Music legend Quincy Jones opens first outlet in Dubai

DUBAI, November 20, 2016

Dubai’s nightlife has been set alight with the opening of the legendary Quicy Jone's first ever bar, Q’s, at Palazzo Versace Dubai.

With a career spanning six decades and collaborations with legendary music icons including Frank Sinatra, Amy Winehouse, Ray Charles, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan and most famously, Michael Jackson, the 27 Grammy winner and seven time Academy Award nominee is arguably the most influential man in the business.  

Featuring an intimate living room space decked out with plush furniture and mahogany tables facing the vibrant stage, Q's is a destination for high-quality comfort food stirred by New York and New Orleans culinary culture and a wide selection of fine and rare beverages in the FROW to the finest music acts complemented by unmatched acoustics.

The opening night kicked off with performances by award-winning drummer Ollie Howell and pop-fusion super group, Dirty Loops.

Howell will be the official artist in residence and is scheduled to perform through February.

"Ollie Howell is an unbelievable drummer. So creative, I couldn’t believe it. This kid really is a 360-degree, beautiful young cat that I believe has what it takes to make a life out of music,” said Jones in a press statement.

Sweden's Dirty Loops will also be performing again on December 9 to 60 guests for Dh3,000 ($816.5) per person, including a three-course dinner and select beverages at Enigma restaurant and bar drinks and petit fours at Q’s.

Sandra Tikal, general manager of Palazzo Versace Dubai, added: “There are very few who have made a lasting impression on the music scene as Quincy Jones. We are truly honoured that he has chosen Palazzo Versace Dubai to make history with the first ever Q’s Bar.”

Located in Palazzo Versace Dubai’s West Wing, Q’s is open from Monday to Friday 6pm to 2am. - TradeArabia News Service
