This casual dance bar and lounge is the perfect antidote to the über-exculsive club scene in Dubai. No need for advance reservations and sky-high heels at this spot – just show up in your casual-chic outfit, preferably with comfortable shoes (not sneakers, mind) and dance the night away to the fantastic pop and dance beats. While the crowd is not the most stylish in the city and the ambience not as sleek as at the typical Dubai club, it’s refreshing to be able to just show up and enjoy a bop with a group of your pals without the stress of prepping ahead. There’s also a cigar room tucked away at the back with eclectic seating and an interesting crowd, all puffing away on vintage and limited-edition Cuban and South American cigars from custom-made humidors. Blends is definitely a welcome contrast to the often painfully stylish nightlife in the city.
