Tackling Dubai’s gents’ nights, plus live music performances

This week’s episode of the Time Out Dubai podcast rolls up its sleeves

What’s wrong with gents’ nights in Dubai? In theory, it’s a fair offering compared to the city’s famous ladies’ nights, with exclusive offers reserved for Dubai’s Y-chromosome carriers.

The reality, though, falls flat, and the Time Out Dubai team tackle the issue head-on. Is it an unnecessary trend or are the offers for gents just uninspired? Is the ladies’ night institution in itself inherently unfair, and would you prefer to have cheaper drinks across the board, rather than a handful of free drinks on selected nights?

Editor-in-Chief Holly Sands is joined by Tim Skinner, Head of Video Content, plus two special guests this week to discuss all of this and the return of a nationwide talent search for the country’s best original musicians.

Stephon LaMar won a Highly Commended award by Time Out Dubai at this year’s Music & Nightlife Awards, as one of the city’s best original acts, which followed up his success as the winner of Project Aloft Star UAE, which identifies and awards the best unsigned acts, with a record deal, pro recording and music video. Stephon is back to talk about this year’s event, alongside 2017 finalist Danny Aridi.

Danny and Stephon talk about the competition, what it’s done for their burgeoning careers as professional musicians, discuss the best places to catch some live music, and even give us a sneak peek at their upcoming single releases.
