Live Music Bars in Dubai – 2023

After a lot of googling and Insta stalking (it’s called research), here’s a listing put together for myself and for many others out there who are wondering where to find live music in Dubai.

You are here because you are looking for a casual evening out with your friends, your partner, and you would like some chilled live music – with some sort of drink deals – ladies night, gent nights, or similar. There’s music in various venues – bars, pubs, restaurants, cafes and food halls.

All mums and dads deserve a nice night out every so often – and it’s just so much better with an acoustic set, isn’t it?

Enjoy ๐Ÿ˜‰

Dubai resident. Stays most of the time in the marina as she can't be bothered going anywhere else after work and in the weekends. Originally from the land of the orang utans, spent the latter half of her life in the land down under. Always on the look out for deals, loves organising get-togethers, and occasionally steals some time for a sip of wine or four at ladies nights.
