Unleash your inner Mariah at one of these…

There’s loads of live music nights to choose from in Dubai, but if you’re wanting to take to the stage yourself, options can be a little limited. We’ve searched high and low for the open mic nights that you can get involved with.

Here’s 4 open mic nights to try in Dubai

The Lion by Nick & Scott

The Lion by Nick & Scott present an open mic night every Friday from 4pm. It’s free for anyone to play – all you need to do is take your own instrument and wow the crowds. You’ll feel like you’re playing at a chilled out pub somewhere as it’s quite intimate – hopefully that’ll calm the nerves a bit.

The Lion by Nick & Scott, H Hotel, Downtown Dubai, open mic night 4pm to late, every Friday, free. Tel: (04) 359 2366. facebook.com/TheLionDubai
