Question Are these night club rules true?

Are you required to be 25 years old to enter a night club in Dubai? And do you need to be at least 21 to drink alcohol? Do the above two rules apply to all the nightclubs in Dubai? Then what about some Irish clubs, which are said to be pretty easy going on any rules and restrictions?

And I read it somewhere that you can also visit any "members only" club in Dubai without being a member. According to their laws, no nightclub can refuse entrance to anyone, even the "members only" clubs cannot refuse . Only that they would charge hefty entry fees from visitors . So you can visit a "members only" club without actually being a member if you have got enough your wallet.

Wow, 25, I'm not too sure,but that does sound like a drag. As usual I would think there is always a way of getting around it if you know the right people.

Yeah the locals and the right people can give guidelines of sneaking into these night clubs.You see rules are generally formed to be broken,and such places are hub for the law breakers.If you are ready to throw money to have an entry into a club, who will stop you.

25 is definitely kind of lame. I don't see why they don't just make the rule 21 years old like most other places in the world. I agree though, if you've got enough money, nobody is going to stop you going into a place like this. They exist to make money, and they're sure to want to make money more than uphold the law.

Some of the rules you mention are quite extreme. I don't think they would apply in all places, maybe just the high class ones, if any. I don't know why people make such a big deal out of th rules involved in the night clubs, its pretty much the same. Maybe its just because people have a different view of the city and do not expect the same kind of behaviour.

wow, that is really amazing. now i know how strict Dubai is. it is very scary to visit Dubai. first thing that you should do is to become aware of their culture and beliefs.

25???? well, it is the Middle East. No offense (I'm originally from there), but they tend to be stricter then the West, usually with good reason which is unknown to us, hence the surprise! I'd b interested in ascertaining this fact!

The 25 year old law doesnt exist, people like spreading crap too remember. Its 21 for almost 99% of places you would be visiting anyway.

And if you got money, there is nothing you cannot do and no place you cant get into.

In this country, money makes you king, end of. Its all about money!
