Cirque Le Soir

A unique and outrageous night out that has to be experienced at least once
  • +1

Time Out Says

Famous both in London and Dubai for its outrageous shows and quirky dark humour, Cirque Le Soir is one of the most interesting nightspots in the city.

Whether that’s interesting in a good way or otherwise, however, is down to personal taste.

Since having a revamp this summer, Cirque is at its new and shiny best. The space is bright and colourful, and is circussy without being over the top and tacky. The whole thing is designed to wow, and it does that with aplomb.

It’s spacious and clean, and at the far end of the main club there’s a new fairground-style room with a ball pit and other attractions. There’s even an entirely gold bathroom with a disco ball (this is Dubai after all).

In the centre sits a stage, where various acts (which change frequently) are brought in to thrill – and shock – the audience.

Aesthetics aside, if you come to Cirque you probably know what you’re going to get. If you don’t, you’ll be in for a major surprise.

Service is slick, and there’s a bar area away from the main stage if you prefer to chat. The music is good and the club is always busy with people after a fun night out – something that’s always guaranteed.

The dancing and acts are talented, and there’s clearly a lot of thought put in by the team.

This Dubai incarnation is less extreme than its British sister, but it’s still designed to shock. Some will love it, some will feel less than comfortable during some of the acts. If you’re the former you’ll have a top night. If not, you won’t be coming back. Either way, it’s a club you should experience at least once.

The bottom line
Fun, surprising and totally different.
