There was talk of an electric violinist, but Miami DJ Snezana (who is, incidentally, the most Australian-sounding DJ from Miami we’ve ever encountered) opted instead for her trademark tambourine to thunder through her upbeat, entertaining sets. While we couldn’t fault Ms Snezana for raw enthusiasm or finely-honed talent, The Habtoor’s Horizon Lounge is still finding its feet as a first-stop Thursday-night destination: bored and overly boisterous security, combined with row after row of empty ‘reserved’ tables, reminded us that there’s not much point turning up before 11pm, no matter what the occasion. Having said that, by midnight the outdoor deck was thumping and, despite the slow start, we had to tear ourselves away from the dancefloor at home time.
