QBARA & THE QODE KICK OFF the SOCIAL SEASON in STYLE!
Dubai’s VIPs Celebrate the New A/W Social Season and The Qode’s 5th Anniversary
Dubai, UAE; Last night’s event at Qbara, co-hosted by The Qode, was like an uber-glamorous version of a back- to- school party. As the new season commenced, Qbara, along with The Qode, threw a glittering party to welcome back Dubai’s most familiar faces, their clients and members of the media after the long summer hiatus. There was a real buzz in the air as people recounted stories of their summer holidays and gathered together to raise a glass to The Qode’s 5th anniversary.
Qbara, in partnership with A&E, ensured that their guests’ glasses were filled with only the best bubbly care of Volli as well as specially crafted Ketel One cocktails including the Q Fizz; homemade z’atar- infused Tanqueray gin with lime and thyme syrup, finished with refreshing, sparkling bubbles. For the vodka aficionados there was a Persian Mohito; homemade citrus vodka pressed with fresh mint and Persian rose, completed with pink grapefruit saif. Mocktail devotees were delighted with the Karkadeh; a deep red hibiscus tisane spiced with clove and cinnamon and sweetened with honey.
The dual celebration, held on September 12th, was lit up with the city’s glam pack to welcome in the new social season at one of Dubai’s most stunning venues. The gathered VIPs relished bite- sized versions of Qbara’s sumptuous menu including their signature canapés, which were both plentiful, varied and highly appreciated, judging by the number of times generous platters had to be replaced. All were passionately crafted by the phenomenally talented Group Director of Culinary, Emiliano Bernasconi, supported by his extraordinary team of chefs weaving their spells in the kitchen.
Music was provided by Qbara’s resident DJ Ivan, together with Mozaik Trio, one of the city’s most exciting live bands with their unique mix of oriental, Cuban and Latin sounds. Guests also thoroughly enjoyed the fishfayce photo booth, which created animated flipbooks for people to take home with them.
The Qode’s Managing Partners have made their agency’s anniversary parties one of the Dubai party calendar staples, hosted at Dubai’s hottest venues. “We are thrilled to be celebrating our 5-year anniversary at one of Dubai’s most magnificent home grown concepts, Qbara.” said Ayman Fakoussa, co-founder at The Qode. “It has been an immensely memorable 5 years, and what better way to thank our loyal friends and supporters than with a glittering party at the amazing Qbara to celebrate this exciting milestone!” added Dipesh Depala, The Qode co-founder.
"We are delighted to welcome our guests back to Dubai just in time for the new season and what better way to do that than by throwing a season opening party.
