Mad hatters at Dubai World Cup

Mad hatters at Dubai World Cup

A vinyl collection, a cone of chips and a Tikki Puka Puka cocktail were the main attraction at this year’s Dubai World Cup. With the horse racing in full swing on the track, it is the ladies of Crowne Plaza Dubai that had people speculating on the greens with their quirky hats.

The three hats represent three of the hotel’s award winning outlets:

Harvesters: Harvesters, a quintessential British Pub known for its generous hearty food was represented by chunky chips wrapped in traditional newspaper.

Zinc : One of the city’s original nightclubs had vinyls and funky disco balls embodying the passion for music and the legendary DJ’s that have entertained over 1 million clubbers to date at Zinc. An icon in the clubbing world.

Trader Vic’s Crowne Plaza Dubai: Trader Vic’s Crowne Plaza Dubai is home to the world famous Tiki Puka Puka. The traditional island style drink is the perfect icing on the cake.


Crowne Plaza Dubai is a five star hotel located on Sheikh Zayed Road in the heart of Dubai. General Manager, James Young commented “We decided to get into the spirit of Dubai World Cup by being creative with our hats. The social nature of the event mirrors the electric environment of the outlets so it was the perfect fit.”

The three had a glorious day at the world’s richest horse race, and managed to turn many heads while doing it.
