But there’s a big artist flying in for the free-entry farewell party…

Fresh from the news that two Dubai venues are to close down, a third Dubai stalwart is set to shut its doors, as Nasimi Beach has announced it will not reopen after May.

Nasimi is the latest outlet, joining Marina nightclub Societe and iconic outdoor Jumeirah bar 360, in the list of long-serving venue’s that will no longer be open for business.

But it’s not all bad news as Nasimi is set to bring Brit singer and producer Example for its final farewell party on Friday May 4.


The day-to-night party will kick off at 11am, and entry will be free all day. In the day time, expect watersports, volleyball and lively acoustic sets beachside.

As night falls, Nasimi’s resident DJs will take to the decks, and there will be free drinks for ladies from 6pm to 8pm. Example is set to see out the night.

First rising to fame in 2009 when his second studio album debuted at Number 4 in the UK album chart, Example’s single Won’t Go Quietly, quickly climbed the UK charts. The singer and producer then went on to have a string of hits including Kickstarts, Changed The Way You Kiss Me, and Kids Again.

Special drinks deals of selected beverages at Dhs30 will be available all night.

In its eight years of operation, Nasimi has become the go-to venue for legendary Halloween parties, full moon parties and New Year’s Eve events. It’s also hosted an array of superstar DJs and artists including Hardwell, David Guetta and Avicii.

But it’s not the end for the space, as we’re advised that “an exciting new chapter” is set to open in the new season. Although details are being kept tightly under wraps, we can’t wait to see what it is.
