places open 24 hours in dubai

The insomniac’s guide to places open 24 hours in Dubai.

Dubai is a city that comes alive at night and if you are tossing and turning and unable to catch up on your beauty sleep then get out of bed and go check out some of our favourite late-night spots.

Maison Mathis

Located on Sheikh Zayed Road, Maison Mathis offers a Midnight Menu that is ideal for when you have late night cravings and want more than just a shawarma from your local street cafe. The menu boasts an eclectic mix of starters, main and desserts and is offered at 150 AED for any 2 courses. We personally adored fresh and tasty roasted beet and yogurt and the avocado and prawn salads.

Al Ijaza Cafe

This popular drive-through juice bar will have a server bring you the menu to the car.  The juices are delicious too, with three sizes available – Small (6 AED), Medium (8 AED), and Large (10 AED). There’s also a long list of heavier shakes, with quirky names like Twitter and Facebook – but with no ingredients description beside them, we found them difficult to order.
