Let’s Get Quizzical

We have recently shared our tips and recommendations for a long list of relaxing and indulgent things to enjoy in Dubai. But how about a little gymnastics for the brain for a change? The CitiSpi team love a good brain teaser, so we scouted Dubai for some of the most entertaining and mind-boggling pub quizzes we could find. All in the name of general knowledge!

So get your encyclopaedia ready for a study session, flick on your favourite news channel and read up on the latest celebrity gossip, cause we’re getting ready for a quiz-off!

Nezesaussie Grill, Al Manzil, Downtown

This Aussie, Kiwi and SA themed restaurant and bar challenges you to bring out your competitive side and put your brain to the test to see who emerges a champion! Even if you do turn out to be the weakest link, it’s still a good excuse to mingle with friends and take advantage of their awesome offering of hops and nibbles. This chilled out, yet highly competitive quiz night takes place every Monday night from 8pm – 10pm. 

Girders, JA Ocean View Hotel, JBR

Settle in with your quiz crew at this Scottish themed sports bar every Monday night and tackle categories such as sports, music, celebrities and old school. We bet you can get at least a few right! We are loving the location of this bar as despite rush hour traffic, you can avoid the queues by entering from the Jebel Ali end of the Marina. This quiz night happens every Monday night from 7.30pm – 11pm, so make sure you clear your Tuesday morning schedule!

Underground, Habtoor Grand Hotel, Dubai Marina

Looking for a quiz night later in the week? Get your best friends together and scoot down to the Underground bar at the Habtoor Grand hotel. You guessed it, this bar is themed around the traditional London ‘tube’ system! It’s a fair game here as each team can have maximum four players. The quiz starts at 8.30pm but registration opens from 7pm.

Carter’s, Wafi, Oud Metha

Not to worry, there are some excellent quizzes ‘this end’ of town too! If you’re new to Dubai, this is a great one where you can turn up on your tod and join an existing team. If you however bring a full team of six players, you’ll enjoy 30% discount. This quiz tests you on general knowledge so chose your team mates wisely. This is another Monday night quiz that kicks off at 8.30pm each week.

Dhow & Anchor, Jumeirah Beach Hotel

If you have had enough of ladies’ nights every Tuesday, why not try your hand a pub quiz instead! This is a hugely popular pub quiz that truly tests your genius status, allowing you to push your brain cells to their very limit. The quiz is hosted on their stunning terrace and there are some cool prizes to be won every week as well. Head down early to get ready for kick-off at 8pm.

Do feel free to share your quiz team names with us on social media, we love to hear a good name with pun! We’ll be back again next week with more tips on how to make the most of Dubai.
