Emirati duo Buthaina Al Mazrui and Alamira Noor Bani Hashim created The Dinner Club 57 in November 2012 and brought something new and exciting to the city. Secrecy sets the tone and the location, theme, guests and menu all remain a surprise until just a few days before the event. A plus one is out of the question in these intimate gatherings set in obscure and interesting venues, from Kubrick-esque empty swimming pools, to an immersion in The Secret Garden, adopting the roll as Alice in a wonderland of pretty ornaments, twinkling candles and sumptuous flowers arrangements with vintage radio crooning soft 1920s jazz.

Location: Never the same (invitation only event)
