A new club to hit, DJs dropping in from London and an afterparty with Burj Al Arab views…
We’re in for a big Friday, and we’ve rounded up four nights happening all across the city that you should be heading to.
If you’re Marina way, check out Inner City Zoo. The new club is opening in the Rixos Premium JBR and promises a blended soundtrack of house, R&B and commercial hits. On The Palm? DJ and producer Black Coffee at El Chiringuito is our pick. For Jumeirah residents, there’s a pop party for the post-brunchers at Insta-worthy spot 360. And for those that are Downtown, new night Because We Can is an alternative one to hit up at the club part of Bridgewater Tavern.
