The better nightlife capital of the Middle East - DUBAI or BEIRUT?

These two cities seem to regularly come up as some of the best cities in the Middle East to 'party' and enjoy the nightlife.

Which have you heard more about? Have you experienced either one? Which would you prefer?

Anything else you'd like to add about Dubai, Beirut or nightlife in general in the Middle East? Is there another city that should be included as equal, or even second tier?

I'm with invincibl3 on this that tel aviv should definitely be included. Aside from the plentiful bars, clubs and cafes, I'm positive it's got to be the only middle eastern city to have a vibrant gay nightlife as well.

I know a Middle Eastern guy that does not live in Lebanon and he has travelled through several Arab countries and he stated that Beirut is the best bar and nightclub scene in the Arab world.

Tel Aviv , Then again why go to the Middle East for nightlife? The Western World obviously thrives in that respect, although Israel is probably the most Westernized country in the Middle East, hence good nightlife.

Istanbul, Tel Aviv, Beirut.

Beirut is "Little Paris"... amazing city, beautiful people, great food and awesome culture!

I've read good things about Amman and Jordan in general. How does that compare?

I agree with this top 3, Dubai is not in the same league as those three. Istanbul is on another level if you want a 24/7 lifestyle. Always something going on no matter the time of night.
