    There are clubs inside the western-style resorts but remember this is a muslim country and has conservative values. Alcohol is strictly illegal, but tolerated in those western resorts, but being drunk in public will get you into lots of trouble. Relationships between unmarried people are also illegal (but tolerated among westerners in western hotels - for the sake of tourism). Flirting with or kissing someone who is not your wife could get you into trouble. I'm not saying it doesn't go on, but you don't want to draw attention to yourself by being badly behaved. Stay nice.

    Dubai has had some high profile cases of couples (not married) kissing in public, being arrested and going to jail, and then deported. These are western couples in western style hotels, so the thing is to make sure that you use your discretion and common sense. It is a muslim country running under sharia law and what you may think is "innocent" is not seen the same way in the UAE.

    I am seeing more and more hotels asking for marriage certificates to "prove" marriage before renting out rooms to couples. The high end hotels are not the same, but some of the smaller "family" places in say Al Barsha are definitely starting to ask.

    This is not to say that things do not happen - of course they do and if you want something, then you can find it. Prostitution is rife and very available.

    As Phil says, dont draw attention, do not flirt with locals, do not be drunk in public or cause a scene, do not drink and drive....etc..etc and you will be fine. Discrete works best. about 5 years ago

    Be good and remember you are only a guest in this country. The same way you would not like locals from here to mess in your country so don't do it. And finally I think you are just trying to be provocative. Chris about 5 years ago
