Rock Bottom Café
Area: Bur Dubai, Dubai
Rock Bottom Café is actually the best place to go if you want an insane night out. Rock Bottom is a Dubai institution, and a sure thing—good fun, perfect for groups, and great for going casual and letting your hair down.
There’s karaoke for prizes, and the regular music is seriously cheesy—the live Filipino band is a corker (they even take requests). The three rooms address all the most important aspects of a good night out: dancing, pool tables, and food. Best not to get there too early, as the action typically kicks off when other bars are winding down for the night. Described by some as the Dubai initiation for all newcomers, many agree that it’s the backbone of a solid night out—everyone should hit Rock Bottom sometime.
