What this makes for is a totally unbiased review process that you can absolutely trust. It’s honest, independent and without any sponsor or third party influences. There have been no nominations and there is no public vote.
This year, we’ve added a couple of new categories, to recognise the evolving nightlife scene. Best Bar with a View pays homage to the city’s top spots to take in a landmark, seaside or rooftop vista. To recognise the surge in brilliant original musicians in Dubai, we’ve renamed the Best Dubai Act category to Best Original Act, and added a separate category to award the city’s Best Bar Band.
The full list of categories and nominees is below, with the awards ceremony being hosted at the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai on Wednesday March 28. We’re recognising the brilliant, the sublime, the original and the outrageous, and revealing the winners of these definitive awards, on a night where we’re pulling out all the stops.
And, of course, it wouldn’t be an awards ceremony without a massive after-party, open entirely to the public. And you really don’t want to miss it. We’ll be revealing the location and acts soon, so stay tuned.
