More than a thousand Members and guests donned elegant gowns and suave tuxedos at Capital Club Dubai’s “License to Party” 8th Anniversary event on April 21st. It was fitting that the date coincided with HM Queen Elizabeth II’s 90th birthday, as Members had been invited to attend “on Her Majesty’s Secret Service” – James Bond style. The night featured an array of exciting live entertainment, including a snake charmer, martini glass girl, Russian dancers, a magician and live music, as well as delectable buffets, creative beverages and a best-dressed competition, bringing the spirit of the world’s most famous secret agent to the UAE in full force.
Proudly supported by Title Sponsors Aston Martin and Elegant Resorts, the prestigious DIFC venue was decorated to reflect scenes from renowned Bond films, featuring gold illumination in the Members Bar for ‘Goldfinger’, blue lighting and ice sculptures in the Al Hamra dining room for ‘From Russia with Love’, and a diamond room with special lighting for ‘Diamonds Are Forever’. An Aston Martin Vulcan – a track-only supercar that you could imagine Mr. Bond driving on the weekends – was parked outside the venue, providing a spectacular photo opportunity upon arrival, with red carpet leading Members inside the Club through a huge, gun-shaped tunnel. A Shirley Bassey style vocalist also sang a very special happy birthday to the Club, followed by a raffle draw which saw exciting prizes given away including an all-inclusive trip to Sri Lanka, a weekend in a supercar, and a luxury hotel stay in Paris.
The event was further generously supported by: The Peninsula Paris, Emirates Airlines, AMAN Resorts, Vispring, Palazzon Versace, Stratta 1836, Turkish Village, Grey Goose, CAREEM and Armada.
The bash continued into the early hours of Friday morning, and Members have been calling it the best Capital Club Anniversary Party to-date. Indeed, it was a great way to celebrate 8 years of success for the exclusive private members Club, and the bar has been set high for next year’s event!
