If you think of Atlantis, what comes to your mind first? Well, for us its the Wavehouse. The entertainment destination has been a favourite for the young and the old ever since it opened doors last year. And now, the Wavehouse has completed a year and there are big plans for the big one! Party animals, bowlers, surfers and foodies in Dubai, get ready for the big birthday bash!
Wavehouse at Atlantis, The Palm, is turning one on 30 January and the entertainment destination has some major plans in the pipeline. The wavehouse will kick off celebrations at 8:00 pm with an electric vibe, as the DJ spins some of the best numbers. An hour later, About Last Night will entertain the crowd with their electric performance.
Following them, party animals can groove to the tunes of Greg Stainer and Olly Wood- the British DJ and production duo who shot to fame as under the band name Hollaphonic. Apart from DJs, guests can also enjoy live entertainment by LED fan dancers, aerial hoop artists and balloon art. And, of course what’s first birthday without Wavehouse’s signature surfing performance on the Wave Rider machine! Early birds can get free access to the machine, so get your trunks and head soon!
That’s not it! Guests will also get a complimentary drink, along with delectable bites including tangy ribs, pizzas, colourful sliders, and salads. Entry is free for all, so eats and tables at the party will be on first-come-first-serve basis, so don’t take too long to pick your party wear!
See you there and happy birthday Wavehouse!
For the uninitiated, the Wavehouse redefines Dubai’s definition of ‘entertainment under one roof’. Aimed to be a restaurant, the entertainment destination offers a huge variety of things to do for kids and adults. You can play a game of bowling, peace out at the adults-only bar, or ride the wave at the Wave Rider, while waiting for your meals.
The rustic ‘beach-cum-industrial-gastropub’ setting satiates the cravings of every type of foodie- whether you a light snacker, love luxury meals or like to settle for comfort food. Oh and there’s a live band, DJ’s, and various indoor and outdoor events happening too, so there’s no room for boredom.
What’s In It?
The venue is furnished with a four-lane bowling alley, open to kids and adults. The extra-comfortable couches and 3D projections make this part of the venue one of the most sought after. Bowling is priced at AED 360 per hour (maximum 6 guests) or AED 60 per person per game (walk in only). So, slip into those non-skid socks (you get them for an extra AED 15) and test your bowling skills!
What’s an entertainment zone without a play area for kids! The soft play area has child-friendly slides, padded mazes and climbing frames.
Kids who are over one meter tall can access the area. The Arcade games, meant for kids and adults spans two floors and features more than 50 games. And trust us, you are not too old for these. You can play the game using a recharge card and also win prizes.
If you like to go body boarding, knee boarding, or surfing, this one’s for you. The Wave Rider is designed to produce waves, pumping in over 7 tonnes of water per second. Pay up a fee of AED 100 and ride the wave or simply watch from the sunny terrace.
The wave rider is free for Aquaventure guests and is open from 10:00 am – 6:00 pm.
And when you are super busy enjoying the fun offerings, don’t forget to grab a bite at their yummylicious restaurant. Choose from healthy bites to sharing platters and delicious snacks for when you’re only feeling a bit peckish. The restaurant has a gourmet gastro menu which serves everything from pizzas to burgers, sandwiches, milkshakes and more. Plus, there’s something for the comfort food lovers and the weight watchers too.
