Dubai's best gentlemen's evenings

Clear your calendars, gents. Now there’s a manly night out for every day of the week.

Peter Iantorno February 15, 2015

Here in Dubai, ladies nights have become so popular it's difficult to find a bar nowadays that isn't offering free bubbles and watered-down cocktails in an attempt to attract the patronage of the fairer sex. When it comes to us men, historically we haven't had anywhere near as good a deal, with the odd happy hour or pub quiz about as exciting as it got.


However, the Dubai social scene is no longer just an excuse for women to get free drinks, and there's now much more out there to keep us entertained.


In fact, there's so much available for us blokes nowadays, we could go out on any day of the week and there's something good on catering especially to us! And to prove that fact, here are our recommendations for Dubai's best gentlemen's evenings on every night of the week:




Rosso, Amwaj Rotana JBR
You can ease into your working week with a couple of pints and a pizza at Amwaj Rotana JBR's Italian restaurant, Rosso. Every Sunday the venue holds Gentlemen's Night, offering guests a choice of more than 10 pizzas, washed down with two pints of their favourite brew, and all for AED 120. Details: Visit


Ruth's Chris Steak House & Lounge, The Address Dubai Marina
Popular Dubai Marina steak house Ruth's Chris hosts a cheese and wine evening every Sunday, where guests can indulge in unlimited wine and a special selection of tasty cheeses, from your basic Cheddar to a pungent blue, all for AED 200 per person. Details: Visit 






Z:One, Media One Hotel
What could be more manly than hit TV programme Mad Men? "Nothing" is the answer, which is why the Media One's 'Mad Men Mondays" evenings are right up our street. There's 60's lounge-style music, men get two free drinks, classic cocktails are just AED 30 and you can get a sharing platter for AED 60. Details: visit





Hunters Room & Grill, The Westin Dubai
Every Tuesday, The Westin's steak house , Hunters Room & Grill, proposes a rather attractive 'Gentlemen's Agreement' - specifically, if you go along with a friend, they'll give you 50 percent off your steak or bottle of wine. And to make things even better, the deal just so happens to coincide with the ladies night at The Westin's Oeno wine bar, so for some female company after your meal, all you need to do is head upstairs.

Grand Grill, Habtoor Grand Beach Resort and Spa
One for big eaters of the carnivorous persuasion, the Grand Grill's Ribs & Chicken Tuesdays gives diners the chance to enjoy as many mouth-watering BBQ beef spare ribs and as much chicken as they like from 7pm to midnight. It costs 115 AED, or 185 AED with four drinks. Details: visit The-Grand-Grill, Dubai.





La Porte Des Indes, The Address Dubai Mall

Seafire Steakhouse and Bar, Atlantis The Palm
Wednesdays at Seafire see a glorious meeting of two of our favourite things: Frank Sinatra and Jack Daniel's. Celebrating the special-edition Sinatra Select Jack Daniel’s, the whole evening is geared around Frank's favourite tipple, with themed cocktails, an excellent special menu and even a live band playing tributes to Sinatra’s songs all night long. Much like the man himself, this experience is one of a kind. Details: visit sinatra night Seafire Steak House.





One on One Bar, The H Dubai

Guests can pick from a selection of Cuban cigars, paired with the chef’s specially made smoke-inspired dishes, such as cognac-marinated salmon gravlax, plus either a large Hennessey, or Hennessey-inspired cocktail. AED 210 per person. Details: Visit
