Some Clubs in Dubai [Jul. 4th, 2006|05:36 am]

These pictures are for octal who wanted to see some clubs in Dubai. These pictures were taken within the last week.


This is an Africa club antivert and I went to with nativeinformant, speed_fetish, dubaiwalla, and bklyn_in_dubai. Can any of you tell me the name of it? Cafe Africana or something? It's next door to an Indian club that dubaiwalla encouraged us follow him to; we weren't in there five seconds before we realized we should leave, quickly.


This is Rocky's, a Filipino club in the Regent Palace hotel. We went there with Nick (one of the Superfriends we met on our Sri Lanka trip last December), after Ghana was defeated by those cheating Brazilians. There were five or six female performers, but I somehow managed to take pictures only of the guys. Like the Africa club, it was well black-lit and the live music was better than expected.

Why did you need to flee from the indian club? "Commerce"?

Not that seedy, but sooo not our scene. Are you familiar with Japanese "snack bars?" Basically, I found myself the only female in the room not on display. Don and Zippy looked a bit out of place, as well.

I am not familiar with Japanese "snack bars".

I must become more familiar with Japan.

Many many things which I'd consider overly seedy in the US, I'd be willing to tolerate in Japan, just because it's Japan.

I think I've been in both of those clubs. Or maybe not as things change quickly there. All I remember is that the band in the Filipino club was doing a cover of a Guns N Roses song. Very surreal.

Very well could be the same place!

I lived in Centrepoint and as I recall, both clubs were somewhere in the area across the street. But this was, of course, 5 years ago and I imagine the landscape is VERY different in Dubai now.
