Saturday, March 12 from 11pm
GQ Bar, JW Marriot Marquis, Dubai

An intimate underground house journey in a cool venue… but not for the faint-hearted. The place has a pumping sound system and with residents like Aidin Karami doing his thing most weeks, it’s one of those reliably good house nights! Long may it continue.

EDEN Beach Club, The Rixos, The Palm, 99573 Dubai, United Arab Emirates

From underground classics like Texi, Get Wild and Don’t Say A Word, to scoring international chart toppers, like PATT (Party All The Time) and The One, Sharam’s musical credits are as dynamic as his DJ sets. His production collaborations include artists such as Kid Cudi, Shakira, Patsy Cline, Chris Martin and Daniel Bedingfield just to name a few. He seamlessly navigates between hypnotic underground sets rooted in his rich history of house and techno, while entertaining younger dance enthusiasts of today with laser like focus and dedication to quality. His motto remains ‘entertain while educate’. His sound is Ibiza in Vegas. His style is limitless.
During the Miami conference Sharam rejoined his old buddy Dubfire as the legendary duo “Deep Dish” and performed their first show in over 8 years setting the industry abuzz once again with their set as well as their new single “Quincy”.

Be sure to arrive early to catch some sunshine and indulge in the luxury of the beach club on your very own sunbed or private beach bungalow, or keep yourself cool with a cocktail at the swim-up bar.

Create new memories over lunch with friends at the restaurant overlooking the pristine waters of the Palm Jumeirah. As the sun goes down and Day turns to Night, EDEN will evolve into a party with DJs Kaytek & Trix heating things up before the big guns take over the decks.

Opening hours: 10am – Midnight. EDEN’s door policy applies.

Chef Masterclasses

Electrolux Chef’s Theatre at Taste of Dubai

Nathan Outlaw not only has one of the best names in the British dining scene, he also has one of the most solid reputations. The seafood expert has earned two Michelin stars across his family of restaurants, where he has put his experience of working alongside the likes of Rick Stein and Gary Rhodes to good use. This weekend (March 10-12) is his first visit to Taste of Dubai, but he is looking forward to showing off his skills.

“I have done Taste of London before and I know the ‘Taste’ team, so I know what I’ve let myself in for!” he says. “I am actually really excited to be coming over, Dubai is an impressive city and I’m excited to look around and get to know it a bit more. I’ve eaten in some impressive restaurants there, like Coya and Jean-Georges Kitchen, so I know it’s a strong dining scene.”

Nathan will be making regular appearances throughout the weekend, notably in the Chef’s Theatre, where he will be serving up some of his fish-based expertise. He’ll also be taking part in the Cooking Challenge, where members of the public can see if they can follow the instruction of a leading chef and serve up a gourmet meal of their own.

“The Chef’s Theatre will mainly be about preparing fish, which is a crucial component of any seafood dish, and then cooking a couple of simple dishes. For the challenge, I think I’ll be doing scallops poached in coconut milk, which is typical of the kind of food I cook – things that I like to eat myself. It is taken from my latest cookbook, too, which is very much about creating easy-to-follow dishes at home.”

One thing is for sure, though, it won’t be his last visit to Dubai – and he’s not ruling out the possibility his name might appear above a restaurant in the near future. “I have looked at a couple of opportunities already and visited quite a few kitchens to see what ingredients they use, where they source their fish. I can’t believe the quality of the seafood they’re able to get hold of.”
