World-famous Las Vegas nightclub Drai’s launching on February 9

Dubai’s latest import to join super-venue Soho Garden

At the start of 2018, it feels like this city is on a mission, a mission to bring the best nightclubs and hotspots in the world to your doorstep.

We already know that Cannes import Gotha is opening soon, and we also broke the news that US celeb spot 1 OAK is due to open in Business Bay in the coming weeks. On top of the arrival of Soho Garden at Meydan Racecourse in December last year, more major names are dropping their hat into the ring to be part of the new venue development – including Ibiza import Café Mambo.

Now, famous Las Vegas venue Drai’s has confirmed it will be opening on Friday February 9, so it’s a good job we all had a bit of a breather over Christmas and New Year – because there are now loads of massive new venues worthy of your attention over the coming months.

In its Las Vegas home, Drai’s is known as a swanky, late-night pool party hotspot, and if its roots are anything to go by, Dubai is going to be getting itself a towering new addition to the club scene. And we’re seriously excited about this.

Think luxury tables, some of the world’s top DJs and a massive, extravagant pool party with luxury cabanas and sun loungers.

As Friday February 9 gets ever closer we’ll be bringing you the details of who will be coming to perform at the launch event, so watch this space.
