When I first googled the location, I was a bit hesitant to go check it out, just cause we’re a bunch of lazy people who never want to explore anything beyond a 10AED taxi right, haha. Capitol Hotel? Satwa? Hmm! :/
After dinner at Al Muna, we braved it and decided, let’s go. It’s the launch, and we’re out to party. Found Capitol hotel, and got our way in 🙂
At 11pm the place was packed. It’s smaller than its sister branch in the marina, and felt a little like a really cool underground club you take your mates to have a proper night out 🙂 2 hours of a few drinks, a few too many jagermeisters and a good dance out to great 80s 90s music, to end the night 😀
Again, G missed it, aww! Gotta take you to at least one of the Societe’s next time 😛
Great alternative to those who stay in downtown or Jumeirah, as you definitely won’t get stuck in the “marina traffic” getting there.
To Eric the bartender, you’re the man. Thanks for being attentive and taking care of us. I think I was a bit too aggressive with the shots, my apologies. You were a great sport though, cheers 🙂
And the official blurp from PR –
Societe launches second venue in Jumeirah
Societe Jumeirah to officially open its doors on 27th November with a weekend launch party
Societe has established itself as the bedrock of old school music in Dubai, and following the success of its flagship club in Dubai Marina, is opening a second venue this November. To celebrate, Societe Jumeirah is having a weekend launch party, with doors opening on Thursday 27th November at 10pm sharp.
The new venue, located at the Capitol Hotel, is of course adopting Societe’s signature interior of chesterfield couches and retro chic. The 300m2 club is also housed over two floors, enabling it to cater for 350 people.
Bringing the same nostalgic flavour of music with eclectic tunes from the 80s, 90s and 00s, the new retro-hotspot enables Societe to host more leading artists from around the globe. Another exciting addition is the opening times, with Societe Jumeirah rocking out seven days a week – a rarity in Dubai.
The brand’s second venture is a natural step for owner Gary Holliday, who explained: “Societe has taken Dubai by storm and it has been a great journey so far. The new venue allows us to cater to downtown Dubai and Jumeirah – something many of our regular clientele have been asking for. Now we can have twice the fun.”
Societe Jumeirah is open from 10pm to 3am seven days a week with no cover charge. For table bookings please call 052 728 5126.
