El Chiringuito Dubai shuts down

The announcement was made on the brand’s Instagram page


Weeks before the peak tourist season begins, one of the city’s most popular beach clubs, El Chiringuito, has announced that it is shutting down with immediate effect.

The news may come as a surprise to patrons given there were posts on its Instagram page advertising deals on cabanas and pool access as recently as two days ago

Located at Dubai’s Rixos The Palm, the venue was reputed for its weekly NOMAD parties that took place every Friday.

The closure will mean Chiringuito loses out on the droves of tourists and residents who head out to Dubai’s beach clubs during the cooler months from October to March.


However, the city is due to see two new beach club openings by 2019. The first is Cove Beach in Caesar’s Palace and the other is Nammos, the Mykonos beach club brand that is a permanent fixture for some of the world’s biggest celebrities.

It’s not entirely the end of the road for Chiringuito though. The post adds, “ El Chiringuito Ibiza will be seeing you all sometime soon.” The cryptic message suggests that the beach club might open up in another venue in Dubai.

We’ll make sure you’re the first to know about it.
