Seven big nights out in Dubai this week
Coolio hits White, Lovely Laura takes to the stage at Zero Gravity, the fun continues at the official Party In The Park after-party, and more…
It’s another massive week in Dubai’s nightlife scene, with so much partying to cram in. Kicking things off with a hip hop night at Boom Room, we take things open format on Wednesday for a weekly dose of circus-style partying as Black Tape continues its weekly residency at Cirque Le Soir.
As the weekend arrives, we’ll be tearing our dancing feet between the official Party In The Park after-party hosted by those Indie music maestros at Step On, and the fourth annual Sensation Dubai at Meydan.
On Saturday, you’ll find us recovering from it all at Zero Gravity, as the Lovely Laura takes to the stage at Supernatural.
