A Guinness World Record Was Smashed In Dubai The Other Night
The Huddle Sports Bar & Grill, which is located at both Citymax Al Barsha and Bur Dubai officially broke the Guinness World Record on Monday night.
For what you ask? The Longest Domino Drop Shot. Yes, you heard right. And it was all in honour of the venues fifth anniversary.
The previous record was set in the Bahamas at 4,107 shots by Señor Frogs bar. The Huddle’s goal was to exceed this amount with a total of 6,148 drop shots and after 22 hours of set-up time, they succeeded in their goal. According to the Guinness World Records adjudicator, there were 4,578 correctly fallen shot glasses meaning they have just set a new bar.
“There is a significant amount of preparation and planning that goes into achieving a record of this size and nature. If the glasses aren’t perfectly aligned or pushed at the right angles, it can all go wrong. It’s the Huddles fifth anniversary year and we wanted to mark the occasion with an event that celebrates who we are as a brand and team, achieving the near impossible with our creative bar staff and putting The Huddle on the map!”
