Two of Dubai’s most loved nightspots have shut up shop for good – but the hole will be filled by an even bigger venue.
Both Trilogy and Jambase have been axed to make way for a new ‘super club’ hailing from the party capital of Ibiza.
It is understood a new club from Pacha Ibiza will fill the space taken up by both venues. A spokesman from the international clubbing brand confirmed that a ‘new franchise at Dubai’ is on the way.
The new nightlife venture will take the place of one of Dubai’s best-known and most-loved venues.
Renowned Dubai club Trilogy closed for the last time in the early hours of Saturday July 6, nearly three years after re-opening with a headline set from Mark Ronson in September 2010. Since that date the club has hosted an impressive roster of weekly international DJs, including the likes of 2ManyDJs, Sasha and Kevin Saunderson. Meanwhile the neighbouring Jambase – which billed itself as ‘Dubai’s only supper club’ – closed for the last time on the same night, after years serving up classy food and live music in a jazz club-style atmosphere.
Chris Chudley, assistant F&B manager at Souk Madinat Jumeirah, said: ‘The closure of Jambase and Trilogy is indeed the end of an era and it’s sad to say goodbye to two iconic venues. The best nights in Dubai happened in Jambase and Trilogy over the years.
‘But this is also an exciting time because later this year Souk Madinat Jumeirah will be home to Dubai’s newest and most exciting nightlife venue, and that is definitely something to look forward to.’
