One of the most recognisable names in music now has his very own bar here in Dubai.
Quincy Jones' first ever venture of its kind, known as Q's, has launched at Palazzo Versace hotel, right on the banks of Dubai Creek.
The legend, known for collaborations with anyone from Frank Sinatra to Amy Winehouse, Michael Jackson to Whitney Houston (oh, and 36 significant music awards to boot), has been part of the design process from the start, helping create a space described as an 'intimate living room space'.
Furniture is, of course, a classy nod to the leather and mahogany-filled jazz clubs of yesteryear, while the food and beverages on offer are inspired by both New York and New Orleans.
According to official information, considerable effort has been put into making sure the acoustics are 'unmatched', with plans to bring international stars for both one off gigs and residencies. The first of those will be Ollie Howell, a widely-respected instrumentalist from the UK.
In keeping with the traditional style of jazz clubs, dress code is smart casual.
