Drai’s is part of Soho Garden, a 14,000 sq m complex that offers up dining, poolside lounging and more, at Meydan Racecourse Grandstand at Nad Al Sheba.
Drai’s Dubai, which has capacity for 2,000 partygoers and room for a further 3,000 when the indoor space opens, is an all-day “beach club” (notably without an actual beach), transforming into an exclusive nightspot as evening falls. Think VIP tables and a massive, extravagant pool party with luxury cabanas and sun loungers.
In its Las Vegas home Drai’s is known as a swanky, late-night pool party hotspot where massive DJs perform frequently, and if its roots are anything to go by, Dubai is going to be getting itself a towering new addition to the club scene. We can’t wait to check it out next weekend.
Drai’s is one of several huge new clubs exploding onto the Dubai nightlife scene this year, including Cannes import Gotha, which is opening soon and US celeb spot 1 OAK, which is due to open Business Bay in the coming weeks.
