On stepping off the escalator into the cool, black marble environs of the New Asia Club, Dubai’s trendiest new hotspot, a 3-m ebony Buddha creates a striking first impression. Perched high, it presides over the night as New Asia Club steadily fills with an elegant crowd that knows exactly where to go for a good night.
With an enviable location right at the topmost tip of the already-famous pyramid shaped Raffles Dubai, the New Asia Club is for those who can afford to spend a bit more.
With a small dance floor, plenty of chill out/R&B music and the promise of attracting massive crowds as the clock strikes the wee hours, many people see the New Asia Club as the perfect venue.
There are 110 different cocktails on offer at the New Asia Club - try the Raffles own Dubai Sling for a treat. And don’t miss the spectacular China Moon bar on the first floor, with panoramic views of Dubai’s brightly lit and ever-changing skyline.
The New Asia Club manages to retain an atmosphere of exclusivity by rigorously upholding its door policy of ‘hotel guests and well-dressed couples only’ – worth remembering, before you head out there.
