, and there’s a real party atmosphere. That said, the space caters mainly to guests with tables, leaving little room to dance or move around for those with general entry.

Every inch of the place feels like a circus, with the words “freak show” clearly marked on the walls – and freaky it is. Throughout the night, fire-eaters, raucous drummers and a huge cake-eating man take over the stage, with bewildering, but entertaining performances.

Overall, a night here is one to remember and pretty over the top, and there’s always something different going on. We just don’t think we have the cash to run away with the circus just yet.

The bottom line A night of outlandish, if a little pretentious, entertainment. Cirque Le Soir

    Would you go back to this bar/club?
    Best for:
    I love going to Cirque, and have been going since 2014; however, the new host that has been working there is very disrespectful and has no hospitality skills whatsoever.
    A couple of weeks ago, i was rejected along with my girlfriend to enter the club after waiting for an hour and a half in the walk-in que saying that the club is too packed on a Week day. Despite explaining to the host, he continued to reject, while allowing single ladies to enter.
    Management should hire professional and Respectful Host/Hostesses.

    Ps; I suggest he stops wearing extra tight and short, shorts under a blazer along with his bowtie.

    How many tables could you guys possibly have to not let people enter without a damn reservation? Turned away 7 hot girls for nothing. Something is really wrong with those guys at the entrance and not letting people enter without reserving a table for a whopping 5000 dirhams.

    Hello. I'm writing to say that this place is full of security guards who make you go off the slightly elevated platforms they have in the club. The music is from television namely from MTV dance channel. The place could be interesting for those under 16 as it has something to offer to the under aged. I, having been to other places of dubai, will never go to the Cirque du soir because my experience was a waste of time and it was really disappointing. Valeria Lapina.
