A unique space for original new music, live performances, and culinary delights…
This year’s Riyadh Sky zone in Riyadh Season has a new destination to add to its list.
Music streaming platform Anghami has launched an innovative new entertainment venue in Riyadh with a totally unique concept. A rooftop with a twist, Anghami Lab is a partnership between Anghami and Addmind, the region’s market leader in hospitality.
Located on the rooftop of Merwas, the 5,000-square-meter space at Boulevard Riyadh City features a lounge, stage, and a fully-fledged recording studio, offering a definite feel-good vibe, live performances, original music, and warm hospitality.
Blending Arabic and Western music, culture, and cuisine
Anghami Lab is equipped with state-of-the-art entertainment technology, comfy lounge spots, and a stage for live music performances from the region’s top talents, overlooking Boulevard Riyadh City’s dancing fountains and surrounded by fantastic views of the Riyadh skyline.
This is a place to enjoy a modern menu filled with Mediterranean flavours and an exotic selection of mocktails and beverages served by world-class bartenders and mixologists, as well as thumping beats from the Lab’s resident and guest DJs who will deliver Arabic Pop and International hits.
It will act as a platform for producers, artists, and music enthusiasts to co-create, bringing the best of talent under one first-of-its-kind creative rooftop. The venue will also host hologram-based shows featuring timeless performances by the region’s top celebrities to add a whole new dimension to the experience.
Offering a high-end atmosphere for the young and young-at-heart, Anghami Lab is made for sky-high nights that feel both exclusive and vibrant.
