We were totes excited when we heard that Dead Man Walking actress Susan Sarandon was heading to the UAE to open a branch of her nightclub chain SPiN (the first outside of the USA and Canada). The celebrity hot spot is set to open in Dubai's Wafi in partnership with Dubai-based entrepreneurs, the Alaymour brothers.
According to Susan, SPiN will be “the sexiest and swankiest ping-pong lounge and nightclub in the world, right here in Dubai”. The club will feature eleven gold-plated ping pong tables, three bars and a DJ arena complete with a dance floor. Nice!
SPiN's New York branch is super-popular and is often frequented by the A-list. It was featured on Kim and Kourtney Take New York, in an episode that saw Kim display her not-so-great paddle skills against ex-husband Kris Humphries. The Jonas Brothers totes love the place too are and often spotted battling it out with their bestie Justin Bieber, though, according to their tweets, they are yet to surpass his amazeball ping-pong skills.
For the May launch of SPiN, Susan will be winging her way to Dubai with four of her celeb pals and, what a coincidence, it just so happens that Justin will be in town for the opening of his fave club (Bieber plays Dubai on 4 May)! Wow, we can't wait! Susan, if you're reading, Ahlan! would love to be on the guest list.
