Nightclub
$$$$
“Superstar DJs behind the decks and international celebrities mingling with Dubai’s “it crowd” on the dancefloor make this one of the most talked about venues in the city. Sparkling is an understatement for a lounge designed in honour of fashion legend Roberto Cavalli, and the crystal chandeliers, walls and waterfalls all give it the shine you would expect. Despite the obvious effort to look good and be seen to do so, the crowd here know how to party and it is not all for posing.”
