Fancy a drink in one of the most amazing cities in the world? Whether you want to relax with a glass of red wine in a rooftop lounge with a scenic view, or sip your favourite artisan cocktail under a beachside canopy, Dubai has a lot of excellent spots where you can enjoy that luscious spirit.

Despite the city being under the Sharia Law, you can still drink alcohol in Dubai as long as you’re in a place that’s licensed to serve alcohol. But you must be fully aware of your limits because alcohol-induced behaviour or mischief is not tolerated and can land you in jail. Nonetheless, Dubai, with its top-rated bars, is still a nightlife hot spot.

If you’re in Dubai, check out these places and hangouts where you can enjoy a drink or two:

Pure Sky Lounge & Dining at The Walk, Jumeirah Beach Residence

No wonder the reviews on TripAdvisor are positive for Pure Sky Lounge & Dining. This chill-out lounge occupies the 35th floor of the Hilton Dubai Jumeirah Resort, allowing its guests to revel in the breath-taking beauty of the Arabian Sea from the terrace. But there’s more to this place than the views; it’s also known to serve some of the tastiest cocktails in the whole of Dubai! Best of all, it’s Ladies Night every Tuesday and it’s a grand feast for those who want free drinks from 9-11 pm.
