Synonymous with celebrity guests and bottles bearing sparklers, Movida is a luxurious nightspot in central Dubai. Long and thin in layout, and lined with stacks of tables and private booths to host its steady stream of VIPs, the club retains a sense of the underground about it, which mirrors its five-star London sister venue perfectly. Movida has its fingers in every nightlife pie – offering clubbers a mix of fun party brands such as Sintillate and Candypants, as well as more edgy industry nights that regularly feature guest rappers and hip-hop DJs. And it’s this air of the unexpected that helps to set Movida apart.
