Art Bar Flashback by #Absolutists Event, Media City, Dubai

Location? Media One Hotel, 40th floor, overlooking all angles of Media City. The vast open plan space was perfect with its urban style exposed circuits and concrete floor giving a nod to every inner city.

Who's Who? Dubai's Usual Suspects of young and trendy stylish Movers and Shakers mixed with the right amount of suits n' ties and blue chip folk to make it interesting.

What ? Art Bar Flashback by #Absolutists featuring pop-Art pieces by Artist Khaled Sharan. Andy Warhol and Co. lookalikes flirted among the crowd with a live pop performance followed with flash backs to Andy W. recording on his vintage Super 8mm cam  in his studio heydays. Pop-up cocktail bars with especially formulated cocktails for the night. A secret dark room of LED blinking lights in acrylic legs (see the pic for a visual) and scattered pop art pieces and graffiti murals throughout. Music sent you back to Madonna's like a Virgin, mixed in with Salt n'Pepper Push it took you back in time.

Dress Code: Duh! Its Art Flashback so anything from the 90's or 80's was King! Velvet was there in different shapes and forms, pop art colour on simple dresses and converse style. Plaid shirts, the vibe was grunge meets Courtney Love when she discovered makeup and Versace! Lol! Bowler and baseball hats, lots of distressed denim, worn in leather for jackets, bags, pants and more! My translation meant a perfect time for my Vintage graphic top complete with shoulder pads from a US Vintage shop, worn over some black leggings and a near new Biker jacket and there you have it! Brash 80's gold jewelry not included ;-) #POW!

 CAUTION!! YOU ARE ENTERING A FLASHBACK ZONE!
