Which Bars & Beach Clubs are open mid July?

Hi All,

So i didnt realise that a lot of places are either closed or will be closing for 'maintenance' during the 'english' summer period. I will be going Tuesday - Sunday with my partner and we are staying at the Madinat. I wanted to go to Shimmers for lunch there but its closed.

Please can you recommend some nice bars & beach clubs to go to for drinks and day time - I was thinking of visiting some of the following:

The Penthouse at Five Palm, At.Mosphere, Zero Gravity, El Chiringuito, Drift Beach Club

The others which I believe are closed are Nasimi Beach, Blue Marlin, Drais>

Advice please :)

Generally most outdoor venues are closed in July and August because it is far too hot and humid for anyone to be there or work there- if you select something indoors such as At.Mosphere then it will still be open .

Beach clubs that have a pool will still tend to be open and at night you will want to be indoors.

Thanks Latimer, I understand it is hot however I live in Auckland where humidity is 85 - 90% in the summer so i'm used to that.

Are there any nice bars you would recommend, i know you are a regular on the dubai posts :)

Thanks

Check out Barasti beach in Meridien Mina Seyahi.

Bidi Bondi on the palm trunk

Club Vista Mare has nice bars on the beach (Tap House, Breeze and Ahi)

But as mentioned it will be very hot and humid

Hi

Would recommend Barasti and bidi bondi

However even these places are not fully beach since during summer months the outside seating is removed and they restrict themselves to an air conditioned area.

Expect the temperature to hit the high 40s during summer months and at night time the temperature will be in the 40s or in the 38deg C range.

"...I live in Auckland where humidity is 85 - 90% in the summer"

I've only encountered humidity like that in Singapore. The humidity is nowhere near that here in Dubai. Nevertheless it is hot owing to high temperatures, and people don't sit outside much.

Barasti is very popular but it is not quite the same in summer months; certainly as regards the outdoor seating. It is sometimes more humid at night, but stays hot in any event, and it will be difficult to find outdoor venues.

Perhaps you haven't been to Auckland in January and February? This is the worst country i have been for humidity and i have traveled extensively, South East Asia, Philippines, Mexico, Vegas. I also googled the humidity in those countries at the time and this was the worst.. .My dehumidifier also gave me readings of 94% in the summer. I'm not worried about the heat, I lived in Australia for 2 years.

Thanks for all your recommendations, i will check them out and write a trip report when im back :)

Much appreciated.

Unfortunately whether you can stand the heat and humidity is irrelevant as outdoor venues close throughout the summer months

June isn't as bad as July/August for heat and humidity and you may well tolerate it as I don't find June that bad but outdoor terraces and beach clubs wind down regardless

Some places have their outdoor sections open for some of June but they'll be closing shortly and re-opening Sept

Most places you mention such as Barasti or Zero Gravity will still be open and quite busy but it'll be more geared towards indoors

I think you’ll only be able to comment about whether or not the heat and humidity in Dubai will bother you when you’ve been !

They close the terraces for a reason. Some stay open and some have outside air conditioning units but it’s still not pleasant
