Double the fun for ladies at The Gate
Ladies night at Ibn Battuta Gate offers not one but two fantastic venues to choose from every Tuesday. Plump for your favourite bar and hang out with the girls all night or flit between the two for double the fun.

As the night develops and the atmosphere intensifies, move across to the elegant Sinatra Lounge which has teamed up with Diablo nightclub for a musical evening courtesy of the hotel’s resident DJ who will play a variety of favourites all night.
Gentlemen can also enjoy special attention with a four-bottle bucket deal for just AED 99.
