JOUR­NEY TIME (FROM TECOM): 35 min­utes, but it feels like for­ever get­ting to that end of the Palm. There is a boat ser­vice that leaves from Al Su­fouh beach as well. GET­TING IN IF NOT ON GUESTLIST/ VIP/ TA­BLE: No is­sue get­ting in, staff were friendly enough but are used to most peo­ple hav­ing ta­bles. So if you’re just com­ing in on your own be ready for some con­fused looks. DRINK PRICES: Beer Dhs55, Gin & Tonic Dhs38, Shisha Dhs150. NUM­BER OF BARS: 2 large bars ei­ther side of the DJ booth. BAR QUEUES: Hardly any on the night, but it coped well with their big Steve Aoki night. CLIEN­TELLE: A bit of a mix, mostly an older monied crowd and given their re­cent line ups quite a few mu­si­cally ed­u­cated peeps. COST OF SUN­LOUNGER/DAY BED: Dhs200 in­clud­ing wel­come drink, ta­bles have a min­i­mum spend Dhs8,000- 20,000. FOOD: The restau­rant serves a good se­lec­tion of food from sal­ads to main cour­ses all of which looked great. MU­SIC/ DJS: They’ve got a very com­pet­i­tive line up, with up- and­com­ers ( Laura Jones) along­side es­tab­lished big hit­ters ( Above and Be­yond). Top notch res­i­dents in Kaytek and Sasa Men­done as well make it a strong con­tender. EN­TRY COST: Most events are free, but they’ve started charg­ing Dhs200 for big­ger events like Dubfi re and Booka Shade. OPEN­ING HOURS: 10am till Mid­night. EASE OF GET­TING A TAXI AF­TER: Straight into a wait­ing taxi when we de­cided to leave but I can imag­ine on a busier night you might have a bit more of a wait. COM­ING UP: Sci- Tec over­lord Dubfi re is confi rmed for March 20, Groove Ar­mada on March 27 and Steve Bug on May 15.
