With a name like Toy Room Dubai, you might be expecting to be confronted with an adult-sized ball pool or giant Lego maze when you arrived at this club. But the only toy-like feature is a man dressed as a giant teddy bear known as Frank, the club’s mascot. The club plays R&B and hip-hop, with the occasional house night thrown in. Low leather sofas and tables are dotted around the club and take up most of the space, while a DJ booth takes centre stage. For anyone who feels claustrophobic in small spaces, Toy Room may not be for you. With each of the tables practically on top of each other, it’s hard to tell which guests are with who. This does, however, create a lively and fun atmosphere for clubbers who like to mingle. With most of the space occupied by tables, there is little room to dance, and only a small area next to the bar for those who haven’t forked out the cash for a private area. Drinks are pretty standard, with mostly shorts on the agenda from about Dhs55 upwards. It can take a while for the crowd to warm up here, but when they do, there are bodies everywhere, dancing on sofas, and the table/non-table barrier is quickly broken down. It’s safe to say that Toy Room is no place for kids.
