Put your party shoes on…

A hump day draws to a close we’re already thinking about where to party in Dubai this weekend. After a few rainy spells this month, we’re looking at a clear forecast for this weekend, with a chance of banging tunes from some top international DJs.

Joel Corry

The man behind bangers such as Sorry and Head & Heart with MNEK, Joel Corry will be returning to Dubai this week, on Thursday January 20. Playing his hit tunes at The Penthouse, guests will be able to soak up the skyline while they listen to the dancefloor anthems. Reservations are required and there’s a minimum spend of Dhs1,000 per person for the evening.

The Penthouse, Five Palm Jumeirah, Palm Jumeirah, Thursday January 20, 11pm to 4pm, min spend Dhs1,000 per person. Tel: (0)52 900 4868. thepenthouse.co


If you remember the 2009 hit Going in For the Kill by La Roux, then you’ll have no doubt heard the Skream remix which became arguably more popular. Skream has had a 20-year career in DJing and is still going strong, with a performance lined up at Soho Garden Palm Jumeirah this Friday.
