Reviewed: Soho Garden
There are certain venues where, as soon as you set foot inside, you instinctively know you’re going to have a good time. Whether it’s down to the setting, the atmosphere, or perhaps both, you just know.
Soho Garden, a spectacular, gleaming location situated in Meydan, is one such place. To call the venue impressive would be to state the obvious. Billed as a ‘playground of discovery’ on its website, it’s hard to argue. A variety of bars, all with a strong selection of beverages, make you feel as though you’ve been on a pub crawl while remaining in one venue.
When we visit, Soho Garden is playing host to the Glitterbox night, a major player on the Ibiza scene famed for its disco-house sound and feel-good vibes. It’s their first event in Dubai and the venue is packed to the rafters. Initially a trendy, fashion-conscious crowd moves casually along to the music but it doesn’t take long for the dancefloor to fill. Everybody is in the mood to party.
Podium dancers join proceedings as the night gathers momentum while glitter is fired from cannons into a euphoric crowd when some of the classics are played. This is what you call having a good time.
But when a venue is as impressive as Soho Garden, it’s difficult not to.
