You’re invited to Time Out’s 50th birthday party in Abu Dhabi

Event will be held at super-club Empire on Thursday October 11

Time Out Party, 50 Anniversary

There are some things that Abu Dhabi absolutely nails. Amazing places to eat – we have them by the dozen. Cultural landmarks and an incredible arts scene – you know it. An unbelievable appetite for partying – we’re up there with the best of them. And when it comes to partying, we thought we’d get in on the action.

On Thursday October 11, we’re joining forces with Empire Yas to put on the year’s biggest party. We’re celebrating a landmark anniversary, as the original Time Out was launched in London 50 years ago.

Join us at the Yas island bar, which is suspended over the city’s F1 track at Yas Marina Circuit for an incredible night and of fun, celebration and good tunes.

Music will be courtesy of DJ Shock. The master selecter has toured in the USA and Europe as well as performing here in the UAE, and has performed alongside huge artists such as Pitbull, Shaggy and Fat Boy Slim. In the UAE he’s a familiar face at clubs including Dubai’s Billionaire Mansion, Armani Prive and Zero Gravity as well as at big parties here in the capital.

Shock has been a regular at Empire Yas since the beginning this party season and at our event you can expect to hear a super-cool fusion of R&B, hip-hop, house, nu-disco and more.

From 11pm to 3.30am, the venue will also host its regular Yas Fashion Night, which gives you the chance to feel like a super model by having your own photo shoot in the venue. 

Entry is free, so we hope to see you all there to help us honour Time Out’s 50th birthday.

Our brand was started in 1968 by Tony Elliott, who created the first issue on his kitchen table. The fold-up sheet focused on London’s swinging countercultural scene and told young, hip readers about the gigs, films, theatre shows and other happenings that they needed to know about. Not too dissimilar to what we do now decades later and thousands of kilometres away.

Time Out is now in 108 cities in 39 countries around the world, and we’re very proud and excited to be part of the brilliant world-wide team. As well as the party at Empire we’re having a bit of makeover, so keep an eye on next week’s issue and our on website and social media channels to find out what’s new.

Before then, get October 11 in your diary and come to help us celebrate the last half-century and get ready for the next 50 years.

It’s going to be a brilliant bash and we want our loyal readers to be part of it. See you all there next week.

Free. RSVP here. Thu, Oct 11, 10pm-3.30am. Empire Yas, Yas Hotel Abu Dhabi (050 501 5052).
