On a night out in Dubai you’ll run into a variety of different people, here are just a few of the ladies you’re likely to meet while cruising the town.
You can always tell when it’s a school holiday, inspection time or reports have been handed in because the city will be buzzing with teachers ready to celebrate.
Don’t try and keep up with these ladies, they’re on a mission and have already turned off their 5:30am alarms because they don’t plan on getting out of bed until at least noon for a change.
You’ll easily spot them and their not so carefully choreographed moves on the dance floor.
The Air Hostess
If you worked in a tin can at 36,000ft and had to deal with rude, selfish and needy passengers all day you would need to blow off a little steam too. You’ll find these ladies of the sky in any bar with a Facecard discount getting trollied on the cheap – not to mention ladies nights – and with no flights for at least 24 hours they are out to party hard.
They’re stunning and their hair and make up is almost always perfect (at least at the beginning of the night) and they’ll often be found cruising the town with the rest of their crew.
The Woo Girls
You’ll hear them before you see them, their woos and squeals will ring out through the bar. From the way they greet each other you’d think they hadn’t seen each other in years when chances are they were at pilates together yesterday.
Admired for their ability to celebrate everything the woo girls are always up for a party but don’t count on them being able to hold their alcohol, the louder the woo the drunker the girl.
Often found on the dance floor in a circle occasionally pointing at one another, lip-syncing their hearts out their excitement is less infectious and more irritating.
The Escaped Mum
When blessed with tiny humans it can be difficult to find time for yourself and thing like going out and partying, so on those rare occasions when they are free to let loose they make the most of it – no holds barred.
Expect cringe-worthy dancing, cocktails and wine galore and constant reminders about how much they’ve “missed this”. Chances are that before the night is half way through their heels will be kicked off to the side of the dance floor but you can be sure that in the morning, no matter how much their head is banging, they’ll still be getting up and looking after their kids the next day.
Think big hair, bigger eyelashes, and sky high heels. These are the party girls who never leave the house for a night out without being dressed to the nines.
At the beginning of the night they are stunning, poised and somewhat graceful but a few proseccos in they teetering and tottering nine inches in the air doing an impressive imitation of a new born foal.
Be prepared for them making new friends on every trip to the bathroom and demanding a fast food on the way home.
The Power Woman
A strong independent woman who is often found in bars rather than clubs sipping on a good glass of grape or something stronger depending on the day.
She’s out to wind down after a long day and isn’t often looking to party, but if you can convince her to push back that morning meeting so she can stay out past closing you wont regret it.
We’ve all see a Mrs. Robinson prowling the nightclubs looking for a younger partner. Often from one of two camps these women are either sheep in lambs clothing and trying a little bit too hard to hold on to their youth or powerful ladies who know exactly what they want and they’re there to get it.
Often found knocking back drinks with the “young-uns” at the bar and drinking them under the table they will be taking over the dance floor by the end of the night – and they always get what they want.
The SnapChat Babe
Giving a whole new meaning to being flashed these women live their lives through their phones, whether it’s taking 1000s of selfies – complete with the dog filter (you’ll see lots of opening and closing of mouths) – or filming anything happening on the stage it will all be on Snapchat by the morning.
Be aware, with these ladies you’ll never be alone again.
Looking a little bit out of place these are ladies are pretty easy to spot. How? They are in awe of everything. Meet them in the bathroom and they will be commenting on the size of the mirror, at the bar, the price of drinks, almost anywhere else, probably how amazing Dubai is.
Chances are you’ll get interrogated about life in Dubai followed by the not so short justification of why the three days they’ve spent here has made them decide to move over.
The Young Ones
Sneaking into clubs with a fake ID is a timeless tradition of adolescents but as society evolves it gets harder and harder to tell who is actually underage.
Dolled up to the nines this girls are often trying a little harder than they should be, they’ll accept any free drink offered – because pocket money doesn’t go very far covering the cost of cocktails in this city – and they travel in packs (a group of giggling girls who stick together no matter what is a pretty good give away).
