ExpoBar is Colombia’s most important nighttime entertainment event with more than 3.000 attendees including representatives of the industry, staff, authorities and sponsors creating a forum where key issues are discussed and possible solutions are provided relating to Colombia's nightlife industry. The chosen venue for said events is Theatron Bogotá, who recently became a Gold Member of the International Nightlife Association. As you may know, the INA holds an annual international congress and awards ceremony and has decided to celebrate this year’s edition once again jointly with Asobares and the 6th edition of the ExpoBar Fair. During the evening of November 13th , the International Nightlife Association will host the 5th Golden Moon Awards where among other awards, the list of “The World’s 100 Best Clubs 2019” will be released. The World's Best Club position is currently occupied by Hï Ibiza. Asobares' president, Mr. Camilo Ospina Guzmán stated today, "We are very happy that the most important nightlife fair in Colombia comes together again with the most important nightlife congress in the world to hold a big event that will have a notable influence on nightlife all over the world". According to Mr. Joaquim Boadas de Quintana, Secretary General of the International Nightlife Association, "We are proud to hold our annual event together once more with ExpoBAR, hosted by our member association in Colombia, Asobares. I would also like to make an appeal to the leading nightlife businesses in the world to take part in these events, since they will mark a trend towards the future of our sector at a worldwide level".
Soho Garden will be a mix of dining, poolside and nightlife experiences, and it opens this December…
There’s no shortage of new openings in Dubai. From restaurants to beach clubs to bars, we’re spoiled for choice when it comes to checking out new spots in Dubai. In fact, here are 20 we’re still waiting on opening before the year is over.
But a new concept has just been announced that combines clubs, pubs, restaurants and more. It’s called Soho Garden, and it will be ‘a diverse mix of dining, pool lounging and nightlife experiences in an idyllic setting in Dubai’, according to its Instagram page.
The 14,000 square metre complex, which will house Drai’s Las Vegas (you can read more on that here) as well as several other outlets, will be located at Meydan near Nad Al Sheba (about 15 minutes from Downtown).
The first phase of the project, which will open this December, will include a daytime pool area and four bars with a seating capacity of 800 people. The closely positioned bars (Glasshouse Bar, Bellini Bar, Tiki Bar and Negroni Bar) will allow guests to move freely between them, and they will all have a distinct look and feel.
When fully operational, which is expected to be some time in 2018, Soho Garden will also feature a 10,000 capacity concert stage, nightclubs, pools and several other restaurants and bars.
Soho Garden is described by the team behind it as ‘a unique mix of eclectic luxury, with laidback chic, creating a buzzing urban scene inspired by the international cultural melting pots of London and New York,’ [and Dubai?]. Also, it’s expected to throw a larger-than-life New Year’s bash this year, with a headliner announcement expected soon.
Although we’re not sure who the New Year’s Eve act will be, we’re already seeing other acts announced, with DJ Steve Lawler, Sash, Art Department and Erik Hagleton all promoting that they’ll be playing gigs at the venue next year.
