2018 Time Out Nightlife Awards - Bar Of The Year

Dubai’s best nights out are going to be revealed later this month by Time Out Dubai.

After a year of reviewing the city’s best gigs, concerts, ladies’ nights, club nights, DJs, bands and bars the tenth Time Out Dubai Music & Nightlife Awards will soon crown some of the best nightlife options Dubai has to offer.

With the nightlife scene in Dubai reaching new heights, bringing in bigger crowds and hosting bigger DJs every year, the 2019 Awards are set to be the most competitive yet.

Over the course of twelve months, Time Out’s dedicated team of anonymous reviewers goes out en masse every night of the week, to live and breathe the social life of the city, to be on the pulse of what’s happening and where.

Below are is the shortlist for this year’s awards – the nominees from each category – with the overall winners being finally revealed on Wednesday March 27 at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai in Business Bay, followed by a huge after-party at a venue that’s going to be announced very soon.
