I loveBollywood music. I hum it in the shower, play retro remixes in my car, and for areally intense, high adrenaline workout, nothing comes quite close tobhangra-inspired beats. My friends introduced me to ‘Desi Nights’, aka clubbingto Bollywood tunes, and this is how I met DJ Bharat Sakhrani.
An accountant by day and DJ by night, DJ Bharat really knows how to keep the dance floor alight and effortlessly mixes in English, Arabic and other world tunes.
Vote for Bharat! Under 2 years into his night gig, this ultra-talented young man has been nominated for the prestigious title of ‘Best DJ’ at the annual Ahlan Masala Awards. He’s got my vote! Do vote for him by clicking here, and have a read on what he has to say about Desi DJing in Dubai.
I was at Sensation Dubai this Friday night, the world’s biggest dance party! Set at the Desert Dome at the rather elusive Bab Al Shams arena, getting to the venue was an adventure in itself. We had a pair of deluxe tickets that gave us access to the exclusive buffet and bar, and we managed to get a cosy table with spectacular views of the stage.
Every New Year, the fireworks at Burj Khalifa manage to make works headlines but being the claustrophobic that I am, I have never ventured there for a fear of the crowds. Sensation Dubai’s opening act must come pretty close to the epic fireworks; the stage, the lighting, and the spectacular show of lights looks like something from outer space!
Headed by the very amicable Chef Alain Devahive who’s impressive list of experiences includes a long stint at the much coveted 3-Michelin starred restaurant El Bulli(Spain), LALUZ at DIFC is one of Dubai’s latest Spanish imports.
La Luz is Spanish for ‘light’, and back in Barcelona, this restaurant chain is a culinary icon, well reputed for its Catalonian and Mediterranean cuisine. Keeping to tradition yet revamping the presentation with a few touches of molecular gastronomy thrown in now and then, expect to get a taste of Spanish cuisine like never before.
Brace yourselves Dubai… the world’s leading dance event is coming to our city on Friday 11th November 2016, and it is going to be absolutely epic! Mark this date on your calendar, because we are about to be treated to the grandest party in the desert ever!
The organizers have really gone all out with this dance festival, and Sensation Dubai is set to rock the city at Dubai Desert Dome (Bab Al Shams). Just look at how spectacular the venue looks!
Antique Bazaar is an experience in itself. Apart from the delicious lineup of very popular Indian dishes the restaurant has to offer, the interiors have the look and feel of a bygone palatial courtyard, complete with intricately hand-carved furnishings and portraits of mythical royalty.
Book at table around 9 pm any day of the week, and you are in for a visual treat. Antique Bazaar has its very own band of Bollywood singers and dancers who keep diners entertained with a whole array of old and new numbers, and even take on song requests.
