Twenty-seven time Grammy winner Jones famously collaborated with Frank Sinatra, Whitney Houston and Michael Jackson.
Legendary musician, television producer and philanthropist Quincy Jones has launched his famed Q’s bar and lounge in Dubai’s Palazzo Versace.
The intimate venue will feature live music including acts by multi-award winning drummer, instrumentalist, composer, producer and broadcaster Ollie Howell who is scheduled to perform throughout February.
Jones said, “Ollie Howell is an unbelievable drummer. So creative, I couldn’t believe it. This kid really is a 360-degree, beautiful young cat that I believe has what it takes to make a life out of music.”
Swedish pop group Dirty Loops will also perform at the lounge on December 9 to 60 limited guests for AED3,000 per person. The package includes a three-course dinner and select beverages.
Q’s comprises an intimate living room space designed with plush furniture and mahogany tables facing a stage. The venue’s menu is a mix of New York and New Orleans culinary culture. It is open from Monday to Friday from 6pm to 2am.
Twenty-seven time Grammy winner Jones famously collaborated with top music icons including Frank Sinatra, Amy Winehouse, Ray Charles, Whitney Houston, Chaka Khan and Michael Jackson.
He has had seven Academy Award nominations, an Emmy, a Tony, and an induction in the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame.
