Solutions Leisure Group will open homegrown nightclub concept, Inner City Zoo at the upcoming Rixos The Walk Hotel, JBR, Dubai, in the summer of 2017.
The venue marks the company’s entry into the UAE’s nightclub scene and the return to the nightlife sector for Solutions Leisure managing director, Paul Evans, and creative director Freek Teusink, who owned and operated nightlife venues in Egypt, including Ministry of Sound and Hed Kandi Beach Bar.
Also opening within the same hotel this year is the group’s second Lock Stock & Barrel and American steakhouse concept, STK, in association with New York-based The ONE Group.
‘STK Beach’ will have a 160-seat capacity.
A second STK will open its doors at The Address Downtown Dubai Hotel, with a 240-seat capacity. It is set to open in September 2017.
The second Lock Stock & Barrel will be two-and-a-half times bigger than the original venue in Barsha Heights, and will retain similar design and music elements.
In addition, it will feature a casual, food-focused concept on the second ﬂoor, with an urban carnival feel.
Solutions Leisure Group currently operates five brands: Q43, Karma Kafé, Asia Asia, Lock, Stock & Barrel and The Atlantic Dubai.
These venues welcome over 100,000 customers every month.
