Planning a girl’s night out can sometimes be a stressful endeavor – in any given group, there’s usually that one friend who ends up complaining about everything, one who has recently sworn off gluten, and one who is on a tight budget but still wants to eat somewhere trendy. To win at planning the perfect girls’ night out, Savoir Flair has rounded up ten Dubai spots that guarantee the right mix of cool ambience and delicious dishes.
If your group has expressed interest in a night of dancing, this super sceney new spot should be your go-to. While the Caribbean food at this Jamaican haunt will leave you satiated, it really is all about the endless opportunities for people watching. Read our full review of Miss Lily’s, here.
