All the best nights out in Dubai this week
Bingo, beach clubs, brunch and post-brunch parties are all waiting for you…
The new season is kicking off this weekend, which means there’s some brand new parties to get stuck into, as well as some old favourites you just can’t afford to miss.
So we’ve rounded up all the must-hit parties in Dubai this week, from poolside to after brunch house parties.
Thursday: Bongos Bingo
It’s the final installment of Bongo’s Bingo at Media One’s ON42 this Thursday. Sadly if you don’t already have a ticket for Dubai’s nuttiest night you’ve missed out – they’re already sold out. For those lucky ticket holders, expect rounds of bingo broken up with impromptu raves, dancing on the table, chanting, cheering, crowd karaoke and some hands-in-the-air anthems that have many dancing on the tables by the end of the night.
Media One Hotel Dubai Media City, 8pm to late, Thursday August 30, Dhs100. Tel: (056) 895 7532. Facebook.com/BongosBingoDubai
Thursday: 7 Sisters
This Business Bay lounge briefly opened it’s doors for a short season before closing for summer earlier this year, but from this Thursday August 30 it’s back.

Friday: The House Party Bar
Everyone seems to be talking about The House Party Bar, and with good reason. With its kitch ’90s decor, a soundtrack to match, and all the novelty items you’d find at a college frat party, this retro Downtown bar has brought exactly what Dubai was missing. On Fridays they want to douse you in nostalgia with an unlimited drinks package between 4pm to 8pm for just Dhs200 where you can indulge in classic fun things from our favourite decade including Nintendo, beer pong and a whole lot of Britney.
