Dubai is winding down for the summer, so here are three places to see the season out in style.
Cirque le Soir, The Fairmont Hotel
One final freak out? Nope, the outrageous good time gurus at Cirque have packed in five hurrahs, starting on 30th May with Hip Hop Chic and back-to-back resident DJs playing the best of the season.
More colourful characters and raucous entertainment follows every night through to Friday, 3rd June, when the House of Freaks welcomes guests to the darker side of the circus.
Expensive but extensive entertainment. 10.30pm-3am. The Fairmont Hotel, SZR, near the World Trade Centre. Reservations: 05 099 email@example.com
Freshly Ground Sounds, Tribeca Dubai
Nothing says summer like a sizzling barbecue and the best in homegrown musical talent.
Freshly, the UAE’s independent community for rhythm makers, is out for the summer. But inside, because, heat.
On Sunday, 29th May, you can join a sweet finale party to close their super successful third season. Step into their (indoor) garden, grab an ice-cream and soak up the tunes from this simply wonderful young creative start-up.
Ice cream? Sweet. Sunday, 29th May, 6.30pm-midnight. Tribeca Dubai, JA Ocean View Hotel. RSVP here.
Plus Minus, Media One Hotel
More or less the closest thing we get to underground clubbing in Dubai, award-winning Plus Minus is kicking its heels up once last time before the summer.
By way of saying thank you to all its loyal party people, residents Haidz and Gabriel Floriani are putting on a free show at Dubai’s Media One Hotel.
One for the real party heroes.
The summer might be over, but the weekend has landed. On42, Media One Hotel. 3rd June, 9pm-3am. Free entry, but you can reserve a table: firstname.lastname@example.org/050 359 9798 or 056 921 8484
