ENSHAA and Quincy Jones partner to open Q’s Bar and Lounge at Palazzo Versace Dubai
UAE’s leading project developer and hospitality service provider teams up with renowned American musician and producer to open premier jazz bar.
ENSHAA has partnered with the legendary American producer and musician Quincy Jones to open Q’s Bar and Lounge - a jazz bar positioned to attract top performers and aficionados of the genre from across the globe at Palazzo Versace Dubai.
Q’s Bar and Lounge is set to treat guests and residents of the prestigious, luxury fashion hotel to dazzling jazz performances seldom seen outside New York, New Orleans, and London. The bar features a design based on the stylistic input of Quincy Jones, whose entertainment career spans six decades and who has a record 79 Grammy Award nominations and 27 Grammys (the second most of any recording artist in history), including a Grammy Legend Award, under his belt.
The opening of Q’s Bar and Lounge at the Italian-inspired waterfront urban resort reflects Palazzo Versace’s theme and its ambition to offer an experience unrivalled by any other hotel. Q’s has an elegant ambiance, sophisticated and phenomenal acoustics mirroring those of the great jazz venues of the world and serves as the perfect addition to the magnificent 215-room property and world-class dining venues.
Palazzo Versace Dubai will contribute new levels of luxury to a city already replete with high-end fashion and accommodation. Singular touches in the hotel include peerless marble décor, mosaics and vaulted ceilings hand-detailed in gold, while Q’s Bar and Lounge will feature an upscale, Motown-inspired interior, bound to solidify it as the premier jazz venue in the region.
