Step back in time…

It’s quite a niche experience of sitting in a lounge while enjoying a Cubano and sippin’ on cognac and not many places prescribe to the very 1920s vibe. Nevertheless, Dubai has plenty late night lounges that offer some of the classiest and most exclusive vibes that teleport you back to the roaring ‘20s where late night lounges were a quintessential part of living.

Here are nine of the most exclusive late night lounges in Dubai.
