     Dubai night Life 

 Perhaps it strikingly distinguishes Dubai from others 6 Emirates. Despite of the severity of customs and prevalence of the Muslim population, here all records are broken by quantity of night clubs and bars. Almost weekly, world renowned European DJ’s arrive. They play music of all known and popular styles like house, trance, funky, R*B, Soul, Hip Hop and others. Dress code - no restrictions. The Unique minus for men – they can enter only in pair with the girl, except for days when the entrance is opened for all with tickets, at weak club fallibility in unpopular days, and also if you booked a table in advance (average price -135 dollars, inclusive one bottle of "regular" drink, whether it is whisky, gin or vodka). Also, you will necessarily be asked to show the original identification card with a photo and year of a birth. Age restriction - 21 year. All clubs and bars are opened from 21:00 up to 3 o'clock in the morning.
