Gatsby: The Dinner Experience is coming to the QE2

Is that a green light blinking over at Port Rashid we see? Possibly, seeing as the notorious Jay Gatsby is hosting one of his big dining events there, and you’re invited to party.

Theatre by QE2 is setting up ‘Gatsby: The Dinner Experience’ this October, and it’s looking to be just as sophisticated and fantastical like in F. Scott Fitzgerald’s modern-American classic.

Hosted by the same folk that brought us the 1920s themed Gatsby party earlier this year, the dinner will take place from Thursday October 10 until Saturday October 12 from 8.30pm onwards.

Guests of Gatsby can expect a three-course set menu to tuck into, along with unlimited house beverages and soft drinks.

This isn’t just your regular dining experience, as performers, kitted out in 1920s-themed fancy dress, will interact with and involve the audience, not just on stage, but all around, too.

You wouldn’t want to disappoint with casual wear, would you? Be sure to dress to impress and become the swanky socialite you truly are.

Ready to head back to the 1920s? Tickets start at Dhs395 for silver tier, Dhs495 for gold and Dhs595 for platinum, and you can book the special experience by heading to or by visiting

“Gatsby is a great story to tell on the QE2. The ship’s heritage, of sailing to New York, carrying the crème of high society, its glamour and prestige is the ideal backdrop for such a story,” says chief operating officer Maxine English.

“Gatsby makes very good use of the unique spaces on the ship and combining QE2’s unique services such as its rooms and F&B offering, showcasing how the QE2 can be flexible and innovative in creating new ways to enjoy theatre.”
