Area: Jumeirah Beach, Dubai
Sunk in the depths of Souk Madinat Jumeirah, dark wooden interiors and dim lighting help create just the right ambience for Jam Base, arguably the best jazz/soul/funk/fusion bar/club in town. It’s intimate and perfect for dancing. Always busy, but always welcoming.
The food doesn’t disappoint, either, and in the winter it’s a joy to get there early for dinner, sit out on the terrace and enjoy the live music, then head inside for drinks and dancing. Friday nights are especially packed at Jam Base – arrive early.
