Last Thursday night at Dubai’s hottest new club was much like its recent New Year’s Eve party: absolutely packed and, for want of a better word, banging. DJ John from Lebanon pumped out predominantly high-energy house, a smidgen of pop and a little bit of R&B to keep things interesting. The energy among the crowd was also sky-high, despite the absence of the live acts and aerial acrobatics we saw last time we visited (after all, circus performers seem to be de rigueur in most clubs these days: think Boudoir, Sanctuary and Nasimi, to name but a few). The overall vibe of the night? Many super-hot ladies in skin-tight dresses and fierce stilettos, as well as men in leather jackets and suave scarves now that it’s, erm, chilly.
