As for the show, the performers have a distinct rawness resulting in a full sensory experience. Each night, 12 of 40 choreographed acts will take place to ensure guests are captivated night after night. Some of the shows are charming and flirtatious, while others are full of energy and effervescence. Highlights include the likes of a male strap artist proudly claiming to be one of the top five in the world with past experience in shows like Cirque du Soleil and Franco Dragone, as well as dancers and other specialist acts from across the globe.

SHOWTIME! is currently playing at The Act located in the Fairmont hotel and offers guests a fine dining experience of Peruvian delicacies while watching the drama of a story that takes you behind the scenes of true theatre life.

MusicHall is a brand that started in Beirut and has opened its second location in Dubai on the Palm Jumeirah in the Zabeel Saray hotel. Each Thursday and Friday, guests can watch a series of performers take to the stage throughout the evening and perform a variety of music styles. In one evening you can see up to 10 different live performers playing Middle-Eastern, Russian, Rock, Gipsy fusion, French, American Pop, Salsa, Indian and Persian music. Between the live shows, the curtains close and a DJ plays fun, party-style dance music. The venue is grand with cascading levels that lead to the large stage (the largest in the region). There are lounge and dinner tables set up to accommodate all group sizes. There’s also a bar area if you’d prefer a more casual experience. As for the menu, there’s a diverse selection of cuisine served at tables and finger food served in the lounge areas.
