The Cavalli Club has to be one of the trendiest places on the Dubai night life scene. Tucked away at the back of The Fairmont, it’s all glitz and glam, as one would expect. There’s a red carpet entrance and velvet walls. With large crystal chandeliers suspended and plush leopard print seating it’s all very hip. The dress code is cocktail dresses and high heels and smart evening wear for the gents.
Dubai is renowned for Sunday Brunch however if you are a sun worshipper this can prove difficult. So when we heard that Cavalli Club do a Sunday Midnight Brunch with cabaret this sounded perfect as it wouldn’t interfere in our sun time. It starts at around 8:30 and finishes around midnight. Tables are set beautifully with rather funky goblets and plates.
The Sunday Midnight Brunch sees great little performances interspersed between the three courses and bottomless drinks.
The impressive pyramid sharing starter arrived with lots of small spoons with a great variety of small bites. The options seemed endless, with capreese salads, to sushi, nachos, and calamari. Each mouthful was delicious and packed full of flavour.
There was a choice of main courses but they seemed to lack lustre after the phenomenal starters. The saffron risotto, beef and gnocci were all fairly non descript.
The platter of desserts also couldn’t quite live up to expectation after the starters. We could really have just called it a day after the starters.
However the overall experience at Cavalli Club was a really memorable one. The cabaret performances were cheeky, energetic and fun. It’s all really tasteful, and sophisticated. The short performances are perfectly timed after the starters arrive, and span the evening. With lots of singing, dancing and acrobatics, it’s a fantastic show.
At midnight all the tables are moved away, turning Cavalli Club back into a nightclub, with a resident DJ. Cavalli Club is definitely worth a visit for a drink, and a memorable celebration in Dubai.
