Get ready party people, a brand new nightlife venue is opening in DIFC and it’s set to shake things up for those looking for a luxury night out.

Mantis can be found in Emirates Financial Towers and ahead of its opening on Friday March 15, we’ve headed inside for a first look around.

The 8,500 square foot space boasts a state-of-the-art light and sound system, a central DJ booth with a dramatic mantis head on the front, and a long bar which runs almost all the way down one side of the lounge

From the kitchen, guests can expect culinary creations including ‘sophisticated Asian and South American-inspired dishes and classic European favourites’, according to a statement. This will include sushi rolls and sashimi, fresh oysters, and ceviche, as well as some more hearty dishes. We’re suitably intrigued…

As well as a merchandise room, Mantis also boasts an ‘Immersive Room’ – a quieter, more laid-back space where guests can go to chill out. The Immersive Room will serve up fresh shots of  Kopi Luwak coffee, one the world’s most expensive beans, for those looking for a post or pre-party pick me up that comes at a price.

Initially, Mantis will be open on Thursdays and Fridays, with more nights set to be introduced in the new year.

We’ll see you there…

Mantis, Emirates Financial Towers, DIFC, Dubai, 9pm to late, Thursday and Friday from Friday March 15.
