Situated on the highest floor of the iconic landmark, the bar overlooks the Arabian Gulf and Dubai skyline. But it doesn't just settle for a good view, claiming instead to host ‘masters in the art of mixology’.
While the hotel is known for its exclusivity, with entrance to the property restricted to reservations and hotel guests only, the new spot promises to be more accessible to guests and has created a new app that allows you to make a booking for the bar on the day of your visit. Tables and seating are open and no minimum spend charge is required.
"The Burj has a reputation for being very difficult to get into and for being very exclusive, but we're trying to breakdown that boundary; we don’t want it to be inaccessible," the bar's general manager Paul Bradley told Time Out Dubai. "The dress code will also be more down-to-earth - no fancy suits or top hats."
Staying true to its name, the spacious venue is kitted out in gold furnishings. The textured walls of the bar shimmer, while the lighting effects create a sophisticated atmosphere, picking out flashes of the bar’s art deco design. The floor-to-ceiling windows show off the Burj’s prime location and offer views across both land and sea.
