'We are thrilled to announce we will be opening a sophisticated new bar on the 27th floor, adjacent to the famous Skyview Bar (above), offering a unique and intimate feel, with floor-to-ceiling views of the city and the Arabian Gulf,' a statement read.
The same page also reveals an opening date of November 2015.
Earlier this year, we were told that the hotel wanted to make a push to 'become more accessible' without harming the ultra-luxurious reputation it has rightfully earned. With that in mind, perhaps the new venue will be more understated than its neighbour.
Time Out Dubai reached out to our contacts to see what other information was available, but no-one was available to comment at the time of writing. We will, though, bring you all the news when we get it.
As well as this exciting new opening, the Burj Al Arab is also 'significantly upgrading' their Bab Al Yam poolside restaurant with 'outstanding new design and interactive kitchen'. That will open before the year is out.
So by 2016, guests and visitors will be able to enjoy eight food and beverage outlets, including Al Mahara, the world-famous 'underwater' restaurant which is built around an aquarium.
Beyond that, the Burj Al Arab, which is plonked on a man-made island some 280 metres off the Jumeirah coastline, is actually expanding its land. The first-phase will be completed in December.
