The exquisite fashion label Billionaire Couture was conceived in 1998 by Flavio Briatore, former Benetton and Renault F1 team boss. Shortly after, Briatore opened the franchise of Billionaire Mansion in Sardinia’s Porto Cervo. The latest branch is located in the extravagant Taj Palace Hotel Dubai and has been planned by Briatore together with Lebanon based Pragma Group and the Indian family Nanda, who own the building. With Dubai being a second home and playground for many celebrities, one shouldn’t be surprised to hear of some big names spending their time there partying.
The design is along the same lines as in the other Billionaire Mansions in Monte Carlo, Sardinia, Istanbul and Bodrum, carrying the colour scheme of a rich gold, smooth cream and warm brown throughout the premises. At Billionaire Grill, the in house restaurant serving Japanese and Italian signature dishes, the Italian menu proposes a wide variety of authentic starters, a selection of traditional and modern Pasta and Risotto, meat and fish main courses and exceptional Neapolitan Pizzas. The award winning contemporary cuisine from world renowned restaurant Sumosan offers mouthwatering delicacies such as “New Style Sashimi”, “Salmon Rice Pizza” and the famous “Black Miso Cod” next to the regular Sushi and Teriyaki dishes. Each night the restaurant showcases a full entertainment program with an extraordinary live dinner show performed by an international cast of professional dancers, singers and acrobats.
Billionaire Mansion also comprises a lounge bar and disco, a room dedicated to Karaoke and the air-conditioned Diamond Khalian terrace with a Shisha bar. The clubs’ fame has turned Billionaire into a prestigious brand and a synonym for glamour, quality and uniqueness. DJ’s from around the world are queuing up to entertain guests in the club. One of them being the famous DJ Antoine, together with Russian rapper Timati, known for their hit “Welcome to St. Tropez”.
Billionaire Mansion is being added to the long list of clubs and restaurants having been equipped with a TW AUDiO system by well-known system integrator PULSE ME of Dubai. 8 x T24N, 10 x M12 (thereof eight painted in white), 14 x M8, 10 x B10, 13 x B15, 6 x B18 and 1 x B30 have been deployed around the mansion. The system is being amplified by 12 x K3DSP and 10 x K2DSP.
“It has been a great honour having been asked to plan, design and install a system this size for Billionaire Mansion and a pleasure to work with Mr. Briatore’s team of consultants”, tells Joe Chidiac of PULSE ME. “From a technical perspective it has been a straight forward installation. In the end it was just a question of tweaking the system to the specific needs of the mansion’s individual rooms. It all works perfectly together and we achieved a balanced sound throughout the club. The system certainly has won the approval of the client.”
