Dubai's best bars and clubs

After 12 months spent in hundreds of bars, pubs, clubs and lounges, laughing (or cringing) our way through countless comedy gigs, dancing (and perhaps even twerking) at numerous concerts, club nights and festivals, and scouring the scene in search of the city’s top DJs and entertainment, we reveal the winners crowned at the Time Out Dubai Music and Nightlife Awards 2016.

Divided into four categories – Nights, Events, People and Venues – we’ve taken into consideration atmosphere, service and quality of drinks, as well as value for money, entertainment on offer and the overall experience, to bring you this definitive list of the best nights out Dubai has to offer.
