House music lovers, listen up; world-famous Ibiza brand Café Mambo is coming to Dubai.
The weekly party will take place at the brand-new Soho Garden at Meydan Racecourse, and launches on Friday December 29.
House music stars Christian and Alan Anadon, also known as the Mambo Brothers, will be playing at the brand-new location on a monthly basis, while there will be live performances weekly from artists including Franky Rizardo, Josh Butler, Lovely Laura and Ben Santiago.
The brothers, who were born and raised in Ibiza, have played alongside artists including Carl Cox and Roger Sanchez, the latter of whom will be kicking off celebrations at Soho Garden’s official launch party on Friday December 22.
Café Mambo, located in Sant Antoni de Portmany, Ibiza, was established in 1994, and the brothers have now taken the Mambo brand around the globe, to the delight of house music fans.
The hugely ambitious 14,000 sq m Soho Garden will bring new restaurants, bars and nightclubs to Dubai, alongside swimming pools and a 10,000-capacity concert area, with the promise to bring “an unprecedented level of service with the best live talent” to the complex.
With aesthetics described as a “unique mix of eclectic luxury, with laid-back chic”, the project will be fully operational by 2018, with the first section – including the pool club and several food and beverage outlets – set to open on December 22.
The 800-capacity phase one of Soho Garden will include four bars including Indoor Glasshouse Bar, slick spot Bellini Bar, fun and laid-back Tiki Bar and the chic Negroni Bar.
Café Mambo will launch on December 29 at 9pm, and entry is free.
