After much anticipation, The House Party Bar is now open for business, and Time Out Dubai has been for a quick look behind the scenes.
The cool, retro bar is in the Fairmont Dubai and is boasting a unique theme, which as you guessed, goes along the lines of a house party. Think red plastic cups, Britney tunes and all your other favourite ’90s songs, movies and games.
The ’90s throwback bar is promising to be the “coolest new hangout in town”.
"You’re literally in a house while partying," a representative told Time Out Dubai. "We're bringing the house party to a venue."
From retro furnishings – right down to the floral wallpaper – there’s a bedroom, sitting room, bathroom, kitchen and more. And as you can see from the photos, it’s a full house you'll be entering. The team has gone all-out with the theme, kitting out the bar thoroughly.
The living room boasts an old-school VHS, there are space hoppers in the kid’s bedroom and posters of your favourite ’90s stars all over the walls. There’s even a games room with arcade games, Nintendo and hops pong.
Pizza will be served to you in boxes – as if it was really being delivered to a house party. Other snacks include burgers and brownies.
The House Party Bar – a concept originally from London – is arriving in the place of Cirque Le Soir, which will still exist, but will be relocated to a new space, sharing an entrance with The House Party Bar. Cirque Le Soir will be kept the same in terms of its concept, but will become more of a "VIP club". Rest assured, the performances will continue.
It’s a second new opening for the Sheikh Zayed Road – alongside Trophy Room, which opened earlier this month boasting some interesting snacks, including golden chicken nuggets. Our Best Seafood Restaurant 2017, Catch Dubai, also recently shut in the hotel, with a new concept promised, so it’s looking like the hotel could be our new go-to spot.
Dig out your scrunchies, it’s time to party ’90s-style.
Open Mon, Thu & Fri 6pm-3am. Sun, Tue, Wed & Sat 6pm-2am. Fairmont Dubai, Sheikh Zayed Road (050 995 5400).
