Clubbing for under 25...

Me and my sis are going to Dubai with friends and would also like to see some of the nightlife. We're all between 19 and 22. There are rumours that most clubs have a strict over-25 only policy... What is true about that and where would you recommend to go for 18-22 year old? Is it possible to enter bars if you're under 21? Would be glad about any kind of experiences, informations, facts, names places... THX

I asked this question a couple of months ago since I'm taking my sons who will be 20 and 21 to Dubai in a month or two. You have to be 21 to get into clubs in Dubai and 21 for many of the bars too even if you aren't drinking alcohol. Not what you want to hear I know.

It's 21 and over in ALL bars. Asking where we would recommend isn't a good idea unless you tell us what kind of music you like. Just stating your age doesn't help us because everyone of all ages goes to all clubs here. It's more split by nationalities, types of music you like rather than age. Incidentally, to the person who wrote about Zinc, it's closed down now!

Is that prior to reopening as something else or closed down completely ?

It's completely closed down. They will refurb and reopen with a new name after September. Meantime, they have opened a temporary venue in the hotel and I saw they were advertising DJs from Kinky Malinky, etc., so I guess it's more "clubby" if you know what I mean. Dubai changes its allegiances so quickly that places don't last that long anymore.

Been asked for ID once - showed him a credit card and got in.

That was down here in AD though...far far more stricter in Dubai though. If the CID do surprise visits and underage people get caught in there the bars get fined about AED30,000...

FYI: New club opening in Dubai on 31st August - Miami Calling

Never heard of an over 25's only policy anywhere though.
