‘Unplugged’ at the Rooftop every Thursday
One&Only Royal Mirage is proud to partner with music management company ‘The Fridge’ to present ‘Unplugged at the Rooftop’, a new series of weekly live music performances to complement the return of balmy evenings under a starlit sky.
Every Thursday the celebrated band ‘Dahab’, will bring a brand new feel to the ambience of what has become known as one of Dubai’s most stylish night spots, described as ‘indulgently Arabesque with a groovy twist’. As friends sink into plush cushions by candlelight and soak up the striking views across Palm Island Bay, ‘Unplugged at the Rooftop’ on Thursday nights will offer an alternative way to unwind from a hectic week and enjoy the start of the weekend.
‘Dahab’, an acoustic five piece band created by Sharif Maghraby (composition, lead and rhythm guitars, vocals), Majed Fassi (composition, lead and rhythm guitars, vocals) and Adham Sharkawy (percussion) in 2004, define their music as ‘acoustic ethnic rock with a 70’s influence’. The band took their name from a small Bedouin village in Sinai about 100km north of Sharm El Sheikh, a place which gave them a feeling of harmony, peace and being at one with nature, which was to provide the ultimate inspiration for most of their music composed to date.
On Fridays the resort’s traditional Arabic quartet, appreciated for their performances in the Arabian Courtyard, will play at the Rooftop, whilst on the remaining evenings the Resident DJ will underline the unique outdoor feel of the venue with Arabesque ‘Beirut meets Istanbul’ chill-out lounge music.
The Rooftop Terrace, located at the Arabian Court of One&Only Royal Mirage, is open daily from 5pm. Performances on Thursdays and Fridays begin at 9pm. For reservations, please call 04 399 99 99.
