Club news: VIP Room is closing its doors tomorrow
But could there be another huge Las Vegas brand coming to the UAE?
International brand VIP Room is to close tomorrow night after almost five years.
The club, located in Downtown’s JW Marriott Marquis, has become a staple on the clubbing scene in Dubai, regularly bringing big name artists and celebrity acts to Dubai such as Rick Ross, Busta Rhymes and Flo Rida
The hotspot will close tomorrow, Tuesday October 24 with it’s final farewell, a night the club is calling it’s ‘Merci for your Love’ party.
However it’s not all bad news. The Facebook page for the event advertises that ‘in this case it’s À Bientôt/See you Soon and not Au Revoir/Goodbye’, also saying that ‘the best is yet to come’.
So for fans of the venue, we reckon you might be seeing VIP room back on the Dubai clubbing circuit in a different location in the coming months.
It comes shortly after the news that the Abu Dhabi pop up, which appears every year for the Formula One, will not be returning to its spot above Cipriani on Yas Island this year. Famed for bringing artists including Drake, Akon and 50 cent to the Emirates, the pop up quickly became the go-to place for partygoers at the Grand Prix.
So what will take the place of VIP Room Dubai?
Although nothing is confirmed, we know a lot of big names are coming to Dubai. Only last week, we broke the news that Las Vegas nightclub/ beachclub Drai’s will open in Dubai.
So our best guess is that another big name will replace the club, which also has venues in Paris, St Tropez, New York. We reckon 1 OAK, another Las Vegas icon could be in the running. The group, which already has clubs in New York, LA, Mexico and The Maldives as well as it’s La Vegas venue, advertises on its website that a Dubai branch is ‘coming soon’.
We’ll let you know if our predictions are right…
