A recent growth in theatre and entertainment venues in Dubai has seen the launch of The Act (056 811 9900) at the Shangri-La Hotel, which aims to be the world’s highest theatre on 42nd and 43rd floors. It’s a version of venues already popular in Las Vegas and London and boasts international acts flying in from all over the world, as well as a Peruvian dining experience. It’s not really theatre, but a hybrid of cabaret and a nightclub, with circus-like acts appearing throughout the night. After dinner, the tables are cleared and the expensively dressed crowd strut their stuff on the dancefloor.

The Lebanese crowd was delighted to welcome a home import in the form of Music Hall at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray on the Palm, a theatre club with varied acts. And Amsterdam’s Supperclub is now also open at Jumeirah Zabeel Saray – an innovative, cutting edge venue with art, fine dining and entertainment.

Also new on the scene since the end of 2013 is Cafe de la Danse – an entertainment provider with dancers, musicians and theatrical acrobats (04 458 0762). Performers are available for corporate events, or can be seen at various venues around Dubai – see their website for up-to-date information.
