What is it?
Named after the Philippines’ popular tourist hotspot, Boracay Nightclub offers a modern ambiance and entertaining song and dance numbers that club goers can enjoy with their food and drinks.
What to eat
Don’t miss their specialty Filipino cuisine, such as crispy pata or deep fried pork knuckles served with a side of atsara (grated unripe papaya). If you’re with a group, the Boracay sampler is a good start and includes sisig, breaded chicken wings, barbecued liempo, grilled dory and grilled squid (Dh100).
What to see
Classy interior decor, colourful lighting and a huge LED screen on stage really add to the entertainment vibe at Boracay. The entertainment show here is also tastefully put together and includes well choreographed dance numbers, song segments, and plenty of band music.
What to do
Come at 7 p.m. and have a set dinner for two for Dh79 (with drinks), or stay until late to enjoy the stage entertainment and non-stop music that’s going to get you on your feet.
What we like
We liked the big crowd on a Thursday night and the interesting entertainment numbers. It’s like watching a Philippine TV variety show (the only difference is entertainers converse in English), with comfort food to match.
What we don’t like
When the crowds swell, service can be slow (sometimes almost non-existent). Be prepared to wave your hands like crazy just to be noticed by any of the servers.
