Bar Crawl Guide: DIFC
It may not seem like there enough establishments for a bar crawl in DIFC, but the truth is, they’re all hiding in plain sight. This is the Dubai International Finance Centre we’re talking about, where else do you think the business people this part of town head to after a long day churning numbers? Whether you’re a part of that crowd, or just looking for a fresh line of venues to tick off your bucket list, our catalogue of trendy bars will put you on the right path. Or crawl.
A prime spot towards the end of the crawl when you and the gang are feeling lively and ready to party. And if you’re not, the walls filled with graffiti, pumping ‘90s tunes and bright red seats will certainly get you in the mood. Where: Currency House, DIFC

Luna Sky Bar
The views here are simply marvellous. If you start the pub crawl early enough, you can catch Dubai’s sunset at this illuminating rooftop lounge, but it comes more alive at night. Sip on one of the venue’s smokey beverages and you’ll be set for the rest of the night. Perfect.

Original Wings & Rings
We say leave this one as your night cap, and we don’t mean drink-wise. The all-American bar has reasonably priced drinks and plenty of TVs playing sports all over the place, but its the wings that you’ll want to tuck into.

Start off classy, that’s what we say. And nothing says that more than swanky drinks and cool music. Zuma ticks both boxes.
