Arriving straight from London – where Kate Moss, Jay-Z and Beyoncé all partied – Movida set out to be among Dubai’s most exclusive nightlife venues. Close to three years on and it no longer has novelty on its side, but Movida has retained a sense of class and taste. Smaller than much of the competition, there’s an intimacy and attention to detail amid Movida’s sleek purple furnishings and large velvety booths. However that exclusivity, of course, comes at a price. Look out for regular international hip-hop stars dropping by to take the mic. Movida

    It was a very disappointing night. Staff at the door was very rude and impolite and misinformed.
    Visit only if you wish to have your night ruined. Enough places in Dubai's night life to have fun and this is definitely not one of them.

    I went to Movida on 2nd March with the girls to celebrate my birthday. I was looking forward to checking out a new venue and hoped it would be a great night. Unfortunately I was really disappointed from the moment of entering the club. It was really empty and there were far too many staff we felt as though we were constantly being watched for the wrong reasons! The final straw came when the door girl came up to one of my friends and said, "how did you get in here?" Absolutely unacceptable rudeness on her part! I will definitely not be returning to this club and I suggest to anyone wanted a great night out in a fun place where you can relax and have a good time to avoid this place too!

    The best party in Dubai, I ever had. Place is amazing, people are good looking and stylish. Music is great. Atmosphere even better.. Can't wait the weekend to go there again..
