Dubai's best date night bars
You’ve gone and done it. You’ve finally found someone to head out with to all the lovey-dovey spots around the city you’ve been missing out on. Not to say you can’t head to these spots anyway, but they’re that much better with a special certain someone. Whether you’re a sucker for that iconic Dubai sunset or need a mini-escape from the city for a little alone time, these lovely spots are keen to make you say “aw shucks.”
A starry-eyed night awaits.
