The Review

  • The Good

    Binding together a basement bar, a concept club and old-school video games, Stereo Arcade is tearing up the nightlife scene in Dubai Marina. The retro hangout switches up conventional norms, fusing crowd-pleasing anthems with gaming machines straight out of the 1980's golden era.

    Located at Double Tree by Hilton Hotel, Stereo Arcade caters to the gamers, the live music lovers and the dance floor divas. The pub hosts bands and the club blares out the best of the 80s, 90s and 00s, while the arcade stays true to its classic joystick roots.


    Stereo Arcade Dubai has the cool factor; you can step out of the pub rocking vibes and straight into the neon lights of the late-night club, with a quick stop-off for a Street Fighter dual en route.

    With cubed tables, circuit-board feature walls and triangular lighting, the club is inspired by 80s gaming fun. We reserved a table just in front of the DJ podium and were super impressed with the service. There was a dedicated staff member at the table throughout the night, taking care of our drinks. The club manages to balance table-service exclusivity with a bustling club scene that'll keep you dancing right through to the end of the night.

  • The Bad
    The 12 gaming machines were shipped over from the U.K., and we love them, but we were a little underwhelmed by the set-up. Essentially, the arcade room doubles up as a gateway to the pub and the bar, so it sits in isolation from the Stereo Arcade atmosphere. Given that you can't drink, eat or smoke while playing the arcades games, you'll have to consciously make the effort to step away from the crowds.

    The club room is open on Thursdays and Friday nights, and the DJ only starts spinning the tunes from around midnight. While we like the gaming theme of the bathrooms, it's a total mission to push through the weekend club crowds to get to them.
  • The Tips
    Make the effort to take a trip back to your youth and play at least one round of arcade games at some stage during the night - they're free! It's worth noting that shorts are allowed in the pub for men, however they're not allowed in the club.

    To witness the party in full swing, plan a Friday visit to Stereo Arcade; the music's pumping and there's generally live music too. Another night of the week to visit is Tuesdays for Ladies Night, where women get two free drinks from 8pm to 11pm in the pub. On Wednesdays, ladies can enjoy three free drinks between 12am and 2am in the club. We'd recommend showing up before 11pm on weekends for walk-ins, so you don't have to queue for too long.
