Get excited! Try Dubai is back and here’s why you need to get involved…


The UAE’s best activity fair is back on February 9, so say goodbye to your comfort zone and try something you’ve never done before…

Want to meet the clubs and groups that make Dubai awesome?

Of course you do! So we’re taking over Barasti Beach Club again on February 9 for the second annual Try Dubai – the UAE’s first official gathering for groups, sports clubs and active brands.

Similar to a Fresher’s Fair, the free entry event hosts the city’s most popular clubs and groups, from yoga shalas and sports clubs, to comedy troupes and active apps, and brings them all together in one glorious location.

So what does that look like? Well here’s how our first ever Try Dubai went down last year…

It’s undoubtedly a great opportunity to learn more about the coolest teams in town and find out how to join them for less.

And that’s not all. At Try Dubai, you’ll be able to try out some of the clubs right there in Barasti, before signing up to any membership. Think flywheel classes by the beach, meditation at sunset or paddleboarding out to sea. You name it, and we’ll probably have it set up at Try Dubai.

Plus, if you fancy getting involved, run a club we need to know about or your part of a team that would love a new member or two, drop us a line – tables are selling fast and we’d love to see you there. For more information email Laura Coughlin at

So mark the date in your diary, and we’ll see you at Barasti! 

Try Dubai, Barasti Beach, Dubai, 11am to 5pm, Friday February 9, free. Tel: (04) 427 3000. Taxi: Barasti Beach
