Went for brunch. Price was good but you had to queue outside in 40+ heat to get in as you pay before entering. There was a huge queue to get food made worse by it not being replenished so people waiting longer to eat. I hardly ate anything as I didn't want to wait a second time. The food was... More

What waste of space during the week, it has no atmosphere even tho the place is quite stunning. You will watch two gogo dancers with nothing to offer ( I don't think they can actually dance) but they do kind of look like catwalk models. The security staff are always nice but the main room waiters have a bit of... More

Everything I go there for a brunch I have really good experience, it's a good place to gather ur friends and have a real good brunch. Apart from that I don't recommend it for a night out. I'd like to thank all staff especially Mr. Khaled for their good service.

However, We have never been treated so badly as here. The staff were rude unprofessional and simply, don't care what you think. We booked for 11 people as we heard that they have nice after brunch time. The food is way below average, drinks are disgusted served in a cheap plastic and take ages to be served. Trying to speak...

Description
Located at the beach front of the Habtoor Grand Beach Resort & Spa, the club first opened under the name XL Beach Club in 2011. This first of its kind Night Club quickly established itself as the destination of choice for Dubai's party elite. Then in 2014, XL underwent a major refurbishment and became XL Dubai. This new high-tech, yet opulent space has taken the Dubai clubbing experience to a whole new level. Playing host to a long list of world class international DJ's in 2015, there is always something going on at XL Dubai Our VIP Cabanas feature their own personal waitress, private toilet, bar area and swimming pools! For the Ultimate night out there is no other option!

Staying in The Marina

Neighbourhood Profile
The Marina
It’s hard to believe that only a decade ago there was no marina. Opened in 2003, the man-made marina runs along a 3km stretch of shoreline. A heady mix of luxurious hotels, apartment buildings, and cafes, the marina hosts regular community events and markets, and is a wonderful place to while away an afternoon or evening. Spectacular at night when the skyscrapers glisten, here you can enjoy dinner on the beach next to the sea, or visit a high-rise bar in a hotel for a magnificent view across the Gulf and the man-made Palm Island, with the world-famous Atlantis Hotel at its end. The Walk at Jumeirah beach Residences is a pedestrianized stretch leading to a new development: The Beach. It’s one of the few places where Gulf nationals mix with tourists and Western ex-pats. It’s a popular place to show off your supercar for an evening, so watch out for Lamborghinis, Maseratis, and Ferraris in abundance.
