The best nights out in Dubai this week
So. Many. Ladies’. Nights…
Most of us are enjoying a long weekend (or at least an extra few days off) this week, which means there’s extra room for packing in partying.
Whether it’s buy one get one free drinks all night at a Media City hotspot or a week of ladies’ nights at a Downtown super club, we’ve rounded up the top nights out in Dubai this week.
Tuesday: Mr Miyagi’s
