Gökhan Girmez is a powerhouse of talent with an interest in all things beautiful – whether it’s a well-tailored suit or a gorgeous food spread – one look at his socials and you’ll know exactly what we’re talking about.

When he’s not jet-setting across the globe or sitting front row at fashion shows, Gökhan manages PR & Communications for two of the best venues in Downtown Dubai – The Galliard and HuQQa. We thought it’d be fun to get to know him a bit better:

Q) Who’s the nicest celebrity you’ve met so far?

I'd say Floyd Mayweather. People often have a different perception of him because of the way he presents himself in the media, but I found him extremely humble with a genuine interest in people. He asked me a lot of questions about myself and my friends too. Impressive man.

Q) What’s a fashion trend you can never get tired of?

Vintage watches– I have a whole collection! I also love wearing light-wash denim. I also have collection of shoes that match what I wear everyday.

Q) How do you like to chill out on your day off?

I really like the vibe going on at The Galliard which makes my job a whole lot easier! I also like to try out new cuisines so I end up discovering a lot of new restaurants in the city. Of course, after all that food, I usually end up in the gym where I love to run and lift heavy.

Q) What’s the first thing you notice about someone when you meet them?

I notice the way a person dresses – it shows how they feel about themselves on the inside.

Q) Your favorite party in Dubai?

WHITE Dubai! I appreciate the management and how they really put in a lot of effort into making each night fabulous. Special thanks to Mr Elie Saba.

Q) As a foodie, what’s the one Turkish dish that you’d recommend to anybody?

I am a big meat lover! I can’t get enough of the Charcoal Doner Kebab at HuQQa, it’s called Iskender – like Alexander the Great but far more stronger and heavier than him!

Q) Where can we find the best view of the Burj Khalifa in Dubai?

The Galliard, of course! It’s got everything you could want in a venue–an unbeatable view of the Burj Khalifa, delicious food and a ‘grammable spot called the “#burjmoon". We’ve had a number of influencers visit us only so they could get their pictures taken here!

Q) Who’s your biggest fashion inspiration?

David Beckham! Whether it’s a classic suit or a white T-shirt, he can making anything seem fashionable! Tom Hardy is a fashion icon too.

Q) Since you love travelling, where will you be going to next?

I’ve always wanted to go to Bali. I've made a promise to myself that one day, I will wake up in Bali – so I’m definitely going there next!
