US rap star Nelly coming to Drai’s Dubai

R&B hero to headline brand-new Las Vegas day-to-night club

Following the huge launch of Drai’s Dubai over the weekend, the Las Vegas import has followed it up with a second massive announcement.

If you didn’t make it to the grand opening of this brand-new day-to-night club, then check out our write-up here (rap star Tory Lanez wasn’t able to make it in the end, but UK hip-hop hero Craig David was a more than able last-minute replacement). If you did go, then you’ve got another top reason to head back for more nightlife action this weekend.

Hopping back over from the UK to the other side of the Atlantic, US rap and R&B star Nelly is coming to heat up the club on Friday February 16.

Known for massive hits Hot In Herre, Ride wit Me, Dilemma, Country Grammar, Just a Dream and loads more, you’re guaranteed a night filled with an almost endless stream of hits.

The best part of all? The club is totally free entry. Bar prices, for a high-end club (that’s been imported from Las Vegas), are a little more than you’d find during happy hour, but are still a reasonable Dhs60-70 per drink, and roughly Dhs1,700 for premium spirits.

Head along for a day chilling out by the club’s sprawling pool, with some great beats spinning out from the resident DJ, and end it with a tip-top performance from one of the urban music scene’s biggest and most decorated names.

Free. Fri Feb 16, noon-midnight. Meydan Racecourse Grandstand, Nad Al Sheba, (052 388 8857).
