ROCK BOTTOM Cafe: "More than a decade... more than a feeling..." Top 5 Page for this destination Dubai Nightlife Tip by JessH
Dubai Nightlife: 139 reviews and 317 photos
No matter how many new & pumping clubs open up around town, at least once a month I find myself being drawn-back to this place... it's a tradition, a legend, a classic. If you're looking for a fancy clientele with zen interiors and sophisticated cocktails: this is not the place for you ;-) This is a place where you'll get laughed at for showing up with a shirt & tie or a Burberry purse - so just relax, kick back & go with the grubby, jagged & rocky flow.
First opened in August 1996, Rock Bottom's has had its ups-n-downs, but at the end of the day if you've been having a boring & expensive night at any of the new & flashy clubs in Dubai, walk into Rock Bottom's and you're always guaranteed a great crowd, great music & an atmosphere you can't beat!
Like most nightspots in the city, it transforms from a casual restaurant in the early evening to a pumping club towards the wee hours... Food is good & affordable, with your usual burgers, lasagnes & grills but unfortunately no nice vegetarian choices.
The decor reminds of an American biker-bar (actually, they have 3 bars in there so you never have to go thirsty), with pool tables, dining booths in red leather & a medium-sized dancefloor & stage for the live bands.
> Ladies Night (2 free drinks) EVERY NIGHT exept Thursday!
> TUESDAYS: Free champagne (or Vodka Mixers in an authentic Rock Bottom's Mug) for ladies all night.
> FRIDAYS Karaoke & select drinks for only 2 Dhs (50 $cents!) for ladies!
No matter what night of the week, what time of the year, you'll always find a great crowd and pumping music (everything from Rock oldies, Pop, Dance, Reggae, etc.) with the DJ & live band switching places every 30-45 min.
Dress Code: BOYS: Smart-casual. Jeans are fine, but just to be safe guys should wear shirt with collar. Sneakers are fine but no sandals.
GIRLS: just bring a smile and I.D. and in you go.
Opening Hours: 7 days a week, 12noon - 03:00am.
TIP: If you're feeling brave, try the notorious "Bullfrog" - all white spirits with a dash of Blue Curacao & Red Bull (it comes in a pint glass)
--> UPDATE April 2008: This year's TimeOutDubai Awards rated Rock Bottom's number 16 out of the top 50 nightclubs in the city.
Address: Regent Palace Hotel, Bur Dubai
Directions: On Trade Centre Road, Bur Dubai, exactly opposite Bur Juman Shopping Centre... any taxi driver knows!
