Brand-new open mic night arrives at Dubai’s PizzaExpress Live

Here’s how you can play on PizzaExpress Live’s mega stage for free

Brand-new open mic night arrives at Dubai’s PizzaExpress Live

Music fans of Dubai, there’s a brand-new open mic night for you to get involved with.

Whether you’re a composer, singer, guitarist, saxophonist, harpist, or whatever takes your fancy, you can show off your skills at La La Live, which is taking place every Wednesday night at PizzaExpress Live in Business Bay.
It calls itself a “new event for creative minds”, where artists are encouraged to head over and get up onto the open stage.

Given this ace live music venue recently hosted Newton Faulkner (who had this to say), you know this is a top place to show off your work, or belt out that new cover you’ve been working on.

The night kicks off at 8pm and runs through until 11.30pm, and it’s completely free to attend upon reserving a table for the night.

The arrival of a new open mic night is massively encouraging for Dubai’s music scene, with Go Play The World currently the main platform for singers, songwriters and musicians to easily get on stage and perform every week. Go Play The World runs at Tr!beca Kitchen + Bar every Sunday night, and if you want to get involved then it’s recommended you arrive at 7pm to sign up – it’s first come first serve, and it gets very, very busy.

Alternatively, do you fancy a whole night of funky Latin American vibes, live music, dancers and, best of all, pizza?

Well you’ve got a whole new reason to get out and about on a Friday evening, because PizzaExpress Live has also launched a brand-new Cuban night that’s bound to get you moving and shaking.

From this Friday, and every Friday until the end of the year, you can head to Club Cubano, where a top Cuban band has been brought in straight from Havana (in Cuba) especially for it.

Sincopa Ti will be hitting the stage every Friday at around 9pm, but we recommend heading over a tad earlier to make the most of the happy hour running from 4pm until 8pm every day.
La La Live: Free. Wed 8pm-11.30pm. Ongoing. Club Cubano: Free. Fri 4pm-11.30pm. PizzaExpress Live, DoubleTree by Hilton Dubai – Business Bay (04 566 5722).
