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?
