5 best places in Dubai to wear flip flops
There’s nothing worse than heading out for a big weekend in Dubai, rocking up at a bar and being refused at the door because your feet are on show. It’s the weekend, people, our dogs start yapping if we stuff them into fancy shoes all week long. Worry not, as there are quite a few spots in the city that welcome all kinds of flip flops – from the easily slipped on sandals to the thongs (the Australian way of saying things). It’s time to slip on your slip-ons...
Is it a beachfront venue? A sports bar? A club? Who knows, but we are 100 percent sure that no matter the occasion, people can always wear flip flops at Barasti. It has it’s own stretch of beach, so what else would this buzzing place expect you to wear?

In Ireland, you’d probably get frost bite on your toes for wearing flip flops anywhere. So when there’s a slice of Ireland in Dubai, where the sun always shines, of course the Irish Village will allow slippers – it’s a rare luxury the Irish hardly get back home. An all-round favourite.

The Eloquent Elephant
Don’t let the name fool you – the beast may be eloquent, but its venue is a complete abode of chillness. Lounge on its comfy couches (shoe-free) and enjoy those skyline views.

The Tap House
Part cosy gastropub, part beachfront bar, all parts relaxing. Club Vista Mare may have plenty of venues with a slipper-friendly vibe, but none will also have hops on tap from around the world.

We mean, it’s already hard enough to beat a place with its own bowling alley, second-floor arcade and huge outdoor terrace with its own surf machine. Add on the fact you can rock up in the most comfortable footwear? Win.
