DD Q's

18 January 2019, Q’s Bar & Lounge, the first-ever jazz bar personally curated by music legend Quincy Jones, located at the opulent Palazzo Versace Dubai, welcomes its next musical prodigy, David Davis. From 22 January to 2 May, this soulful vocal powerhouse and expert showman will electrify the stage.  Jones protégé David’s residency is the perfect prelude for avid jazz fans visiting the city for the Dubai Jazz Festival. Taking place at the Dubai Media City Amphitheatre, just a 20 minutes’ drive from Palazzo Versace, from 20-22 February 2019, the festival will include headline performances by Alicia Keys, Snow Patrol and British jazz-funk band Jamiroquai.

Guests will be drawn into the intimate space of Q’s Bar and Lounge, one of the hottest live music venues in the Middle East, a personal project of the musician and record producer to showcase his favourite up-and-coming acts. “I can’t wait for you all to witness what makes David Davis a “Little Mo’ Betta” and experience his electric energy on stage. Dubai, you don’t want to miss this cat because he’s got the moves AND the grooves” said Quincy Jones.

The heartbeat of Chicago-born David Davis is the comfort of vintage soul meets the infectious joy of pop hooks. Drawing inspiration from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Donny Hathaway and India Arie, Davis has recorded with legendary producers from RedOne (Lady Gaga, Nicki Minaj, Jennifer Lopez, One Direction) to Aaron Sprinkle (One Republic, Eisley). As well as garnering an array of awards and reviews, his songs have featured on hit TV shows, and he has amassed over 500 shows in the last two years. This inspiring artist has also played sold-out clubs and festivals, both as the headline act and as an opening act for the likes of Jon Bellion and John Legend. Davis’ voice and productions have been featured on chart-topping records, as well as across hundreds of stages internationally including The Primetime Emmy’s Governor Ball and Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club.

Topping a great year, Davis has also just launched his debut album; “The Long & Short of It” is now available on all streaming platforms.

Reminiscent of a 16th century Italian Palace, Palazzo Versace Dubai is a Neoclassical masterpiece with subtle traces of Arabian architecture. Featuring a striking entrance, high ceilings, landscaped gardens, and a range of well-crafted Italian furnishings, the hotel is truly symbolic of the Versace lifestyle.

Set in the heart of Jaddaf Waterfront, less than 15 minutes away from Dubai International Airport and eight minutes away from Burj Khalifa and Downtown Dubai, Palazzo Versace Dubai is conveniently located along the shores of the historic Dubai Creek.

Every single piece of furniture and fabric that adorns the hotel’s 215 hotel rooms and suites, and 169 residences, is designed and tailor-made by Versace exclusively for the Palazzo Versace Hotel in Dubai. Each of the hotel’s 8 restaurants and bars is designed to have an al fresco terrace to reflect the heritage of Palazzos, where the internal court was the informal space to meet, dine and enjoy the weather. The three outdoor pools are decorated with mosaic tiles and surrounded by palm trees and flowers. The beautifully landscaped gardens and unobstructed views of the Dubai Creek and skyline make this luxury hotel an ideal venue for weddings and social events in Dubai. UAE developer ENSHAA in conjunction with Versace developed Palazzo Versace Dubai, a hotel and residential project, which opened in November 2015.
