Best Beach Clubs / Dayclubs in Dubai 2019

Whether you’re a local to Dubai or just visiting for the weekend – check out our list of the hottest beach clubs and pool parties in Dubai!  From family friendly pools, to sunbathing spots, to high energy ragers, we’ve got a little bit of something for everyone.

Drai’s Beach Club Dubai (DXB)

Although not by a beach, Drai’s Beach Club Dubai deserves a mention for being one of the city’s best spots for a big party by the pool. Open on Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays, the pool club features beds, cabanas and even private jacuzzi’s, with each day is dedicated to a different activation. On Tuesdays, head down for 11am to enjoy their ‘Hot Mess’ ladies day, while on Friday, expect a day-to-night champagne spray party complete with spray countdown, urban setlist and an A list star or two. Saturdays are their weekly party brunch, where UK brand LoveJuice takes over for five hours of free flowing food and drink.

Drai’s Beach Club, Gate B, Meydan, Dubai, 11am to 9pm, Tues, Fri and Sat, ladies entry from Dhs100, guys entry from Dhs200. Tel: (052) 388 8857. draisdxb.com

Nikki Beach Dubai

The luxury beachside destination features in-water loungers, Jacuzzis, inflatables and spans across an impressive site on the Pearl Jumeirah that leads out onto the beach. If you’re hungry, you can order one of their signature sushi and ceviche boats, which arrives, as you’d expect, on a wooden boat. It’s a bold swimwear affair, with dancer, musicians and resident DJs.

Nikki Beach Dubai, Pearl Jumeirah, daily 11am to 9pm, Dhs150 per person (with a Dhs100 food voucher) weekdays, Dhs300 per person (with a Dhs250 food voucher) weekends. Tel: (04) 376 6162. nikkibeach.com

Cove Beach Dubai

Now open in a new location, you’ll find an upgraded Cove Beach at the new Caesar’s Palace Bluewaters Dubai. Inside there are three pools and two restaurants across split levels, as well as a shisha terrace and access to a private beach. There’s a new rotation of weekly day and evening events including live music from local band Cubache on a Monday from 2pm, and ladies’ day every Wednesday. Entry is free but comes with a minimum spend of Dhs150 through the week, and Dhs300 on weekends.

Cove Beach, Caesars Palace Bluewaters Dubai, Bluewaters, off JBR, daily 10am to late, min spend Dhs150 weekdays, Dhs300 weekends. Tel: (050) 454 6920. covebeach.com

Soho Beach

Again not found by the beach, but this sleek new party spot is equally worthy of a shoutout. Like it’s neighbouring Drai’s, Soho Beach opens for its ladies’ day on a Tuesday, as well as on Fridays and Saturdays for two poolside brunches. Keep your eye on social media with this place, Soho Beach transforms into a huge events space for festivals several times a year – and they’re some of the city’s most unmissable parties.

Soho Beach, Meydan, Dubai, 12pm to 11pm, Tues, Fri and Sat. Tel: (052) 433 3375. sohobeach.com

Azure Beach Dubai

Perfectly positioned on the JBR beachfront is Azure. It’s got an expansive pool at the centre, as well as an adjacent lounge for enjoying a relaxing lunch. All guests are given access to the beach in the entry price, which has been discounted over the festive season to Dhs100 from Sunday to Thursday, and Dhs200 on Friday and Saturday.

Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE

Blue Marlin is a stalwart among Dubai’s party hard beach clubs. Opening on Fridays and Saturdays each week, entry is free if you’re either dining, or on guestlist for their Friday day-to-night party, which regularly flies in international acts to headline. On Saturdays, Blue Marlin hosts a weekly brunch where there’s two sittings in the restaurant of Mediterranean sharing dishes, as well as a slightly longer option if you choose to brunch beachside.

Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE, Al Jazira Hotels and Resort, Ghantoot, Abu Dhabi, 1pm to 11pm, Friday and Saturday. Tel: (056) 113 3400. bluemarlinibiza-uae.com

Summersalt Dubai

The only way that you could beat this beach club’s view of the Burj Al Arab is if you hopped on a boat. The Jumeirah Al Naseem spot is quite literally under the shadow of the Burj, but don’t worry, it’ won’t stop your tan game. The luxury club has a white sand beach, infinity pool and music that’s just loud enough to add atmosphere. Go in the morning if you want to read a book, or head there in the afternoon if you’re after a livelier vibe. The food is a Mediterranean mix with a heavy Italian influence, and it’s only steps away from your lounger if you’re wanting to tuck in midway through your tanning session.

Jumeirah Al Naseem, Dubai, daily 9am to 6pm, Dhs577 with Dhs250 food credit back. Tel: (04) 366 7680. jumeirah.com

Playa Nomade Dubai

Bringing a Nomadic vibe to the Palm Jumeirah is Playa Nomade. The stripped back beach club serves up a more chilled out vibe during the week, with a lively vibe taking over with regular house DJs and party brunches dominating the shores every Friday and Saturday.

Playa Nomade, Rixos The Palm, Palm Jumeirah, 11am to 8pm, Weds to Sun, 11am to 12am, Fri. reservations@playanomade.com

Drift Beach Club, One & Only Royal Mirage

We love a good sunbathing spot in Dubai, and this new luxury beach club is a total treat. Located in the swanky One&Only Royal Mirage, DRIFT is described as a destination where “luxury beach chic meets casual simplicity”. There’s an infinity pool, 1km of prime beachfront real estate, and a restaurant and bar serving up Provencal cuisine and interesting cocktails. Don’t mind if we do…

DRIFT, One&Only Royal Mirage, Al Sufouh. Pool and beach open daily 10.30am to 7pm, restaurant open daily 12.30pm to 7pm. Packages start from Dhs250 for sunlounger with beach and pool access Sun to Thurs, Dhs300 Fri and Sat. Tel: (04) 315 2200. driftbeachdubai.com.

Zero Gravity

Zero Gravity is one of the best for a party crowd: a host of DJs spin decks every weekend, and the pool itself is huge. The glass side that looks out to the beach is perfect for the snap-happy. There aren’t many single loungers by the pool, but cabanas are available with minimum spends for a VIP experience. Weekday rates start from Dhs160 including a Dhs50 food and drink voucher, with free entry for ladies on their Tuesday ladies’ day, while weekend access is included in their Friday and Saturday brunch packages.

Zero Gravity, Dubai Marina, Sun, Mon and Weds 10am to 9pm, Tues 9am to 3am, Thurs 10am to 3am, Fri and Sat 8am to 3am. Tel:04 399 0009. More info on 0-gravity.ae.

Barasti Dubai

Big, brash and boisterous, Barasti is a Brit expat favourite, and quickly packs out with people. The giant top deck screens football and rugby, live bands perform at sunset, and there’s a daily happy hour from 4pm to 7pm. Plus, they’ve just opened a brand new pool. Did we mention that entry is free for everyone?

Barasti, Le Méridien Mina Seyahi Beach resort and Marina, Sat to Weds 11am to 1.30am, Thurs and Fri 11am to 3am, pool and sea access until sunset. Tel: (04) 318 1313. barastibeach.com.

Andreeas Dubai

On the edge of the beach in Dubai Marina you’ll find Andreeas. It’s undergone a couple of extensive refurbs recently, and boasts a split level pool with swim-up bar, in-water loungers and access to a pristine JBR beachfront. It’s a more chilled spot for topping up your tan, with two value ladies’ day deals every

Andreeas, Habtoor Grand, Dubai Marina, daily 9am to sunset. Tel: (04) 408 4400. andreeas.ae

Rehab Beach Club Closing this Season

After 15 years of afternoon debauchery, big name deejays, bikini-clad ladies, and fun in the sun, Rehab Beach Club calls it quits. The pool party at the Hard Rock Hotel has one last long weekend hurrah this weekend – October 14 is the final party.

Rehab got its start back in 2004 while the resort converted its Baby’s nightclub into Body English and the idea of extending the party from night to day took hold. Over the years, the perhaps most famous pool party in Las Vegas attracted reality stars such as Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton, actress Lindsay Lohan, singer Justin Bieber, rapper Puff Daddy, former NBA star Dennis Rodman, and even Shaquille O’Neal, the NBA star who’s opening a chicken restaurant across the street, who brought his alter ego DJ Diesel to the decks in August. At its height, the pool party even had Rehab: Party at the Hard Rock Hotel, a reality television docudrama on TruTV, from 2008 to 2010.

Virgin Group founder Richard Branson and an investment group that includes Bosworth Hospitality Partners and investment firm Juniper Capital bought out the resort on the east side of Las Vegas in April. Changes to the rock-n-roll-themed resort take place through the end of 2019, when the Virgin name takes over.

Nikki Beach Dubai Season Opening Party

Fans of Nikki Beach, listen up, the world-famous beach club brand is reopening its Dubai branch this weekend (Saturday September 1) after a summer break.

It may still be pretty toasty outside, but that won’t stop us donning our finest swimmers and getting ready to welcome the winter beach club season in.

On Saturday (September 1), Nikki Beach in Pearl Jumeira will be hosting La Vie en Rose – the first of the season’s Saturday brunch offerings.

Make a booking and you’ll be able to lounge by the awesome pool and on the beach – which has stunning views out to sea – all day long from 11am until 9pm. The brunch package itself is Dhs265 for soft drinks, Dhs395 for grape and hops, and Dhs465 for grape, hops and shorts.

And to really kick of the beach club season, the venue’s hosting a Deluxe Pool Party on Friday September 21. The massive party runs from 11am until 9pm, and promises to be a “Hawaiian-themed event like no other”. Beats will be provided by Nikki Beach’s resident DJs, while the pool will be packed with fun inflatables. There will also be Hawaiian dishes to nibble on, too. That calls for a new swimsuit, we’d say.

Meanwhile, ladies, gather your pals and head down to the swanky beach club on a Tuesday, where for Dhs130 you’ll get six drinks and a bed to sunbathe on all day. Get there early though, as it’s on a first come, first served basis.

And finally, if you fancy something a little more sedate, book in for the Nikki Beach Treat. Until the end of September you’ll get a two-hour signature treatment from Nikki Spa, a healthy lunch at Café Nikki and access to the pool and beach for just Dhs699.

We’ll see you at the beach.

Daily, 11am-9pm. Nikki Beach Dubai, Pearl Jumeira (04 376 6162).

Best Gay Pool Party in Vegas – Electric Safari @ Flamingo Beach Club

It might not be Pride month in Las Vegas, but the Flamingo’s beach club has gotten in on the summer celebration anyway with the biggest gay/lesbian pool party in Las Vegas. The resort pool recently unveiled the summer lineup for its LGBT-focused party Electric Safari, which will feature an assortment of DJs from the techno, house and LGBT dance worlds. Because why should we wait until October to celebrate?

Launched in May in partnership with Artificial People Las Vegas Presents, the nighttime swim soiree takes place every Thursday at the Flamingo Go Pool beginning at 9 p.m. The cover is $5 for hotel guests and Nevada residents and $10 for non-residents. It’s one of the few LGBT dayclub events actually happening on the Las Vegas Strip, taking over the 15-acre tropical retreat with lagoons, a waterfall and three sparkling pools.

Bust out the Speedos and sexy safari-themed gear when LA’s Dan De Leon takes over the decks on June 28, or when San Francisco Pride regular Dominic Pacifico brings his signature mixes to the pool on July 12. Together, Leon and Pacifico comprise DJ duo Krusade—an outfit with 30 years of deep, dancefloor-ready bangers and remixes of club-favorite artists like Timbaland and Nelly Furtado.

Your Cali friends might be making you jealous with all of their pride selfies for now, but you get to celebrate poolside all summer long.

Which Vegas Club / Pool Party Has The Hottest Waitresses / Bottle Girls?

Anyone who’s lived in Vegas and worked in the service industry knows that the holy grail of service jobs for females is as cocktail servers at the summer dayclub pool parties. The ladies who secure jobs at these establishments can make six-figure salaries for less than six months of three-days-a-week, eight-hours-a-day work. In addition, it is widely known that male customers in Vegas will tend to spend more money in the presence of attractive females, so it’s just good business for the venues to stock their services staff with eye candy, and the corresponding server tip pools for them can be sizable at the end of a high-demand day.

As a result, these dayclub bartender and table server positions are the most competitive, most selective, and most coveted out of any casino front-lines customer service job position offered in Vegas, and the best venues thus have the luxury of choosing from an endless candidate pool of the most attractive women in the world. And because the women at the dayclubs have to wear bikinis in broad daylight and show skin to a much further extent than their nightclub server counterparts do, they are usually a cut above in terms of physical appearance as well as demeanor and personality.

It’s a consensus among most of us Vegas service industry insiders that the most attractive female service staff works over at Encore Beach Club (shown above), one of the best pool parties in Vegas 7+ years running. This assessment is backed up by anecdotal evidence from numerous women who have participated in annual tryouts for casino pool party service jobs; many claim that tryouts for EBC are both the most well-attended and the most demanding, owing in large part to the higher-spending clientele that EBC attracts. The Wet Republic staff (shown below) is rated a close second to EBC, followed by Marquee Dayclub, Daylight, and Drai’s Beach Club.

But don’t take our word for it. You can do some, ahem, “research” yourself on your next trip out to Vegas. Use the Discotech app to search Vegas pool parties by the specific dates you’ll be in town, and then buy tickets, sign up for guest lists, or even reserve tables if you’re feeling super-fancy. The app event info refreshes daily, pulling from various Las Vegs entertainment online resources including the official websites of the clubs themselves, so it’s always current, accurate, and in the know. Pro tip: the bigger the featured performer that day, the better the odds of the venue having all of their “A” Team servers working, and the better the eye candy for you to admire.

Best Pool Parties in Dallas – Sisu / Secret Sundays / Stonleight Splash

This weekend ushers in a new era of poolside glamour downtown when Secret Sundays // Waterproof begins at the Statler Hotel, which opened officially in February after a long and much-awaited renovation.  Atop the 19-story Dallas landmark is a small pool crowned with a statue of Statler mascot Llinda Llee Llama where a helipad used to welcome the rich and famous.

Each Sunday DJs Luchianni and Blake Ward will align the afternoon with “Saint Tropez” vibes as described for about 100 people at a time on an RSVP-required, first-come, first-served basis. There’s a bottle service and cabana option, too. Those interested can get situated here.  Regular admission is free. The day runs from noon to 6 p.m.

That series was set to begin last week but rain intervened. It would have scooped The Stoneleigh, which starts a new series called Stoneleigh Splash! on Sunday in the same time slot. Tickets are $10, but include special events like swim-up movies, fashion and art shows, and concerts on the lawn. Partiers hoping for cabana reservations can make them here. 

To be seen is one of Sisu’s primary pleasures. All the things we seek out in dark clubs in the wee hours of the morning are here, stripped bare by the sunlight, and the communion of bacchanalian bliss is on full display. Bottles of vodka are ceremoniously carried out by women in skimpy bathing suits. A guy in a tank top floats on his back, wearing sunglasses that have the words “love” and “trap” on each lens. A crew rolls in led by a woman who looks like a Hong Kong pop star, with short cropped black hair and long, flowing pants. In their walk to a VIP cabana, they have somehow grabbed everyone’s attention. They look like they could be the heirs of a Shanghai bankster. And yet, they could be anybody. 

 

Previous to the resort property’s creation of the weekly poolside day club AQUA, A-list DJ talent was limited to Southside and Deep Ellum neighborhoods. Sisu’s opening will forever mark the era when these top tier DJs returned to Dallas’ Uptown/Downtown area. How was this accomplished by one venue? The answer is in the team consisting of resident DJ/Entertainment – Director Wade Randolph Hampton, and his promotional partnership with the Dallas arm of global concert powerhouse SFX and Disco Donnie Presents/Full Access. AQUA has played host to superstar DJs Paul Oakenfold, 12th Planet, Destructo, Cedric Gervais, Dev, Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas, Hardkiss Family and Sliink. Continuing in the tradition of Sisu’s trademark ‘Malibu surf house’ design, the makeover will include a stylish interior ensemble within the 4,500 square foot Spanish home. The new design, created by Hampton, features dramatic changes to the dining room seating, lighting, and sound. Upstairs has transformed into a secluded skybox overlooking the main room, and is outfitted with both a billiards room and a private dining / bar area. Rounding out the second floor is private smoking balcony with a beautiful view of Sisu’s massive pool area. Book a cabana with bottle service for Sisu here.
