Time Out recommends a number of places that are open all day long in Dubai

Posted: 16-Nov-16 12:13

Much like the New York City of the Middle East, Dubai is a city that never sleeps. While many of its most famous attractions stick to traditional, daytime hours, there are plenty of options for enjoying a night in Dubai. The following list includes everything from all-night restaurants to spas to printing services, in case you feel the need to do some writing overnight.

Time Out recommends a number of places that are open all day long in Dubai

Over the last few decades, Dubai has transformed itself from a small fishing village to one of the world’s most cosmopolitan and innovative cities, famous throughout the world for its daring architecture. It has also developed a reputation for being a city that doesn’t sleep. For visitors to Dubai who are in search of energetic nightlife or those who simply have the middle-of-the-night munchies, Time Out has compiled a list of thing to keep you occupied in the wee hours while in Dubai.

  • 24-hour Softouch Spa. If a busy day leaves you stressed and with only the night hours free, book an Ayurvedic treatment at the Softouch Spa. It’s a great ending to a long day.
  • 24 Fitness Dubai. As its name suggests, it’s open 24 hours a day, giving you no excuses to exercise.
  • Al Reef Lebanese Bakery. If you find yourself awake in the middle of the night and craving something sweet, head over to Al Reef, home of some of the best Lebanese food in the city.
  • Zoom. This 24-hour grocery delivers orders throughout the city, making it possible to do your grocery shopping from the comfort of your bed.
  • Chowking. Every city needs round-the-clock Chinese, and in Dubai, one of the best choices is Chowking.
  • 7-Eleven. This international chain of convenience stores now has locations in Dubai, meaning its trademark Slurpee drinks are available 24 hours a day.
  • Milk & Honey. A bit more refined that 7-Eleven, Milk & Honey provides organic foods and beauty products, as well as the gourmet coffee brand, RAW.
  • Uber Eats. Based on the same idea as the taxis, using the Uber Eats app will locate food in your area and you can even watch its progress as it’s being delivered to you.
  • Al Ittihad Park. Located on Dubai’s iconic Palm, the park includes jogging trails and scattered gym equipment.
  • Maison Mathis. For couples who happen to be night owls, Maison Mathis offers a romantic ambience and three-course meals 24 hours a day.
  • Dennys. Offering everything from milkshakes to pancakes, Denny’s is an iconic, all-American diner.
  • Gas stations. Dubai’s gas stations tend to get quite busy during the day; fortunately, many are open 24 hours a day, meaning you can avoid that long, daytime line.
  • La Farine Café and Bakery. Located in the Marriott Marquis Dubai, this delightful bakery can prepare confections of every sort at any hour of the day. With a day’s notice, they can also prepare custom cakes.
  • Last Exit. With twelve permanent trucks, Last Exit is a food truck park located between Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
  • Jumeirah Beach. Swimming after dark may not be advisable, but a stroll along Jumeirah Beach, which is open all day and night, is lovely.
  • Sheraton Gym. You don’t have to be a guest at the Sheraton Dubai Mall of the Emirates to avail yourself of its gym. The pool closes at 10PM, but the gym and stretching rooms are open all night.
  • Burj Park. The area around the Burj Khalifa can be crowded during the daylight hours, but a stroll through the park at night is delightful.
  • Zaroob. For some of the best Levantine food in the city, head to Zaroob, with its quirky, artsy vibe.
  • Piccolo Mondo Bay. For glittering views of the city skyline, few places can compare with Piccolo Mondo Bay. It also happens to have a laid-back, relaxed atmosphere, perfect for enjoying shisha.
  • Abra rides. These small boats are the preferred mode of transportation for many native Dubaians. After dark, they offer one of the best ways to see the city.
  • Zaatar W Zeit. Another popular Lebanese restaurant, this place is bustling all hours of the day.
  • Desco. If you have a late-night hankering to organize your office or a project due first thing in the morning, Desco is open 24 hours a day and offers a full range of printing services.
  • Dubai Duty Free. It makes sense that a city that never sleeps has an airport that never closes. The airport has one of the world’s largest duty free shop, with an especially wide range of perfumes.

Dubai is a fascinating city with attractions and activities for virtually every interest. And there’s plenty for night owls, as well.
