Partner content: Head to Raffles The Palm Dubai to check out a night of funky jazz and signature mixed drinks
By Time Out EditorsOctober 31, 2021
Love live music? Big fan of the city’s jazz lounges? Boy, have we got the night out for you.
Taking place at Dubai’s brand-new Raffles The Palm Dubai on Thursday November 4, Time Out Dubai has teamed up with the hotel’s sophisticated jazz lounge, Sola, to host “That Jazz Night”.
A rollicking night out is in store, with a free drink for everyone on arrival and funky jazz from courtesy of Carrie Gibson and her Nuvo Soul band, fusing velvety vocals with eclectic improvisation.
Now open at Raffles The Palm Dubai and reminiscent of established New York’s most glamorous jazz haunts, Sola serves up live music from Tuesday to Saturday, with performances ranging from gypsy jazz to soul, funk and Latin beats.
Tuesdays are all about soul, jazz and Motown, while Wednesdays are for gypsy jazz, Fridays for Latin and Saturdays see live entertainers turn up with a blues-ier set.
But on Thursdays, it’s all about the funky. A sub-genre of jazz characterised by a strong back beat (or groove), electrified sounds and the use of analog synthesizers, you’ll be hard-pressed not to shimmy in your seat as the band strikes up.
And on Thursday November 4, we’ve got even more reason to check Sola out.
For Dhs285 per person, you’ll get two bold-flavoured drinks from the lounge’s signature crafted beverage menu, along with two dishes from a great selection of Asian and Mediterranean sharing food specialties.
Whether you’re a jazz aficionado or just looking for your next great date night idea – look no further.
