4 great parties in Dubai this week
Überhaus X Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE
Beirut-born clubs are hardly new on the Dubai nightlife scene. White on the rooftop at Meydan is a Lebanese import, as is Indie in DIFC. The pop-up, though, seems to be gaining a favour as a means of bringing that unique Beiruti vibe to Dubai: Mar Mikhael’s Central Station Boutique Bar, for instance, is doing something at Billionaire Mansion this month.
Without question, though, the arrival of Überhaus to Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE this weekend is the most spectacular – so big, in fact, we’re not sure “pop-up” is exactly the right word for its arrival. The centrepiece of the party experience is a huge dome adorned with panels that illuminate in time with the music.
Where: Blue Marlin Ibiza UAE
When: Thursday, March 9
