We shed a tiny discoball of a tear when we heard last month that panoramic party sport 360˚ is to close, as part of the grand refurbishment of Jumeirah Beach Hotel.
Now the circular terrace with the best sunset views in town is to go out with a 72-hour mega party. From Wednesday 9th to Friday 11th May, party under the stars one last time with an unmissable line-up of 360°’s original DJs and the beautiful backdrop of the Burj Al Arab.
A full rundown of the send off for 360°…
Wednesday, 9th May
Bye-bye Back 2 Back: Kicking off the 72-hour celebrations, DJ Benyamin and DJ Sam B will host the final Back 2 Back session, spinning the best of old school hiphop, funk, soul and R&B. Organised by Loco Events, the party goes under the stars through to 3am.
Thursday, 10th May
Must-have Sunstroke: house night ‘Sunstroke’ teams up with ‘Must Have Soul.’Expect old-school hits from ‘Must Have Soul’ founder Simon Reid, Sunstroke’s head honcho Jack Woodcock and residents John Spoor and Danny Kwang.
Friday, 11th May
Lovin 360 with Rone Jaxx & Friends: bye-bye double brunches, back-to-back DJ sets and the best in R&B, hip-hop, funk, soul and timeless classics. Rone Jaxx, CN Williams and Jack Woodcock take charge of the decks, while the 180° Brunch runs between 3pm-6pm and 8pm-11pm, serving unlimited house beverages and sharing platters of Pan-Asian nibbles for AED 295.
So what’s next for 360°? It looks like Jumeirah Restaurant Group’s popular scenic spot will not reopen after the hotel renovations that will see man-made peninsula Marsa Al Arab add 2.2km of beachline to the area. However 360˚can look back on a decade of delighting diners and revellers, of hosting parties and thousands of selfies – and one final weekend of good times.
“As the old saying goes, all good things must come to an end and it’s with real mixed emotions that we prepare the final goodbye of 360° Dubai – one of the city’s most famous spots,” said Emma Banks, General Manager, Jumeirah Restaurant Group. “The flashback celebrations will shape up in a weekend of serious nostalgia, with plenty of funk, a dash of soul and retro hits, taking our loyal followers back to the good old days.”
