There were plenty of tears shed when the much-loved Metropolitan Hotel was razed to the ground to make way for Al Habtoor City back in 2012. But like a phoenix from the flames, one of Dubai’s most iconic haunts is set to be reborn along Sheikh Zayed Road. The new-fangled Metropolitan is set to be a fourstar boutique hotel with 334 rooms and suites. Although information about the project is a little hard to come by, a pair of old favourites – The Red Lion and Don Corleone Italian Restaurant – are set to be revived. Everyone loves a good sequel, right?
