Another super club is now open in Dubai, and this one is well worth checking out…
Get ready Dubai, as yet another celebrity favourite and US export 1 OAK has opened its doors. The super club joins the ranks of Soho Beach and Drai’s Dubai as the latest luxury haunt adding to Dubai’s nightlife scene, and we’ve had a first look inside.
1 Oak is a global nightlife destination, with locations in major cities across the world:
Born out of the namesake ‘One Of A Kind’, the super club is set to open four times a week at its JW Marriott Marquis home.
Entering the venue feels like you’re heading to a secret party, or following Alice down the rabbit hole to a trendy wonderland that only a handful of people have been invited to. It’s a narrow tunnel entrance, with writing penned across the walls and a monochrome print floor that feels like it goes on forever.
A mirrored VIP area is dimly lit with red hues and decked out with avant-garde art installations that are part nightclub, part trendy exhibition.
On the night we visit, the main club area quickly packs out with revelers. It’s a hip hop and urban music policy, with a collection of tables all around the edge, and a DJ booth that looks out over a small but well-populated dance floor.
It’s the first permanent venue for the super club in the UAE, although the brand has hosted several pop-ups during the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.
1OAK is open on Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10pm to 3am, with weekly events to be announced soon.
