Black Tap opens at JBR

Burgers, shakes and more at the second Dubai outlet of Black Tap

1/8

Fans of burgers and freakshakes, listen up, the news you’ve been waiting for has finally arrived, Black Tap JBR is now open.

Time Out Dubai went along to check out the new location, at the Rixos Premium Dubai, JBR and it’s safe to say it looks pretty cool.

The first Dubai outpost of the New York burger joint opened at Jumeirah Al Naseem earlier this year and was a massive hit.

Black Tap, set up by Michelin-starred chef Joe Isidori, offers food that’s as tasty as it is Instagrammable. Famed for its monster burgers and towering, multi-coloured freakshakes, the menu at the new Black Tap will be the same as the original, so if you love the All American Cheeseburger as much as we do, you’re in luck.

The menu is split into burgers, salads and sides, with tacos, fish and chips and wings dotted around the edges. Then of course are the shakes, which are not to be missed.

The cool new eatery is one of a string to open up in the hotel this year. It joins STK JBR The Walk, which threw open its doors at this start of this month (Friday December 1), as well as Lock, Stock & Barrel, Inner City Zoo, Riviera Grill and Azure Beach alongside the hotel’s all-day dining location Turquoise.

Italian restaurant Luigia is also now open, so there’s a whole host of dining options. But if you want burgers, you know where to head.

That’s your weekend calories accounted for.

Open Sat-Wed 11am-midnight; Thu-Fri 11am-1am. Rixos Premium Dubai, JBR. www.blacktapme.com.
