Time Out Bahrain staff
Bushido 3rd Birthday It’s been a long time coming after the Japanese favourite missed its second anniversary last year due to the troubles.
So now, having turned three in April, Bushido has organised the kind of birthday bash only it knows how to throw.
General manager Nicolas Budzynski said: “We want everyone in Bahrain to come and celebrate with us, this is always a celebration to see that one more year has passed.
“A lot has been achieved in three years, not always easily, but we are happy to see that growth of the Bushido spirit in Bahrain”.
Providing the tunes on the night will be beatmasters from Bushido’s sister properties DJ Ravin of Buddha-Bar Paris and Carlos Campos of Barrio Latino, Paris, who are both familiar faces on the island.
Expect a mix of world and Latino vibes in a night full of entertainment and surprises.
And it’s another return visit for the Secret Garden Show from Bulgaria whose dances and costumes take the party to another level.
They’ll be joined by Australian singer Simonne Cooper who regularly performs at some of Ibiza’s top live music venues including Blue Marlin and Villa Mercedes.
House DJ Dara Singh said: “We’re part of the Buddha-Bar network and, for our anniversary, we’re going back to our roots. Buddha-Bar’s success story started 14 years ago now and we hope to see the same enthusiasm around Bushido after a decade. We have done a lot in Bahrain over the last three years with events, new concepts, parties … and we will keep innovating as the time passes by.” Bushido 3rd Birthday, Seef, Jun 7. Tickets pre-sale at BD10 or VIP BD20 until Jun 6 and will be full price on the day at BD15 and BD45 for VIP. Call (17 583 555).

Then the second day is the adventure day, starting early in the morning and taking boats out to go fishing, pearl hunting, snorkelling around a shipwreck, dolphin watching and exploring Jarada island.
There’ll also be competitions throughout with lots of prizes to be won.

They’re bringing DJO who’s played at some of London’s hippest venues to Block 338 on June 7. His bag is Baltimore, progressive house, tech house, rock and funk.
