The club, which has a catchphrase “1 of a kind”, was launched on 17th Street in Chelsea, New York in 2007, and has since set up outposts around the world including in Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Mexico and now Dubai.
Joining the ranks of Drai’s, Soho Beach, Dome and BASE as recent additions to the city’s nightlife scene (as well as Cannes superclub Gotha), the US hotspot 1 OAK looks set to be a massive new name for partygoers.
And in event better news, there will three chances to party during opening week, with 1 Oak being open on Tuesday March 6, Thursday March 8 and Friday March 9.
1 Oak has capacity for 500 partygoers, and the venue will “combine art, fashion and culture with fresh hip-hop sounds, and a sleek, stylish ambiance,” so says the team behind it.
The venue, which promises to be “opulent and exclusive” with a “luxurious and sophisticated atmosphere” is in the space that previously held VIP Room in JW Marriott Marquis Dubai in Business Bay.
1 Oak will be open on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday each week and interiors look to be dark and lavish, featuring art installations and neon structures.
Famous faces that are often seen in the US clubs include Beyoncé, Jay-Z, Katy Perry, Kanye West, Rihanna and more. The team says it is expecting top names from Paris Fashion Week to be heading to Dubai for the launch.
“With the launch of 1 OAK, we are starting a new era for Dubai’s nightlife scene,” says CEO of Bulldozer Group Evgeny Kuzin. “We wanted to create something unique, while maintaining style and substance, for Dubai’s elite social crowd.”
