Thought the rising mercury heralded the end of nightlife for the summer? Think again. Monthly club night Ministry of Sound returns to the Habtoor Grand’s XL Beach Club on Thursday June 2, with a headline set from UK-based house DJ Gemma Furbank, with support from Dubai’s favourite Ministry residents Mark Pickup and Kristian Valdini. The night will also serve as a launch party for the venue’s roof (yes, we’ll be interested to see how that’s going to work too), turning the club into a fully air-conditioned nightspot to see you through the scorching summer temperatures. For VIP and table reservations, call 056 640 6161. Open 8pm-3am. Dhs100, ladies free before 11pm. XL Beach Club, Habtoor Grand Resort & Spa.
