The Act Dubai is officially open, a nightspot renowned for theatre, party and debauchery – sounds like our kind of scene. See who went to the grand opening at Shangri-La Hotel last night…

Brought to our shores by Simon Hammerstein, the brainchild behind cabaret club The Box, which has zip codes in both London and New York. The Act Dubai follows in the successful footsteps of the Las Vegas venue that flung open their doors late last year.

Simon’s A-list pals, actor Jude Law and supermodel Jodie Kidd, both showed up to the exclusive event along with the region’s elite, who certainly did not disappoint in the style stakes.

Want to know who wore what on the red carpet? See our party snaps below…
