akon*Akon is doing big things. No, he’s really doing big things!

The multi-platinum singer/songwriter/producer has expanded his empire to include the new “jewel of the Caribbean”, the spacious nightclub Jewel in the Dominican Republic.

To celebrate the club’s opening, Akon appointed official KonLive Dance DJ SmashKash to provide the soundtrack for the evening and he kept partygoers on the dance floor all night long. Akon pulled out all the stops for the grand occasion, a fire dancer planted near the DJ booth, Jewel’s “Angel Dancers” donned various stages around the club and numerous champagne bottles complete with sparklers lit the path to the stage where Akon performed many of his hits.

With its three levels and over 10,000 sq. feet, Jewel is beset with cutting edge sound, visual and lighting equipment designed to redefine the nightclub experience, not only in Punta Cana, but around the world. The club consists of four areas: the main room, the 2nd level VIP balcony, the glass-encased Retro Techno room that overlooks the main dance floor the outdoor terrace for the more relaxed club goer with his view of the surrounding beach, hotels and gold course.

From its grand opening and grand layout, it’s obvious Akon intends for Jewel to ascend to the top of the first-class nightclubs and one event created to separate this from other clubs is the “Full Moon” party. These will be monthly events that are surely NOT to be missed; the sky is the limit when you’re jumping around on the dance floor in the middle of the breathtaking rooftop terrace. Or you can choose to reserve one of the 3 VIP Jacuzzi and gaze at the full Caribbean Moon, like you’ve never seen it before!

Of the course the terrace is open other nights for you to sneak away for a quick dip in the middle of the fiesta. Jewel aims to be a premium nightclub with premium services, but without the premium prices and pretension that usually accompanies such extravagance. The concept of the club derives from the evolution of discos and nightclubs around the world, infusing the five senses to elevate the experience to a level that will leave you with memories that will last far beyond earshot of the music.
