Clubs & taking Metro / public transport

I know Dubai has zero alcohol tolerance, but if I am down a couple of beers and am early can I take metro back to the hotel OR its totally not advisable ?

Also, sum good clubs where Stag are welcomed and has nominal cover charges.

I know two of them, Zinc & trilogy.

I think you are a little confused. There is zero tolerance for drink driving ie there is not an acceptable level of alcohol in the blood if you get behind the wheel of a car, it has to be zero.

Yes, you can take the metro home after a 'couple of beers' but it's not advisable to be obviously drunk in public.

Not sure what you meant by 'early' but the metro runs from 06:00 to 23:00 Saturday thru Thursday, and 14:00 to Midnight on Fridays.

Do not drink and drive (zero tolerance)

Do not drink and get in trouble or make a scene that could involve getting the police called.

There are several popular bars and clubs. To name few: 360 and Mahiki at jumaireh beach hotel, XL beach club at the habtoor, Boudoir at dubai marine beach resort and some like Cavalli in Fairmont and People by Crystal in Raffles require dress code and reservations.

Alrite, so its perfectly fine if I take bus/metro after gulping down few beers as long as I appear sober, Right !?

BTW, what are the timings of bus operation.

Have a look at the RTA web site - the timings of the buses depends on where you are going and coming from.

Frankly after clubbing or a bar you may be better getting taxis

Appear sober and not have alcohol smell coming out of you. Agree with Latimer better off take a taxi/cab
