5 parties in Dubai this week
We welcome back Because We Can hip-hop DJ Cherelle Chambers
Well, well, well... what a busy month it has been! Everything is kicking off with my weekly Let’s Funk and Neo Soul Waves nights. It was so exciting joining forces with Lucky Voice at their grand opening and the launch of Let’s Funk – my new night full of funk, soul and Motown tunes – on the same night. There’s already such an incredible energy at Lucky Voice.
Currently, I’m working on putting together the Disco Queens New Year’s Eve event there; we have a saxophonist, a singer and a lineup of DJs. Expect lots of glitter and wigs! Oh, and don’t forget your platforms to wear as we take you on a journey through disco. Dress up is compulsory for this party!
I’ve got lots in the pipeline for 2017 with some special guests appearing at Because We Can. I’m looking to bring a very special DJ over, so keep an ear to the ground for that announcement.
I can’t believe it’s Christmas week. I have some gigs in London but will be back in Dubai for the lead up to New Year. Dubai is just amazing over this period; all the Christmas markets, festive brunches and beach fun. I couldn’t think of a place I’d rather be.

It overlooks Ski Dubai – a winter wonderland, or as close to one as we will get in the desert. It’s the perfect place to celebrate the season. There’s a festive canapé menu for AED99 and the special beverage package is AED110 per person, including festive mixed drinks and canapés, or go for a two-course or three-course meal. Maybe opt for a cheeky ski beforehand to get you in the Christmas spirit?
