Mantis will open its doors this November at Dubai International Financial Centre (DIFC).
Situated on podium level in Emirates Financial Towers, Mantis will boast a 7-star experience and the 8,500sqft venue will feature state-of-the-art lighting, sound, audio, and digital technology to create a seamless, immersive, and authentic clubbing experience.
The triangular experience of seating and viewing will provide a 360-degree view of the venue at any time.
On arrival, the experience starts with a life-size Mantis designed by the renowned Italian artist, Tomaso Albertini, assembled to breathe excitement from the door. The interior is designed by a French design team, Exception, keeping in mind the haut monde of Dubai. Mantis explores the senses further with a mirrored corridor from floor to the roof. Guests will also have the opportunity to take a break and unwind in the Immersive room, found in the centre of the club where shots of coffee, Kopi Lowak will be served fresh from Bali.
Danny Planter, Owner of D&T Group, the parent company of Mantis, said: “Our aim is to create a truly VIP experience which will match offerings that can be found in some of the clubbing hotspots around the world, such as Las Vegas, Ibiza, and Los Angeles. We’re confident that we’ve created a one-of-a-kind concept in the region, which will continue to deliver time and time again on entertainment, innovation and experience.
The technology found inside the club will be second-to-none. With sound systems from the industry leading D&B Audiotechnik, state of the art LED Screens from VOD Visual, Lighting systems from MA Lighting, Clay Paky and Lumibright, Mantis is positioning itself to be a very special, dynamic and unique space. During the construction stage, we carefully selected our manufacturing partners from all over the globe to help us showcase a premium concept with award winning state-of-the-art systems, the first to ever be seen in a UAE entertainment venue. Mantis is a venue like no other.”
