Provocateur is cast in a circular, neon-emblazoned space with black-mirrored columns among sunken lounges areas. A moneyed-set of Dubai locals and in-the-know hotel guests descend on the late dance scene that meanders from supper to dance club from 11pm-3am. Geometric ceiling and slippery cement floors add an element of pizazz to a nightclub locally known as one of the priciest for VIPs.
Not as touristy as Cavalli and not as grown-up as Armani Prive, Provocateur brings the right mix of professionals, hip tourists and locals to the Four Seasons Dubai.
Once inside, expect a fair amount of attitude from staff and don’t even think about ordering a Corona because there’s no beer on the menu for now.
