If you’re looking for a memorable evening out, be sure to visit one of the 15 best outdoor terraces in Dubai.  From bars to restaurants, roof terraces and nightclubs, here are our favourite open-air places to go when the sun goes down.

Dubai is home to some of the most stylish and glamorous nightlife in the world. Temperatures generally don’t dip too much at night time, making open-air venues especially popular. Whether you like to party till the early hours or sip sophisticated cocktails whilst watching the sunset, these are our favourite spots to soak up the atmosphere and spend an evening under the stars…
