Best Men's Night in Dubai - Guest Review by Lil One Of The Ashes

Liloneoftheashes is based in Dubai, and writes about the many ways to enjoy the luxuries that the UAE has to offer without breaking your wallet. Originally from Malaysia and having spent the latter part of life in New Zealand, she enjoys the occasional ladies’ night and plans a lot of the events within her social circle - from brunches, dinners and nights out to afternoon teas and getaways within the region and afar. 

In line with CitiSpi's theme, the blog focuses mainly on just that - that living here in the UAE does not have to be expensive, you can go out and socialise and have a great time, on a budget.

If you think that it's only girls that gets the perks here in Dubai, you're wrong! Quite a few places does a similar concept to 'Ladies Nights' - known as....... you guessed it - 'Gentlemen's Night'. Free drinks for men? Doesn't make any sense, does it? Ha, not when you're in Dubai. In honour of prostate cancer awareness month, here's a round up of the best men's nights in Dubai, available in the Citispi app. You just might see a few men spotting a good mo' this November. 


Pure Sky Lounge & Dining, Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort

Located on the rooftop of the Hilton in Jumeirah Beach Residences, Pure Sky Lounge provides an idyllic outdoor setting to chill over drinks, especially now that winter has begun. A perfect spot to watch the sunset, or the night-lights of The Beach, we have been to Pure Sky for their famous evening brunch, as well as their very busy ladies night. Now they host a gentlemen's night every Wednesday, with gents being offered 2 complimentary Jameson Irish Whiskey mixers between 9:00 pm-11:00 pm


The Observatory, Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel and Suites

Within minutes walk from our home, The Observatory is our 'neighbourhood' restaurant/bar, with yours truly having been to their ladies nights on many occasions.  Located on the 52nd floor of the Dubai Marriott Harbour Hotel and Suites in the Dubai Marina, the Observatory offers picturesque views of the Palm Jumeirah as well as the marina itself. On Tuesdays, gents pay AED 29 for 3 house beverages - what a steal! Alternatively, you can round-up the boys and share a 1200g Tomahawk steak and a bottle of house grape for only AED 399!


Al Grissino, Dubai International Financial Centre

Having been to Al Grissino just once for their Thursday evening brunch, we had a peek at their sky lounge then and made a mental note to return. Gorgeous lounge overlooking the Burj Khalifa and beyond, Al Grissino offers 4 drinks for only AED90+ every Monday from 7:30pm-11:00pm. This includes house pouring wines as well as a selected beers, and 25% off cigars. Perfect for those who work in the DIFC, for an after work drink (or four!). 


Hunters Room & Grill, The Westin Dubai Mina Seyahi 

To complete a proper gentlemen's night, you need a good piece of steak, and that's what Hunters Room & Grill offers. I have been there for dinner and can vouch that they do their steaks well. Called the "Hunters Gentleman's Agreement", gentlemen can enjoy 50% off their meat cuts or their bottle of wine at Hunters Room & Grill every Tuesday after 7:00pm. Wouldn't it be great to send your man here whilst you put on a nice dress and head off to ladies nights as well? Just a thought!


Piano Lounge, JW Marriott Hotel Dubai

I know that high tea is not synonymous with men, but let's keep an open mind with what is offered here at the Piano Lounge. Offered everyday between 4:00pm-8:00pm, men have a choice of bottle or draught brew along with a hearty selection of savoury, stick-to-your-ribs fare to satisfy that afternoon craving no scone with strawberry preserves ever could! And yes, it is called the 'Gentlemen's High Tea'! Reasonably priced at AED95 for food and one soft beverage, or AED125 for food and a pint of brew.
