April is upon us, bringing with it the arrival of one of the most sought after events on the year’s social calendar: the 8th anniversary of Capital Club Dubai on the 21st of this month. The occasion is proudly supported by Aston Martin and Elegant Resorts, and will be a James Bond themed affair, with the venue decorated to recreate moments from famous Bond films like Goldfinger and Diamonds Are Forever.
Capital Club, Dubai’s Premier Private City Club and member of the ENSHAA group of companies, will be pulling out all the stops as it gets ready for its grand “License to Party” event. Starting from the ground floor all the way up to the roof terrace, with its stunning views of the Burj Khalifa and DIFC, Capital Club will be decorated to represent scenes from some of Bond’s iconic adventures. As always, the Club and its supporters have amazing raffle prizes, and party-goers are invited to “dress to kill” in suave tuxedos and glamorous gowns.
More than a thousand Members and their guests are expected to enjoy a magnificent evening of wonderful food, drinks and entertainment until the early hours. From the moment they arrive, attendees will be swept up in a wave of James Bond charm, starting with a red carpet welcome complete with a beautiful Bond car sponsored by Aston Martin.
A fabulous, gun-shaped tunnel will lead them into the ground floor of the Club, from where they can begin to explore the adjoining rooms tinged with atmospheric lighting. There will be gold illumination in the Members Bar for Goldfinger, blue lighting and ice sculptures in Al Hamra dining room for ‘From Russia with Love’, a diamond room with special lighting for ‘Diamonds are Forever’, and a huge stage in the middle of the Club where the band will play.
The live entertainment portion of the evening will kick off at 8pm, with a band performing the very best in Bond themed music. In addition, there will be a range of dashing and daring entertainment acts, including: a Snake Charmer, a Martini Glass Girl, Russian Dancers and a Magician. Finally, at midnight, there will be a fabulous cake cutting ceremony with a very special “Shirley Bassey” style vocalist singing happy birthday to the Club!
The food and beverage available will be plentiful and decadent, and party-goers will be spoilt for choice. Popping up across the Club on the night will be a special selection of some of the best local food vendors offering up huge variety of cuisines, from oysters to Arabic, all the way to a host of delectable BBQ dishes.
The Club will also be active on social media, utilising the suitably Bond themed hashtag: #CCDturns008.
Christian Horvath, General Manager of Capital Club Dubai, said: “The evening will be a knock-out event, with amazing prizes, entertainment, live music, and fantastic food and beverage stations throughout the Club. In keeping with the mystery and intrigue we’ve come to associate with James Bond, the evening will also include top secret surprise acts, which guests certainly won’t want to miss.”
Director of Membership for the Capital Club Dubai, Lauren Ruttle, added: “Of all the great events inside and outside of the Club that I’ve been lucky enough to attend, the Capital Club Anniversary Party is by far (and I promise, without bias) the most exciting. With pop up entertainment – there is never a dull moment. The only things that you won’t be able to find on the night are empty glasses or lack of food choices – every corner of the Club will be occupied by different beverage options and cuisines from James Bond’s famous movie destinations.
