And yet another nightclub opens in Dubai. But this one, contrary to what it may seem, is a bit more than your average late night dance club – it’s a playground. From the dramatic, mysterious interior design to an exceptional list of upcoming international DJs, Mansion is about non-conformity, individuality and rebelliousness.
Set in an intimate space in the much-anticipated Melia Hotel in Bur Dubai, Mansion is a sanctuary within which to unwind, party and socialize. The opening party on 17 May featured a Pacha Recording Party followed by an evening of Hernan Cattaneo’s catchy beats on the following night. “Mansion brings a completely new experience to the Dubai nightlife scene and is part of Dubai’s evolution into one of the world’s party capitals. It is part New York underground club and part Dubai flamboyance but is off the beaten track. From the design concept of the club to the top international DJ’s we’ll be hosting on a weekly basis, Mansion Nightclub will be the perfect venue for the dance music lovers and serious clubbers of Dubai,” said Dan Yantin, Club Manager of Mansion Nightclub. “Dubai moves at a fast pace and we wanted the DJs we host to embody the city’s vibe. Although Mansion Nightclub is rebellious and alternative by nature, we are particular about maintaining the quality of the Mansion clubbing experience. Musical integrity is key to us and we will only be looking at the top DJ’s from the international scene.” Music is thus a key component at Mansion and will focus largely on live House music played by renowned DJs around the world such as Satoshi Tomiie, Hernan Cattaneo and James Zabelia along with Defected in the House, Pacha, Privilege and Es Paradis Nights.
Designed by Milan-based interior designer Marco Mangili, Mansion’s interiors reflect the club’s subversive attitude with a unique feel and design. Created with Dubai’s nightlife in mind, Marco combines a colour scheme of black and gold with four golden VIP cages forming the centre-point of the club. The experience starts in the entry tunnel to the club which is adorned with black mirrors and dim-lit lighting, setting the tone for an exciting late night experience. Once inside, every element is a sensory escapade – from the LED walls overlaid with perforated gold metal that pulse with the rhythm of the club’s music, to the VIP cages and the light effects which pervade the space. The rest of the club features three bars, luxurious black and gold sofas and a state-of-the-art DJ booth. The entire venue has been fitted out with the revolutionary Funktion 1 sound system – the best way to experience the array of international DJs scheduled to hit the decks at the club over the coming months.
To cater to the city’s leading trend-setters, the Mansion has also created an impressive menu of signature cocktails for guests to devour as they are entertained by the crème-de-la-crème of international acts.
Mansion is open on Thursdays and Fridays from 9pm until 3am. For enquiries and bookings please call 050 144 0753/050 144 0953.
