District Lounge, DIFC closes its terrace and invites the community to celebrate staying cool during the summer heat
May 2013 - Located in DIFC's prestigious Gate Village area, District Lounge is a sophisticated lounge bar that caters to Dubai residents who want to start their weekends in style. The lounge is the first of its kind in the city, which embraces the fashionable lavish bar culture with a chic dose of elegance and dance atmosphere. For the first time since the official launch at the end of 2012, District Lounge has now closed its 3,000 sq ft terrace in preparation for the summer months and moved the party indoors in inviting Dubai's community to join in the celebrations for the Summer Time Launch.
Guests filled the venue from the early evening onwards, and were offered a complimentary selection of deliciously authentic cuisine as well as an array of beverages for all their attendees. Live entertainment included talented saxophonist Adam Long and a set from dynamic resident DJ Rash, mixing a premium selection of various genres to create an awesome vibe. The launch undoubtedly impressed attendees and position District Lounge as the ultimate place to party for the summer.
“Everyone dreads Dubai's summer heat” comments Michael Hariz, one of the three managing partners. “With work and social commitments, long gone are the days when people would find themselves escaping the region for 3 or 4 months to cooler climes, and with venues closing down for the summer, there can be a case of ‘summertime blues' which is why we wanted to celebrate the summer and move the party indoors instead.”
Operational Thursdays from 7pm and Fridays from 10pm, the venue is just a stones throw away from some of the cities most popular dining destinations, so guests can expect to find a crème de la crème crowd of professionals and sophisticated socialites mingling in an intimate high-end location. Conceptualized to reflect a mix of sophistication and urban chic, District Lounge is a venue that will allow guests to unwind in the early evenings, yet get in the party mood as the evening draws on with entertainment from internationally renowned DJ's such as Danny Neville, and Sabrina Terence.
“It gives us great pleasure to welcome guests to our stylish District Lounge. Our mission was to create a space where people can leave their stresses at the door and just have fun. We feel that we have successfully achieved that goal, and will continue to do so despite the heat. Over the last few months, we have managed to become known as a hotspot in town, and with our summer launch, we look forward to making it THE place to be this summer, where people can stay cool” concludes Hariz.
To cater to the finer palette of its guests, District Lounge offers an array of appetizing delicacies. Dishes are crafted to create the perfect match with the drinks on offer. Signature dishes from the chef's kitchen include Crispy Fried Calamari, Chicken Satay, Foie Gras, Smoked Salmon and Wasabi Tiger Prawns, to name a few. The venue offers an alternative and sophisticated party venue and takes reservations and private party bookings.
