The Business Bay venue was open for 12 months…

World famous French superclub, Gotha, opened its first Middle East venue in March 2018 to much anticipation. The launch saw performances from Diddy, Steve Aoki and Idris Elba but it seems as though the 14,000 square foot venue has sadly closed.

The club, which originates from Cannes, had 47 VIP tables and promised to offer a ‘unique and animated clubbing experience’. In Cannes, the original club closed in August 2017 but is promising a reopening in the coming months.

Gotha Dubai was open every Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night but has ceased from posting on its social media channels and its website and reservation phone line are now inactive, suggesting the club’s closure.

At the moment, we’re not sure what will replace Gotha, but with 2019 seeing the addition of new hotspots such as Sky 2.0 and Mantis, the nightlife scene continues to evolve at a rapid rate, so we can’t wait to see what gets announced next.

Although one nightclub has closed, there’s still plenty more to look forward to. We’re already looking forward to the opening of Madinat’s J54 Studio and District in Rixos Premium JBR, taking the place of Inner City Zoo.
