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!


Conceptualized and created by well-known (and rather controversial) Italian restaurateur Paolo Roberto Rella, TRE is an Italian fine-dining restaurant locatedĀ in Nassima Hotel (Sheikh Zayed Road, Dubai).

TRE is ‘three’ in Italian, and the restaurant gets its name from the fact that it is divided into 3 separate levels, and spans from the 49th to the 51st floor. The first (or rather, 49th floor) is the dining area for foodies. It has a more casual restaurant vibe allowing for families and friends to socialize over great food and spectacular views of Dubai. It is the only floor at TRE where children are allowed.

The 50th floor is a lounge bar, complete with a resident DJ and an impressive array of Mediterranean-inspired tapas. The 51st floor is a sound-proofed cigar lounge with live jazz performances and soft rock.
