Dane in the Desert: Square, Steakhouse and Beaches

02 Nov 2017

Singer and DJ Dane Bowers spills the goss on life in the sandpit...



And the coolest Dane-approved decorated venue award goes to... Square! In the world’s tallest hotel, the JW Marriott Marquis Dubai, sits a venue that is just amazing to look at. The vibe is an abandoned subway station with brilliant street art on the walls. Every Friday night Square hosts Juicy, playing the best in old skool RnB, hip-hop and house. It’s worth a visit just to snap the artwork while listening to some old favourites.

Dubai Lads Night Out

Remember in my first ever Ahlan! column I promised you I would try to find things for us guys to do in the UAE? Well, I think I might have found a brilliant evening. One to rival any ladies’ night...

I discovered, with a bunch of my mates, this incredible gentlemen’s evening on Palm Jumeirah. It has amazing steak and a great live band, making Seafire Steakhouse a perfect Wednesday spot for a lads’ night out.

While there, we (bravely) tried the massive 76oz Titans Tomahawk steak. It was a beast, but a tasty one. There are also handcrafted signature beverages.

The band were amazing. Called The Soul Society, they pumped out funk and soul tunes throughout the evening.

It’s one for the boys, but would also make a cool date night. Atlantis the Palm is such a great setting.
