Villa Romana in Dubai

George Clooney's favourite hangout set to open at Habtoor Grand

Knowledge story, The Knowledge

We’ve heard about all sorts of exciting new openings of late, and are pleased to learn that the much-mumbled-about Villa Romana (aka the Saint Tropez hangout enjoyed by George Clooney) is finally set to open next week at the Habtoor Grand. We’re told there will be a series of private invite-only events on Saturday October 27 and Sunday 28, ahead of a public launch on Monday 29. However, it may have competition in the form of Ibiza-based bar brand Café del Mar, which is apparently on its way to Dubai. While earlier talk of an October launch may have proved premature, we’ve heard it should be launching in Dubai soon.
