Time Out Says

Once you enter the mysterious, dark interiors of Movida Dubai, it’s easy to forget which part of the city you’re in. While some elaborate venues stand out with their elaborate chandeliers, there are others, like Movida, that seem to be undergoing an identity crisis.

Despite being a core player in London’s garage and hip-hop scene in the noughties, Movida still has a long way to go as far as its sister club in Dubai is concerned. While it attempts to mirror the sophistication that’s synonymous with St. Tropez and the urban music scene of London’s Shoreditch, Movida in this part of the world fails to get out of its pretentious bubble. Ladies in sky-high Jimmy Choos and Hervé Léger bandage dresses shimmy around the dancefloor, while flush party-goers shell out on bottles that require sparklers (which do the rounds of the venue frequently).

The popular nightclub has quite a relaxed door policy, so those Choos aren’t necessarily needed. Guys should still arrive in mixed groups, though, to avoid potential disappointment.

If you’re looking to boogie, plan your evening wisely, as the playlist switches up nightly. If you get it right, you might just have a smashing night.

The Bottom Line

Get the right day if you want a good night.
