The Jumeirah Beach Hotel’s shining glass arc forms an epic, undulating curve against the Dubai skyline. It’s stunning — the kind of thing you can’t believe you’re seeing in real life. Fortunately, you have a fantastic view of it at 360°, the hotel’s restaurant and club. It’s set apart from the hotel, out on a pier off the shoreline; sitting here, you can drink in the scene, along with a cocktail or two, all night long.
The fabulous view is the first thing to catch your attention, but then you’re likely to notice the aroma of pan-Asian food from 360°’s rooftop lounge. You’ve never tried anything like the Thai lemongrass lobster with mango and jicama, and one bite has you hooked on the combination of fresh, tender lobster meat and aromatic citrus-tinged spices. You’re wondering if any local Thai restaurants serve lobster back home, while your date is raving about the rich Five Spices Duck Breast with pineapple. Duck plus pineapple: another fantastic combination you never knew you needed in your life. After your plates are cleared, you two can smoke some shisha and sip an after-dinner cocktail while taking in the golden beaches, bustling city, and spectacular Arabian sunset.
The comfortable seating and cool night desert air is just the tonic to unwind after a hot, busy day, reviving you as the first pulsing beats start up in the legendary 360° weekend dance party. In no time, the club is alive with moving lights and shaking hips as the killer house music brings the energy to a fever pitch. You and your date are in the thick of it, lifted up by the frenetic energy in the room and moving with abandon. This exotic playground is filled with great DJs and chic crowds flowing in and out — definitely the only place you want to be right now. For a break between songs, take some time to lean against the outdoor railing and have another look at the Jumeirah Hotel and Dubai’s glittering skyline. With blazing lights of the city all around you, the club music in your ears, and a drink in your hand, it’d be tough to imagine a better night out.
