Hayan Abou Assali
The General Manager of Cavalli Club, Restaurant & Lounge, who just keeps making the club better and better
- Cavalli is coming up to its 10th anniversary. We’re the longest-running club in Dubai, so to still be winning awards and getting recognised is a great achievement. I am so proud of the team for keeping the reputation strong.
- We’ve got a full schedule each week of different nights – my favourite is the return of Flashdance, an ’80s and ’90s night every Tuesday. Our Midnight Brunch is really successful every Sunday and people are astounded by the live entertainment and food on offer for such a reasonable price.
- Working alongside so many talented people makes me want to work harder to make Cavalli better and better. Our motto is “if you’re not number one, you are nothing” – I live and breathe this!
- Over the summer, we’re going to work on how we can make Cavalli even better. We’re looking at transforming the venue inside to make it more appealing to diners. I think people forget that Cavalli is a restaurant as well as a club, so there’ll be a few changes.
