DSB’s  new spots & venues feature today is the newest and sporty SPiN Club recently opened at Wafi Dubai.

SPiN Club is the preeminent lifestyle group of Ping-Pong social clubs combining the fun of Ping-Pong with music, dancing, art, drinking and dining, and it is now here in Dubai. SPiN is a ping pong social club, co-founded by Hollywood star Susan Sarandon.

Equipped with 11 ping pong tables, club goers were encouraged to skip the dance floor and have a go with the more competitive side of the club. Play ping-pong!

Co-founder Rami Alyamour has this to say about the club: “It’s the perfect answer to nightclub fatigue in Dubai, where the only available activity isn’t just milling around and looking at each other.”

Katsuya by Starck to open soon in Dubai

Guess what’s buzzing around the neighborhood. An impeccable gastronomic joint to grace and join the increasing numbers of awesome bite club in the UAE is the acclaimed sushi restaurant, Katsuya by Philippe Starck.

 

In case y’all wondering what Katsuya is, Katsuya represents the culinary wizardry of one of the best sushi masters, Chef Uechi. Uechi’s sushi restaurants have long been among the LA and Hollywood’s top-rated and we just can’t wait for the opening of the anticipated sushi restaurant. We are also loving the fine touches of design impresario, Philippe Starck and we wonder if we’ll be seeing the same glamorous design from Katsuya’s first restaurants in the US.

Known for its Japanese artsy ambience and a feel of simplicity and elegance, “Katsuya” will surely tickle Dubai food lover’s taste buds and curiosity. M.H. Alshaya Co. in partnership with SBE are the responsible for the introduction the brand to the region, on which two restaurants will be opening soon here in Dubai. We will keep you all updated as soon as we have the right location of Katsuya. So stay tuned!

The Dazzling Carey Mulligan

 

So much for the excitement of the upcoming remake of the classic movie and novel written by Fitzgerald “The Great Gatsby” that we can’t get much satisfaction of simply reviewing our literary books and novels.

The Great Gatsby which is soon to grace the cinemas across the UAE, is truly giving us the reason to visit our local theatres.

We love Leonardo De Caprio and Tobey Maguire – the other two POV characters in the film, but what intrigues us the most is the ever sultry Daisy (POV) character played by Carey Mulligan.

We caught her latest magazine interview and cover on Vogue, and we are just amazed on how similarly she looked like Mia Farrow, who played the same character as Daisy in 1974. She’s got a very beautiful fragile look that melts any man’s heart. Check some of her Vogue photos.

And oh yeah, we can’t wait to see the movie! Check out your latest Vogue magazine athttp://www.vogue.com
